OVERVIEW:

Though the Joint Commission (TJC) surveyors review all aspects of a facility during a review, they do target specific areas involving patient care. For 2022, there is a focus on workplace violence, infection prevention and control, emergency management, and Life Safety. Much of what TJC requires for certification and deemed status follow the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Conditions of Participation. Hospitals who receive deemed status through TJC are not required to have a certification survey by CMS to participate in Medicare reimbursement. Every hospital that accepts Medicare and Medicaid must comply with the CMS discharge planning guidelines, and these standards must be followed for all patients.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

  • Recall that TJC recent standards require workplace violence issues to be reported to the Governing Board.
  • Describe the changes to the Life Safety Code and requirements for sprinkler heads.
  • Recite that TJC requires hospitals to provide patients with written advance directives information on admission.
  • Explain that TJC states that patients and families have a right to have a complaint reviewed in a timely manner.
