Updates to the Nursing Care Center Post–Acute Care Add-on Certification
Effective July 1, 2024, The Joint Commission approved revisions to its Post–Acute Care Certification for nursing care centers (NCCs). The new and revised requirements are designed to improve the safety and quality of care for patients or residents receiving post–acute care in Joint Commission–accredited NCCs. The updates reflect the most recent clinical practice guidelines from the American Medical Directors Association’s Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine; feedback from Joint Commission–accredited NCCs, including those with and without Post–Acute Care certification; and recommendations from subject matter experts in rehabilitation and long-term care.
