& Interpretive Guidelines for Ambulatory Surgery Centers
The 2015 Edition of the Industry’s most widely respected tool for preparing for Medicare Surveys revised through May 2015. Medicare & Accreditation Surveys are becoming tougher. Understanding the Conditions for Coverage for an ASC as well as how they are interpreted by CMS is critical for ASC leaders. This resource takes the Conditions for Coverage, the Interpretive Guidelines & the Clarifications and presents the information in an easy to read format with extensive cross-referencing and annotations. Also included in the book are copies of the forms used by surveyors, including the 2013 revised Infection Control Survey Form. The appendices also include the Interpretive Guidance for surveyors when determining “Immediate Jeopardy” and a copy of Appendix I – the Interpretive Guidance for the Life Safety Code. This book is an essential resource for every Ambulatory Surgery Center Administrator and Nurse Manager.
Note that the author publishes a new edition within 90-120 days after CMS issues revised regulations or interpretations. We will update this web site when the book is under revision. Based on information currently available – a new edition is not expected until the 3rd Quarter 2016.
