It will also include The Joint Commission, CMS Hospital Conditions of Participation, case law discussion, organization position statements on DNR (do not resuscitate), and other federal laws on advance directives.
Sign up for this 90-minute webinar by nurse attorney Sue Dill who will explain the latest updates to the advance directives standard and what a hospital must do if a patient who has no advance directives on file and a support person shows up.
