You should already be aware of the Scope of Practice changes that went into effect on January 1 that no longer allow non-credentialed individuals to be privileged for patient care, but just in case you still have questions about what this means for your practice, here is a quick recap. Keep in mind that surveyors are now verifying that you are in compliance with these new rules.
Facilities that are only privileging staff members with an O&P credential do not need to make any changes to their current protocol.
