Webinar to Explore CMS Surgery, Anesthesia Service Requirements

The complex, fast-paced care delivered in surgical units can result in higher-than-expected errors. Wrong-patient mistakes, communication errors with anesthesiologists, and inadequate care may all occur while a patient awakens from anesthesia.

The MHA Health Foundation webinar “CMS Hospital Surgery, Anesthesia, and Postanesthesia Care Unit CoPs Requirements: Are You in Compliance?” webinar will review policies and procedures required by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Conditions of Participation related to surgery and anesthesia services, as well as the most cited deficiencies and how to avoid them.

The webinar is scheduled from 10 to 11:30 a.m. ET Oct. 19, and MHA members can register for a $195 connection fee. Members with questions should contact Erica Leyko at the MHA.
