      CENTER FOR MEDICARE AND MEDICAID SERVICES (CMS) OUTLINES CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION (COP) UPDATE:
      The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services
      outlines a number of Conditions of Participation for hospital-based staff
      who care for Medicare patients.  As a participating hospital, we are
      required to comply with all of these COPs. One such COP states that all
      patient medical record entries must be legible, complete, dated, timed and
      authenticated in written or electronic form by the person responsible for
      providing or evaluating the service provided, consistent with hospital
      policies and procedures.  As an institution we do well with each of these
      components with the exception of timing the entry.  A recent chart review
      identified 28 entries by a number of disciplines.  Only 14 of the 28 (50
      percent) entries included a time with the entry.  We are taking additional
      steps to assure that all entries are timed.  We appreciate your help in
      complying with this COP.  Questions?  Call Tom Murphy, MD, at
937-641-5871.
