Critical Access Hospital (CAH) Conditions of Participation 2024

Part 1

Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) must comply with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Conditions of Participation located in Appendix W in the manual. This four-part webinar will cover the entire CAH CoP manual. The regulations and interpretive guidelines serve as the basis for determining compliance.
 
There were multiple changes and new regulations for CAHs in 2020, including a change to all the tag numbers. Most of the new Tag numbers do not include Interpretive Guidelines or Survey Procedures. Other changes included twenty-five new tag numbers in infection prevention and control and antibiotic stewardship and ten new tag numbers in QAPI. As for Swing Bed changes – the regulations are limited to Appendix W, but the interpretive guidelines and survey procedures are in Appendix PP.
 
This seminar will help CAHs comply with specific CoP problem areas, such as nursing care plans, necessary policies and procedures, medication carts and drug storage, informed consent, and medication administration to name a few.

Substance Abuse Disorder Records (42 CFR Part 2) Final Rule Is Here!

A Webinar Presentation by Quarles & Brady, LLP

The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) have released a Final Rule revising standards for the Confidentiality of Substance Use Disorder Patient Records under 42 C.F.R. Part 2.   It includes some welcome Part 2 amendments to better align Part 2 with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), but it also brings increased enforcement risks to an operationally tricky regulatory scheme. 
 
Attorneys Sarah Coyne and Ashleigh Giovannini from Quales & Brady LLP will present a review of the new rule and a checklist of suggested action items to accomplish before enforcement begins in the 3rd quarter of 2025.
