Compliance with the Conditions of Participation (CoP) is required to meet Medicare and Medicaid hospital regulations. While CMS posts updates to the CoPs on its website, they are often difficult to search and lengthy, not to mention tedious to print.

This is where HCPro comes in! We have taken the most recent version of CMS’ CoPs and the corresponding Interpretive Guidelines (IG) and reprinted them in an easy-to-use format to simplify your job.

  • Provides an easy-to-read hard-copy reference of CoPs and IGs, which are difficult to find online and lengthy and tedious to print
  • Includes the most recent CoP IGs from CMS
  • Includes the most recent EMTALA IGs
  • Includes CMS survey protocol

CMS updates the CoPs a few times a year. This new edition will contain the most recent CoPs and Survey and Certification memos, which include new requirements on ligature risk, texting patient information, and door-closing devices.
