Identifying possible deficiencies and making corrections is critical to ensuring safe patient care. Of course, it is best to discover any issues prior to a survey. Recently the most common deficiencies from the hospital relicensing surveys (completed from March 2017 through Feb 2018) was released. Understanding these deficiencies can benefit you as you monitor your own hospital’s policies and procedures. Some of these findings could be simply fixes while others were high-risk situations and could result in potential patient harm and/or administrative penalties.

Listen to this update on CDPH issues, which will include a CDPH discussion on medication safety violations and methods to ensure compliance. CDPH will also discuss infection prevention strategies. Participants will also receive an update from CHA on recent legislation and clarification on recent programs.
