New and Revised Requirements for Resuscitation
Effective January 1, 2022, The Joint Commission approved new and revised requirements for resuscitation for hospitals and critical care hospitals. The new and revised requirements aim to strengthen resuscitation and post-resuscitation care processes by reducing unnecessary variations in practice and requiring hospitals to adopt a more proactive internal review of data to seek continuous learning improvements in order to maximize patient survival with the best possible neurological outcomes. PC.02.01.11 EPs 2 and 5 also relate to resuscitation, but these EPs were not revised and are not included in the reports below.
