Why Should you Attend
This program will discuss the CMS hospital conditions of participation requirements for dietary and food and nutrition services. It is an important part of the CMS survey and this area has received increased scrutiny of their standards especially in the area of Infection control.

CMS has issued a deficiency report. This program will cover the common deficiencies received by hospitals from CMS in this area. Do you know which ones are the top problematic standards?

This program will also cover the Joint Commission provision of care chapter standards related to dietary and the TJC dietary tracer information. The tracer is used to assess and determine the degree of compliance with standards and elements of performance related to nutrition care. The tracer used through dietetic and food services covers some of the same issues discussed during the CMS survey.

This webinar will discuss the DNV Healthcare dietary standards.
