Ligature Risks: Ensuring Compliance with the CMS Hospital CoPs and TJC Requirements

Every hospital needs to attend this webinar. It is now a hot area and there is a lot of survey activity around prevention of suicidal patients from harm or strangulation. The Joint Commission announced that this is one of the four top areas of focus. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has promulgated requirements for hospitals to prevent ligature risk and self harm from patients that are suicidal. A 13 page memo was issued and the hospital manual was amended on December 29, 2017 to implement these changes. Any hospital that received Medicare, which is most hospitals in America, must implement these changes for all patients.
