Standards BoosterPaks™

A Quality Improvement Tool

December 7, 2015

New Standards BoosterPak™ now available - High-Level Disinfection (HLD) and Sterilization 

What are the Standards BoosterPaks™?

A Standards BoosterPakTM is a searchable document intended to provide detailed information about a single standard or topic area that has been associated with a high volume of inquiries or non-compliance scores in the health care field.  The BoosterPak concept was developed as one method to address the issue of consistency of standards interpretation. 

BoosterPaks are intended for accredited organizations and staff within the Joint Commission enterprise only to improve the understanding and consistency of standard interpretation.

BoosterPaks are available to Joint Commission accredited and certified organizations on the secure Joint Commission Connect Extranet.
