This first-ever, comprehensive guide to Joint Commission—required risk assessments was created specifically at customer request. Risk assessment was the #1 need identified by JCR customers in a recent market research study.
This book includes a list of all Joint Commission standards across all health care settings that specifically require a risk assessment—and then goes on to explain and demonstrate how to comply with those risk assessment requirements. The book offers sample risk assessments, tools, mock tracers, checklists, and other strategies to help your organization to comply with those Joint Commission standards requiring risk assessment. Of course, Joint Commission standards are all about risk assessment—but this book explains which particular standards necessitate a formal risk assessment from your organization.
Specific topics covered include infection prevention and control, emergency management, environment of care, leadership, and more—all very timely and relevant in light of the current pandemic. Not only will this book help you to comply with Joint Commission requirements for risk assessment, but more importantly, it will help you to ensure that you are providing the safest, high-quality care possible for your patients and individuals served.
