Patient safety, quality and Joint Commission compliance are always top priorities for hospitals. The Covid-19 pandemic has added many new challenges to these efforts. Join us for this program where we’ll hear an update directly from Joint Commission leaders about what to expect with surveys due to Covid-19- such as allowance or exceptions to standards, how surveys are performed in high risk areas, most cited standards, and key areas of focus. Of particular concern is infection prevention and we will have an expert in this area talk about infection prevention strategies to incorporate during the pandemic. We will also feature local hospital leaders sharing their experiences and tactics within their hospitals in this difficult time.
