Psych360 Releases Article on CMS Regulations and Compliance

<p>July 29, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Psych360, an on-site psychiatric service provider, seeks to clear up some of the confusion around CMS regulation and compliance in long-term care facilities. In the recent article, “<a href="https://psych360.org/psychiatric-services/what-you-need-to-know-about-cms-regulations-and-compliance/">What You Need to Know About CMS Regulations and Compliance</a>”, Nicole Coniglio, President & Chief Medical Officer, MSN, APRN, PMHNP-BC, ACNP-BC Board Certified Advanced Practice Nurse discusses the history of CMS regulations, the phases already in place, those still to come, and how compliance affects long-term care facilities and communities:</p> <p>“A facility's rating–up to five stars–is based on CMS regulations. Patients and hospitals both use these ratings as a judge of the facility's effectiveness. Hospitals may see a low rating as a risk of a returned patient (which is a cost to the hospital, as they only get paid the first time they admit a patient, and not for any return visits the patient makes through a facility). A caretaker or family member may worry about the level of care given to their loved one.”</p> <p>The article continues by discussing some priorities of CMS, such as proper diagnoses, patient prioritization, and proper paperwork. There is also discussion of the 14 Day Rule, which states that “a facility cannot prescribe antipsychotics PRN, or as needed, for any more than 14 days.” Then, the article covers Psych360’s abilities in helping to maintain CMS compliance.</p> <p>The article mainly benefits Directors of Nursing at long-term care, assisted living facilities, and skilled nursing facilities. Psych360 is committed to serving the <a href="https://presssynergy.com/newsroom/psych360-discusses-the-importance-of-recognizing-mental-illness-in-dementia-patients/">long-term care community</a> with psychiatric care and CMS compliance assistance.
