ABSTRACT
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has proposed new and revised Conditions for Coverage for surgery centers. • ASCs would be required to notify patients of their rights, including patients who don't understand English. • ASCs would be required to prevent, control, and investigate infections and communicable diseases, and take action that results in improvements for problem areas. They would have to designate an infection control officer. • Documentation of the history and physical would be required to be in the patient's chart before a procedure began. • Physicians or qualified practitioners who performed the surgery would be required to be available until the discharge order was signed. INSET: Revisions proposed for 3 conditions.
