Product Description

Joint Commission International Accreditation Standards for Hospitals, 6th Edition, provides the basis for accreditation of hospitals throughout the world. Joint Commission International (JCI) standards define the performance expectations, structures, and functions that must be in place for a hospital to be accredited by JCI. The effective date of the 6th Edition is 1 July 2017, which means all surveys that begin on or after this date will be surveyed under the 6th Edition. 
 
The standards are divided into two main sections: 1) patient-centered care and 2) health care organization management. In addition, two chapters are included for hospitals that meet eligibility criteria for academic medical center accreditation—these address additional requirements for human subjects research and medical professional education.
 
Each standard includes an intent statement, which describes the rationale for the standard, and measurable elements, which are the specific requirements of the standard.
 
JCI will publish translated versions of the 6th edition hospital standards throughout the course of 2017. Translations are planned for Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Italian and Hebrew. Other languages are under consideration and will be announced as they become available. Translations of the 6th edition manual will be available as an electronic PDF only.
 
In addition to the standards, an introduction, the eligibility requirements, a summary of key accreditation policies, a glossary, and an index are included.

  • Develop and implement a program for antibiotic stewardship
