Description

Informed consent is a costly deficiency for hospitals that can be easily prevented. A recent study found that misplaced consent forms cost hospitals $580,000 each year, and 66% of patients were missing signed consent forms at surgery, delaying 10% of surgical procedures.

This program will provide the current CMS CoPs for hospitals and critical access hospitals, and The Joint Commission and DNV Healthcare standards on informed consent requirements. Hospitals should ensure that their policies and procedures reflect the CMS requirements and that their staff are educated on the 6 mandatory elements in an informed consent form. Our expert will discuss specific state laws on informed consent, and guidelines on informed consent from the American College of Surgeons, American Society of Anesthesiologists, and the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists.
