ARE YOU READY????
Organizations are reminded that the new CMS Emergency Preparedness Conditions of Participation for all programs took effect on November 15, 2017. This is the date that organizations were expected to be in full compliance with these regulations which were published in 2016. To help organizations, CMS provided the attached PDF that can be customized by your organization as a means to educate your team members about the new requirements. Accrediting and Regulatory agencies have been advised to begin surveying to these new requirements immediately.
