- Presentation Date | May 11, 2023
Program Description: CMS has updated the surveyor protocols and trainings for hospice under direct pressure from the OIG. These surveys are intended on insuring all hospices are providing the
quality of care that we all want in our industry- but it still may increase the difficulty we find with the survey process to ensure full compliance. These rules are being
applied whether you are surveyed by your state, or by an accrediting organization such as Joint Commission, CHAP or ACHC. This session reviews the changes, but even more
importantly provides insights on how to best prepare for these new interview questions, home visit observations and high risk record review areas. Bonus: Tools will be
provided for your own preparation and success!

Reporting of Perceived Bias
Bias, as defined by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation (ANCC COA/LSNA) is the “tendency or inclination to cause partiality, favoritism, or influence.”
Commercial bias may occur when a CNE activity promotes one or more product(s) (drugs, devices, services, software, hardware, etc.). This definition is not all inclusive and participants may use
their own interpretation in deciding if a presentation is biased. The ANCC COA is interested in the opinions and perceptions of participants at approved CNE activities, especially in the presence
of actual or perceived bias in continuing education. Therefore, ANCC invites participants to access their “ANCC Accreditation Feedback Line” to report any noted bias or conflict of interest in the
education activity. The toll free number is 1(866) 262-9730.
