CMS aims to bolster emergency preparedness
from Christina Thielst
Healthcare is increasingly being delivered outside of hospitals in widely diverse settings. However, the level of preparedness for disasters and emergencies varies — even though disasters stress the entire system. The latest Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) final rule establishes consistency with requirements for all who participate in Medicare and Medicaid. The regulations will lead to increased patient safety during emergencies and more coordinated responses to natural and man-made disasters.
