CMS Hospital Restraint and Seclusion Webinar
Wednesday, June 19, 2019, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT
Category: Education

Did you know that the number one area of deficiencies in the CMS CoP is regarding restraints? CMS issued a memo summarizing all of the deficiencies against hospitals which is updated quarterly. This program will discuss the most problematic standards in the restraint section. If a CMS surveyor showed up at your hospital tomorrow would you be prepared? Does your staff understand all 50 pages of the CMS interpretive guidelines? This program will also discuss the proposed changes to restraints published in the Hospital Improvement Rule which address changing the term to licensed practitioners so PAs can order restraints.

Did you know any physician or provider who orders restraint must be trained in the hospital’s policy? Did you know that both CMS and Joint Commission require hospital staff to be educated on restraint and seclusion interpretive guidelines? This program can be used to help hospitals meet this requirement. CMS also says that restraint training must be on-going so you can’t just provide training at orientation and forget about it. Did you know that CMS has ten pages of training requirements?
