An announcement that CMS surveyors have arrived on site can strike fear into the hearts of the unprepared.  This session will discuss specific Conditions of Participation (CoP) requirements that typically fall to Medical Staff Services (MSS) personnel, and will highlight additional requirements and activities that MSS personnel can do that will demonstrate excellence and a systems approach to surveyors.

What You Will Learn:

At the end of these presentations, participants will be able to:

  • Articulate the CMS Conditions of Participation that have the most impact on Medical Staff Services.
  • Apply survey survival hints to their own organization to identify any gaps between their current state and what is expected under CMS.
  • Develop an action plan to address those gaps.
