Keeping tabs on the latest news and updates from the Joint Commission can be challenging. Luckily, there are some great resources on the web to help:
The Joint Commission has partnered with the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) to provide information to reduce non-compliance in several Standards frequently cited in surveys over the past few years. Thus far, the Joint Commission has released a Utility Systems module, which will be followed by one covering automated suppression systems.
Earlier this year, our subject-matter experts conducted a webinar to discuss key updates released by the Joint Commission in 2015. View a recorded video of the session here.
In a recent blog post, we detailed some key regulatory reports for hospitals that help ensure that you are approved for a regulatory audit. Within the post, we include some sample reports and key information that you should cover within your reporting methods.
