State Operations Manual (SOM) Hospital Appendix A Update
CMS is clarifying our guidance related to training requirements for personnel administering blood transfusions and intravenous
(IV) medications, and to the requirement for immediate reporting of drug administration errors, adverse drug events, and incompatibilities.
Attached is an advance copy of the SOM Appendix A reflecting these updates. The final version of Appendix A will be issued
at a later date, and may reflect some changes from this advance copy.
