sea 34 meds rxWe are pleased to introduce the first issue of Sentinel Event Alert, a periodic publication dedicated to providing important information relating to the occurrence and management of sentinel events in Joint| Commission-accredited health care organizations. Sentinel Event Alert, to be published when appropriate as suggested by trend data, will provide ongoing communication regarding the Joint Commission's Sentinel Event Policy and Procedures, and most importantly, information about sentinel event prevention. It is our expectation and belief that in sharing information regarding the occurrence of sentinel events, we can ultimately reduce the frequency of medical errors and other adverse events.
