Joint Commission Lists Most Challenging Standards of 2010

August 19, 2010 at 3:16 pm Leave a comment

The August Joint Commission Newsletter online presents the  5 Most Non-compliant Standards from the first half of 2010.

For Hospitals it was:

62% — RC.01.01.01 — Maintains complete and accurate medical records for each patient

50% — LS.02.01.20 — Maintains the integrity of the means of egress

44% — LS.02.01.10 — Building and fire protection features are designed and maintained to minimize the effects of fire, smoke, and heat.

38% — ED.02.03.05 — Maintains fire safety equipment and fire safety building features

37% — LS.02.01.20 — Provides and maintains building features to protect individuals from the hazards of fire and smoke.

It’s interesting that fire and physical safety issues outpace any direct care concerns.   Do you read this to say that US hospitals generally meet their primary goal — patient care?  And with that in place, they can also address the less-likely risks to patients?
