CMS just released 15 pages of proposed changes to the CMS Conditions of Participation (CoP) requirements to prevent ligature risk and self-harm for patients that are suicidal. This workshop will include these brand-new guideline changes CMS just released for 2019. Changes include revisions to the patient rights and facility services sections of the CoPs. These impact not only behavioral health hospitals and behavioral health units but also any unit with patients with suicidal ideations such as the emergency department or medical surgical units.
The Joint Commission (TJC) also has requirements to ensure compliance with their standards on reducing ligature risk in psych hospitals, behavior health units, and general hospital inpatient units, outpatient units and emergency departments. CMS expert, Sue Dill Calloway, will provide complete details on how to comply with CMS standards and TJC requirements to reduce ligature risk as well as gain an understanding of TJC's zero-suicide campaign.
Sue Dill Calloway, RN, MSN, JD CPHRM, CCMSCP, has been a nurse attorney and medical-legal consultant for more than 30 years. She has presented numerous educational programs for nurses, physicians, and other health care professionals on topics such as patient safety, Joint Commission, CMS, and HIPAA issues.
Sue is the past Director of Hospital Patient Safety with The Doctors Company and OHIC Insurance Company. She is on the board for the Emergency Medicine Patient Safety Foundation and previously was their chief learning officer.
The Joint Commission announced that this is one of the four top areas of focus. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has promulgated requirements for hospitals to prevent ligature risk and self-harm from patients that are suicidal. Every hospital needs to attend this workshop and be familiar with the brand-new updates that were just released.
