  • Specific staff education requirements
  • Written blood glucose monitoring protocols
  • Plans for the treatment of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia
  • Data collection of incidences of hypoglycemia
  • Patient education on self-management of diabetes
  • An identified program champion or program champion team

Achievement of certification signifies that the services you provide have the critical elements to achieve long-term success in improving outcomes. It is the best signal to your community that the quality care you provide is effectively managed to meet the needs of patients. In fact, demonstrating compliance with these national standards and performance measurement expectations may help obtain contracts from employers and purchasers concerned with controlling costs and improving productivity.

The Joint Commission's inpatient Diabetes Certification Program is based on the ADA Clinical Practice Recommendations. The Inpatient Diabetes Certification Addendum identifies how the ADA Clinical Practice Recommendations are tied into Joint Commission certification standards. For more infomation see Clinical Practice Recommendations on the ADA website.
