Healthcare Assignment – Joint Commission Standards
Your hospital organization wants to do a comprehensive review of where they are with the Joint
Commission standards and what work needs to be done to meet those standards. The
organization has established a Lead Team to coordinate the work. Using the Joint Commission
accreditation manual that you can access using course reserves, find the table of contents listing
accreditation requirements. You will be putting together a team to work on ensuring that your
organization is meeting one of the standards. Review the list of requirements in the table of
contents and select one chapter for your “team” to work on. (Do not select Accreditation
Participation Requirements (APR) or Waived Testing (WT)). Review the standard and the
“elements of performance” for the chapter that you have selected and provide the following:
Select ten (10) elements of performance in your selected chapter.
Who are your team members? (use a functional title)
Describe how you will divide the work for your team.
Describe what your team deliverables will be to the organization’s lead team.
In a written document, provide the standard, the elements of performance and how your team
will demonstrate meeting that element.
In your submission, have an introduction, then enumerate the concepts (1-5) with your answers,
and finalize with a conclusion. As always, have at least two cited sources.
