Overview: This program will discuss the CMS worksheet on discharge planning. The discharge planning worksheet states that the necessary medical record information, such as a discharge summary, should be dictated and in the hands of the primary care physician or other physician before the first visit. Is your hospital familiar with the interpretive guidelines and the worksheet information? Come learn what other important things CMS has in their revised worksheet on preventing hospital readmissions!! CMS has recently issued their third revisions to the worksheets.

Every hospital that accepts Medicare and Medicaid must be in compliance with the CMS discharge planning guidelines. These standards must be followed for all patients and not just Medicare or Medicaid. CMS requires a number of discharge planning policies and procedures so come learn which ones are required and why. CMS is placing a high priority on improving patient safety and the quality of care. This is consistent with their initiative, the Partnership for Patients: Better Care, Lower Costs, which is aimed to keep patients from getting injured or harmed while in the hospital setting. The goal is to reduce hospitals acquired conditions by 20%. CMS feels that hospitals in full compliance with the hospital CoPs will be in a better position to reduce healthcare acquired conditions.

The A to Zs of Microbial Control Monitoring and validation of Pharmaceutical Water Systems
5/1/2014 9:00 AM - 5/2/2014 6:00 PM
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel San Diego Downtown San Diego, California United States
Event Listing

This course is designed to provide a microbiology-focused education about all aspects of water systems and how biofilm manages to thrive there. Prior microbiological education or training, though a plus, is not a requirement because engineers and other non-biologists also need this training if they are involved with any aspect of water systems. The instructor will provide the necessary background needed to understand this very important subject matter. This understanding is essential to the proper design, validation, operation, monitoring, maintenance, troubleshooting, and excursion investigations of a high purity water system. Without this understanding, water system control consists of a set of rules that often don't work and can cause very costly system downtime or even product recalls, and leaves the user without a clue as to what went wrong or how to effectively fix it so it doesn't recur.
