Patient Rights Policy and Procedures Manual

Effective January 13, 2018, CMS implemented new Conditions of Participation for home health. This is the first significant overhaul of these CoPs in decades. Part of the overhaul are new requirements regarding patient rights, and this binder provides template policies and procedures to comply with the new regulations.

Patient rights has been the subject of increasing survey focus in the past few years. This trend will certainly continue under the new CoPs, especially because the new Patient Rights CoP broadens the scope of patient rights as evidenced by the significant focus on patients’ rights in the draft interpretive guidelines. This is a strong indicator that surveyors will continue to focus on patients’ rights. You and your staff need to be thoroughly prepared.
