ECRI Institute has published special advisories on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' (CMS) final rule on hospital-acquired conditions. These documents discuss the details of the rule, present-on-admission codes and conditions for payment, and response strategies. The special advisories include lists of standards and guidelines to prevent such events, codes that CMS states are associated with a hospital-acquired condition, and ECRI Institute resources that may assist facilities in addressing the rule.
In addition, ECRI Institute has produced a 4-minute video on the CMS initiative [note: video requires Windows Media Player].
