How has your facility determined the best approach to implementing the new rules in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Discharge Planning Conditions of Participation (COP), and will it be painful? Is this going to be the key to unlock utilizing quality facilities and agencies in your service area?
