An abundance of initiatives can be a great sign of a vital organization with leaders who are committed to improving healthcare delivery. Unfortunately, there’s also a shadow side.
The Hospital Utilization Management Committee (UMC) – CMS Condition of Participation (CoPS) Requirement
Did you know that, almost hidden away in the Conditions of Participation, there is an oft-overlooked requirement that is ideal for increasing medical staff involvement and improving practice evaluation?
As staff joins an organization they need to have as part of their required orientation, a zero-tolerance policy introduction and education about their rights and responsibilities. Every right usually has an attendant responsibility. The prevention part is making sure that managers and medical staff leaders are all aware and have a similar zero-tolerance policy.
