Speak Up Against Discrimination

It is undeniable that racism is a patient safety issue. The Joint Commission has standards to guide its accredited and certified organizations to help ensure that all people receive care that is free from discrimination.

Speak Up™ Against Discrimination, a patient safety campaign from The Joint Commission, focuses on what rights patients have and what they can do if they feel they are being discriminated against and receiving substandard care.
