Hospital surveys by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services: an analysis of more than 34,000 deficiencies.

Antognini JF. J Patient Saf. 2021;17(4):e274-e279.

Using ten years of Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) hospital deficiency data, this study determined conditions of participation (CoP) in each deficiency. Patient death was more likely to be associated with the determination of immediate jeopardy (the most serious potential risk). The most common reason for the determination of immediate jeopardy was failure to provide adequate nursing care. These results can help guide hospitals in improving healthcare delivery and patient safety.
