Product Description

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 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 standards address additional requirements for human subjects research and medical professional education.

Within each section, standards are separated into chapters. Each standard includes an intent statement, which describes the rationale for the standard, and measurable elements, which are the specific requirements of the standard. In addition to the standards chapters, the Accreditation Participation Requirements, an introduction, the eligibility requirements, a summary of key accreditation policies, a glossary, and an index are included. 

Translations of the 6th edition hospital standards are available as a PDF only. The Chinese translation can be found by clicking the link above. For a list of other available translations, please select the drop-down menu next to “Language”.
