CMS estimates that compliance with the patient rights provisions of the new Home Health Conditions of Participation (CoP) will be the most costly, with a price tag of $147 million and a time commitment of 2 million hours. Out of all the CoPs, the draft interpretive guidelines around patient rights are the most extensive and will require the most work when it comes to updating policies and procedures. Home health agencies that don’t put in that work could face deficiencies on a survey.

During this 90-minute on-demand webinar, expert speaker J'non Griffin, RN, MHA, WCC, HCS-D, HCS-H, COS-C, will explain the steps needed to ensure appropriate timing and communication of patients’ rights. Participants will also learn how to create and/or update patient rights policies and procedures to comply with the new CoP.

At the conclusion of this on-demand program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the changes they must make to their patient rights forms, policies, and procedures
  • Avoid common survey deficiencies involving patient rights
