Description

During this program, attendees will learn all The National Patient Safety Goals (NPSGs) for hospitals and how those goals compare and contrast to CMS standard equivalents. Infection control standards and NPSGs on infection control issues are very important to hospitals and healthcare facilities, as are the goals regarding alarm management. Our experts will provide extensive details on these topics along with TJC's Sentinel Event Alert on alarm fatigue.

As part of this program, our experts will detail proposed changes, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, as well as goals related to anticoagulation, central line-associated infections, and surgical site infections with related tool kits. Attendees will learn about CMS' revised blood transfusion standards and how those compare to NPSG counterparts. Additionally we'll also offer medication reconciliation standards, discuss why CMS now has added this requirement to one of their three hospital worksheets, and recount stories of hospitals that have successfully complied with the NPSGs.

Quality Assurance (QA) and Performance Improvement (PI) is one of three CoP sections with a correlating CMS worksheet. State and federal surveyors use the worksheet on all survey activities in hospitals when assessing compliance with the QAPI standards, including validation and certification surveys.

Our expert will also discuss the CMS memo on Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Common Formats. The Common Formats define a systematic process for reporting adverse events, near misses, and unsafe conditions, and allow a hospital to report harm from all causes. CMS estimated that 86% of adverse events are never reported to the hospital’s PI program, which is why QAPI is an area of focus for surveyors.
