CoP: Informed Consent: Ensuring Compliance with CMS, TJC and DNV: More than Just a Signature

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.
