Still time to comment on proposed new IC requirements for hospitals, critical access hospitals
There is still time to comment on The Joint Commission’s proposed new Infection Control (IC) chapter requirements. The proposed requirements are intended to replace the current IC chapter requirements for hospitals and critical access hospitals.
The primary goal of the revision project is to align the IC standards and elements of performance (EPs) more closely with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' Conditions of Participation and to streamline the chapter to be more cohesive and concise.
Comment now on the proposed requirements. Feedback will be accepted until July 5.
