CMS made multiple changes to the Infection control standards in late 2019. Twenty-five new Tag numbers were established for critical access hospitals, along with a requirement for each facility to have an antibiotic stewardship program – ASP. Other changes include the requirement for a qualified infection preventionist and leader of the ASP. This webinar will cover the multiple changes, such as safe injection practices, disinfection devises and the 49-page worksheet, which though not used during a CAH survey, it provides vital information for any hospital to have for optimal compliance.
