Policies and Procedures for Hospitals is a collection of more than 100 policies and procedures (P&Ps) for hospitals and academic medical centers. The P&Ps are organized by subject matter, and each one can be downloaded and adapted to suit the needs of your organization. The P&Ps are correlated to the requirements for Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation for hospitals; however, they can also be adapted by non-accredited international hospitals and academic medical centers.
