We were recently told that in order to register Medicare patients, we had to
actually contact each patient for all the necessary information. When we
asked questions about specimens, etc. no one had an answer for us. JCAHO is
coming to our institution in July. We were told that we were not in
compliance at this time and that next week sometime we will need to register
patients differently. I just can't imagine contacting each and every
patient. Does anyone else have this compliance issue? Any input would be
very greatly appreciated.
