Why Should You Attend:

CMS created a tag number to house the major section regarding standing order requirements in the medical record chapter under Tag 457. There are a total of four separate sections in the hospital CoP manual that regulate this issue. This has been confusing for hospitals because two of the sections did not link to the other requirements in the CMS manual. CMS also moved most of the standing order requirements from tag 405 into the new section on tag 457. Standing orders must address well defined clinical scenarios. Standing orders related to medications must be approved by the Medical staff and nursing and pharmacy leadership. When CMS rewrote all the radiology standards in July of 2015 and there are many required radiology protocols and policies.

The development of protocols and standing orders is best described as a journey. This online training will provide the history of each of the four sections and what each section requires hospitals to do. This webinar will clarify this confusing area and make the requirements understandable for hospitals. This is especially important as hospitals move toward a complete electronic medical record. It is important that any order in the electronic medical record populate the entire order in the order section.
