Emergency preparedness drills are a core concept in emergency planning for hospitals and healthcare systems. Now they are required annually under the new CMS Emergency Preparedness Guidelines which went into effect in November 2016.  Every hospital and healthcare system must be in compliance with the new regulations by November 2017 or they risk losing CMS funding. 

To help ensure your drills are CMS-ready, we invited Dr. Goldman, to share his best strategies for a successful drill. He will discuss: 

  • What the new CMS emergency preparedness drill guidelines mean for hospitals
  • How to get started
  • The Top Five points every successful drill must address
  • Resources needed for a successful drill
  • You have conducted a successful drill -- now what?
