Boards and Medical Staff

November 7 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am MST

Complying with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Conditions of Participation (CoPs)

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) hospital CoPs has sections on both board and medical staff and includes information on credentialing and privileging requirements; implementing Medical Staff (MS) bylaws and rules and regulations; hospitals in systems; board responsibility for quality and safety; sharing a board in hospital systems; policy development; and history and physicals.

Many changes were made April of 2015 and some hospitals are still struggling to ensure compliance. Therefore, the board and medical staff sections will be discussed in detail. CMS allows a hospital system to share a medical staff; CMS refers to this as a unified and integrated medical staff. Boards must directly consult with an individual who is responsible for the conduct of the medical staff at least twice a year. The medical staff can credential the dietician to order diet and the registered dietician can be a member of the medical staff or just credentialing and privileging without being a member of the medical staff. Attendees will learn more about these and other changes and updates for boards and medical staff.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the CMS CoPs section related to the Board and medical staff.
  • Describe how hospitals can have a separate medical staff or a unified and shared integrated medical staff.
  • Explain how CMS will allow the medical staff to credential qualified dieticians to order the patient’s diet.

CEOs, CNOs, CMOs, nurse supervisors, compliance officers, risk managers, patient safety, legal counsel and compliance officers, health information management, pharmacy staff, dieticians, radiology, nurse educators and others interested in Board and medical staff CoPs changes.
