Top five most challenging requirements for first half of 2016

Challenges_Ahead_signThe 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 Joint Commission has identified the Top 5 Joint Commission requirements cited most frequently as “not compliant” during surveys and reviews from Jan. 1 through June 30. 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 September issue of Perspectives or the Standards Frequently Asked Questions.
