Program agenda information coming soon.
The following program content was provided by the speaker.
This program is for clinical staff of all levels and all disciplines. The Joint Commission Standards really are about the patient. We follow standards because they are the right thing to do not because TJC says we must. We are preparing for our next patient, not our next survey.
This chapter covers patient care in health care facilities. We will review the standards as they would be surveyed by TJC and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; it is all about documentation. We also will discuss how these standards fit into the SAFER Matrix.
- list challenging standards from the provision of care, treatment and services
- discuss actions that lead to non-compliance
- discuss examples of best practice that lead to compliance
- TJC basics and scoring
- Pain management
- Fall management
- Plans of care
- Providing care
