Joint Commission Surveys and Reviews Resume in June

May 28, 2020

The Joint Commission will begin resuming regular surveys and reviews in June. Account executives will begin to contact organizations due for a survey to assess the impact that the coronavirus pandemic had on their operations and their current state. The Joint Commission is reviewing a variety of factors and criteria for determining where and which organizations will be surveyed, including identifying and then prioritizing low-risk areas in which it can go in safely to survey. The Joint Commission also says the survey process will look somewhat different, as it will need to employ physical distancing practices to ensure the safety of all parties.
