Education and Training on Joint Commission Standards and Survey Process
Are you seeking successful survey results? If so, the first step is educating your team on the Joint Commission standards and survey process. Understanding the intent of the standards and how they’ll be applied in your organization is critical for survey success.
Tackling the Joint Commission Standards
Getting a grasp on the hundreds of different standards in the manual can be an overwhelming task. The Hospital manual has 18 chapters. The Behavioral Health manual has 15 chapters. Organizations typically have many questions. “Which standards apply to us? Which standards are the most important? How will the surveyors evaluate our compliance with the standards? Do you have samples of forms and tools that meet the standards?”
