Webinar Recording Explains New CDPH Administrative Penalties
Regulations took effect April 1

CHA hosted a members-only webinar last month, in conjunction with California Department of Public Health (CDPH) leadership, to explain new regulations regarding administrative penalties for hospital licensing violations that took effect April 1. The recording — available at — describes what surveyors will look for, as well as how they will determine if a violation is subject to penalty. Posted with the recording are webinar presentation slides, a detailed CHA memo about the penalty charges and information on CHA’s 2014 California Hospital Survey Manual, which is intended to help hospital staff understand and prepare for the survey and penalty processes, from start to finish.
