Medications are involved in 80 percent of all treatments, the primary reason why medication procedures are closely monitored by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Surveyors are taking a particularly close look at your pharmacy procedures, including how you’re promoting safe opioid use, whether you have a compliant opioid policy, and how you ensure staff members dispense medications within one of three blocks of time. If your team needs to strengthen procedures on CMS pharmacy and medication conditions, like risk assessment and monitoring patients’ responses to medications, you won’t want to miss this informative webinar!
The MHA Health Foundation webinar Complying with the 2019 CMS Hospital Conditions of Participation: Pharmacy and Medication will review:
- Policies and procedures that measure compliance of all staff involved in the medication process.
- CMS requirements for beyond-use date and medication compounding.
- CMS requirement for a policy on high-risk drugs, such as dose limit or double checks.
- The role of physicians and nurses in supporting medication adherence.
