Webinar on Demand: “New Changes to Immediate Jeopardy”

Webinar Description:

In March of this year, CMS issued new surveyor guidance for assessing Immediate Jeopardy. The guidance included four major areas of change that took effect immediately. This 1-hour webinar will cover the new changes that went into effect, and how the changes are going to impact your next survey. One of the changes involves recognizing and citing “psychosocial harm” for IJ concerns. Added to this new guidance/policy change is the emphasis that the CMS RoP has placed on surveyor’s use of the “Psychosocial Negative Outcome” Guide. CMS states that IJ situations "must be accurately identified by surveyors, thoroughly investigated, and resolved by the entity as quickly as possible. In addition, noncompliance cited at IJ is the most serious deficiency type, and carries the most serious sanctions for providers, suppliers, or laboratories (entities). An immediate jeopardy situation is one that is clearly identifiable due to the severity of its harm or likelihood for serious harm and the immediate need for it to be corrected to avoid further or future serious harm.” We have already seen an increase in IJ citations during the past two years, and feel certain that there will be more IJ citations as a result of this new policy change. Give your professional staff the information needed to be prepared for this new survey focus! This is a Webinar on Demand, which means that your employees will be able to view the training at their convenience, whenever they prefer, as many times as they prefer, for up to one year after the webinar has been recorded. What a phenomenal training tool for experienced professionals, as well as new employee orientation!
