This webinar will cover the changes to the discharge planning standards which became effective November 2019. Though the standards were published in Feb. 2020, Interpretive Guidelines and Survey procedures are still pending. However, the standards apply to all hospitals, including Critical Access Hospitals. This program will discuss the Impact Act and its requirements for hospitals to assist patients with post-discharge care. Also discussed will be the new regulations on patients’ timely access to medical records, discharge planning process and requirements and discharge instructions. There will be discussion of the surveyor worksheet for assessing compliance with the conditions of participation. This worksheet will be revised to reflect the revised standards.
