Zero deficiencies found in CCH survey

 

Cuero Community Hospital was surveyed on Sept. 10-11 by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, commonly referred to as CMS. CMS exists as a branch of the Department of Health and Human Services and is responsible for the operations of the Medicare program. Because CMS is a government agency, the establishment of standards and regulations is a public process. The conditions of participation can be defined as a set of regulatory standards which hospitals agree to meet as a condition for receiving federal funding through the Medicare and Medicaid programs. 
 
CMS contracts with state departments of health care licensure to conduct random surveys of acute care hospitals and enforce compliance with the conditions.
