This program will discuss the current CMS hospital conditions of Participation for Critical Access and Acute hospitals. Standards and requirements under Joint Commission and DNV Health will also be addressed. A recent study found consent forms were absent in 66% of patient in hospitals leading to a delay of surgical procedures in 10% of the cases. Informed consent is in three different sections of the hospital manual and requires inclusion of six mandatory elements. Hospitals that participate in Medicare/Medicaid must follow the standards for all patients, not just Medicare/Medicaid patients. Failure to follow the regulations could result in a citation or being excluded from the Medicare program.
