Description

Many changes have been made this past year to the accreditation process that CMS has imposed on all health care facilities that receive Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements. The Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP) has made many adjustments to the Life Safety, Emergency Management, and the Physical Environment chapters to meet these new challenges. In this session, participants will explore these changes and learn how to take action to prepare for an HFAP or a CMS survey.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify how the new CMS Final Rule on Emergency Management will affect your facility
  • Describe how the 2012 Life Safety Code® may bring many changes to the survey
  • Name the most commonly cited standards in the EM/PE/LS chapters
  • Explain when and how to apply for a time-limited waiver

Speaker(s):

  • Brad Keyes, CHSP, Engineering Advisor,, AAHHS & HFAP (AOA)
