Top five most challenging requirements for 2016

The Joint Commission collects data on organizations’ compliance with standards, National Patient Safety Goals (NPSGs), the Universal Protocol for Preventing Wrong Site, Wrong Procedure, Wrong Person Surgery™, and Accreditation and Certification Participation Requirements to identify trends and focus education on challenging requirements. The table below identifies the Top 5 Joint Commission requirements identified most frequently as “not compliant” during surveys and reviews from Jan. 1, 2016, through Dec. 31, 2016. The data represents citations only from organizations due to be surveyed during this time period — that is, data from for-cause surveys and for-cause reviews are not included. For more information, see the April issue of Perspectives or the Standards Frequently Asked Questions.
