Applying Regulations in Varying Care Settings

There are common overarching standards in health care regulation, but there are important differences depending on the practice setting. This assignment is designed to familiarize you with conditions of coverage and participation specific to different types of health care organizations.
Choose two different practice settings–one that represents where you currently work or have worked and another that you are interested in exploring.
Examine the similarities and differences in conditions of coverage and participation related to two factors. Consider:
• Staffing requirements
• Release of patient records
• Patient rights
• Administrative structure
• Another aspect relative to the specific care environment
