Isi artikelEarlier this year, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations announced an increased focus on patient safety concerns within the hospital setting. By July 1, 2001, hospitals undergoing accreditation surveys needed to comply with standards relative to medical errors and informing patients when the potential of being harmed by treatment has occurred. This new rule added an increased emphasis on this area, and as standards are emphasized within one provider setting, there usually follows a greater scrutiny of this area in all provider settings. These new hospital standards to improve patient safety, in addition to medication and/or health care error reduction, expand this important area to encompass security, infection control, equipment safety, as well as reporting systems and leadership roles in this important aspect of care.
