When the Joint Commission hands out a Preliminary Denial of Accreditation (PDA) decision, you have a small window to set things right. If you can’t get your hospital to band together to fix the problem, a PDA can cost you your accreditation, reputation, and ability to treat patients. And that’s before CMS gets involved.

Join former Joint Commission surveyor Kurt Patton, MS, RPh, this August as he reviews how you might get a PDA, what you can do about it, and what surveyors will expect during their follow-up.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Contest a PDA decision
  • Develop a corrective action plan in less than 10 days
  • Focus and prepare for the 60-day PDA follow-up survey
  • Get organized and keep staff and leaders accountable for deadlines
  • Prioritize the most difficult performance-based findings in preparation for the 60-day follow-up survey

Agenda

  • What to do if you think an “immediate threat” or “immediate jeopardy” situation is pending
  • What to do if your report is posted and you are surprised to learn it is PDA
  • How to develop a strategy to dig your way out of this situation
  • How to do a corrective action plan in contrast with an Evidence of Standards Compliance (ESC)
  • How to prepare for the most difficult survey you’ve ever experienced: the 60-day PDA follow-up survey
  • Live Q&A
