2018 Top 10 Findings Hospital and AMC Programs Initial and Triennial Surveys

JCInsight-April-1The top ten frequently scored measurable elements from JCI’s 6th edition Hospital Standards manual, for initial and triennial surveys are listed in the attached document. The score of partially met and not met are included in the count. There were 230 initial and triennial surveys from January 1, 2018 until December 31, 2018. The Facility Management and Safety Chapter (FMS) and the Prevention and Control of Infections Chapter (PCI) had three measurable elements each. The International Patient Safety Goals (IPSG) had two measurable elements. Hospitals and AMCs preparing for survey should assess their compliance with these measurable elements, as they are proving to be challenging for organizations.
