KHA to Host Ligature Risks Webinar
Monday, December 17, 2018 1:42 PM
On February 19, KHA will host a webinar on Ligature Risks:Ensuring Compliance with the
CMS Hospital CoPs and TJC
Requirements. This a hot topic, and there is a great deal of survey activity around prevention of suicidal patients from harm or strangulation.
The Joint Commission announced that this is one of the four top areas of focus. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has promulgated requirements for hospitals to prevent ligature risk and self harm from patients that are suicidal. A 13-page memo was issued and the hospital manual was amended on December 29, 2017, to implement these changes. Any hospital that received Medicare, which is most hospitals in America, must implement these changes for all patients.
