Healthcare-Associated Infections: An Overview of Regulatory Requirements Applicable to Hospitals and Other Healthcare Facilities
Online webinar provided through Compliance Online (2013)
  • Julie Reagan, Georgia Southern University
Abstract

The majority of U.S. states have responded to the occurrence of HAIs by implementing state-level HAI prevention and public reporting programs. Most states have also enacted legislation and promulgated administrative regulations placing mandates on hospitals and other healthcare facilities to report data on HAIs. In addition, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has implemented its HAI reporting program requiring reporting of HAI data by Medicare certified facilities.

This 90-minute online webinar will provide an overview of the regulatory landscape applicable to HAI data reporting and infection prevention. For those individuals not familiar with HAIs, the webinar will begin with an overview of the various infections that may be acquired in the healthcare setting and will provide a basic introductory overview of the regulatory landscape applicable to HAI public reporting and prevention. The course will provide a current and comprehensive review of U.S. state laws applicable to HAIs as well as a detailed discussion of federal CMS reporting requirements.
