2021 Environment of Care Essentials

View

Are you a facility manager or emergency management coordinator who only needs Joint Commission standards that apply to the physical environment or emergency planning not the whole manual? Or, do you work in a health care system or as a vendor and need to accurately align compliance efforts across hospital, ambulatory surgery centers, outpatient behavioral clinics, or other settings of care?

Make standards compliance and preparing for survey easier with 2021 Environment of Care® Essentials for Health Care. This indispensable spiral-bound or PDF volume bundles the environment of care (EC), emergency management (EM), and life safety (LS) standards and elements of performance (EPs) for all settings in one convenient reference so the information you need is always right at your fingertips. Equipment management (EQ) standards, which appear only in the Comprehensive Accreditation Manual for Home Care, are also included.

A recently redesigned matrix will help you streamline compliance efforts in your facility and your health care system, allowing you to quickly cross-reference EC, EM, and LS requirements across settings. You can see similarities and differences at a glance. A simple matrix included at each requirement clearly identifies (with an x ) whether the requirement applies in each of the eight Joint Commission accreditation programs. Bracketed wording indicates how and where wording varies slightly across programs. Conversely, if standards, EPs, or notes vary greatly, abbreviations appear in brackets after that text noting it applies only to the programs listed, for example, ambulatory care (AHC), critical access hospitals (CAH), and hospitals (HAP).

Key Topics

  • Essential information for complying with EC requirements with regard to safety, security, hazardous materials and waste, medical equipment and utility systems, and fire safety
  • Complete Emergency Operations Plan/Emergency Management Plan requirements
  • Unabridged LS management requirements aligned with the 2012 Life Safety Code®*

Key Features

  • All EC, EM, and LS standards and EPs effective January 1, 2021

  • Glossary terms with clear, straightforward definitions

Standards: EC, EM, and LS (across all settings) and EQ (home care only)

The Latino Patient provides an in-depth exploration of Latino diversity, relevant cultural values, health status, beliefs, and practices; and effective communication strategies. The author has developed an original, practice-oriented model that leads the reader from greeting the patient to ultimately negotiating treatment. The book is hands-on and provides numerous vignettes gleaned from the authors experience. The Latino Patient should be high-priority reading for physicians, nurses, physicians assistants, therapists, clinical psychologists, social workers and other clinicians.

Root Cause Analysis in Health Care

View

According to World Health Organization statistics, adverse events in health care affect 1 in 300 patients, resulting in tragedy for patients and their families and taxing an already overburdened health care system. To address and prevent reoccurrences of such errors, The Joint Commission s Sentinel Event Policy requires accredited health care organizations to identify and examine the system failures or defects that contributed to the adverse or sentinel event. Root cause analysis (RCA) provides a systematic approach to identifying these contributing factors. And in the interest of identifying potential safety problems before they occur, proactive risk assessment, of which one type is failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA), uses a prospective approach to improve the likelihood of favorable outcomes and to prevent harm to patients.

Root Cause Analysis in Health Care: A Joint Commission Guide to Analysis and Corrective Action of Sentinel and Adverse Events will take readers step by step through the process of conducting RCA in their organizations. It will also offer strategies and suggestions for implementing FMEA. Featuring a newly streamlined, approachable design, this 7th edition of our best-selling Root Cause Analysis in Health Care will guide health care organizations through the Joint Commission requirements, outlining steps to prevent sentinel events such as medication errors, patient suicide, wrong-site surgery, patient elopement, and more. Refreshed tools and examples will help organizations collect the data they need and demonstrate how to use that data to learn from previous experience.

Key Topics

  • Overview of root cause analysis and how it is used as a response to a sentinel event
  • Overview of proactive risk assessment and how it is used to prevent process and product problems before they occur
  • Addressing sentinel events and adverse events in policy and practice
  • Preparing for a root cause analysis
  • Conducting root cause analysis
  • Determining proximate and root causes
  • Designing and implementing a corrective action plan for improvement

Key Features

  • A comprehensive four-phase root cause analysis framework that links to The Joint Commission s 21-Step Framework for a Root Cause Analysis
  • Downloadable and adaptable checklists and worksheets for applying the framework
  • Tools to Try (many of which are downloadable and adaptable) that help users implement root cause analysis in their organizations
  • A downloadable and editable version of The Joint Commission s Framework for a Root Cause Analysis and Corrective Action Plan
  • Information about FMEA

The Joint Commission Guide to Risk

This first\-ever, comprehensive guide to Joint Commission―required risk assessments was created specifically at customer request. Risk assessment was the #1 need identified by JCR customers in a recent market research study.

Of course, Joint Commission standards are all about risk assessment―but this book explains which particular standards necessitate a formal risk assessment from your organization.

Not only will this book help you to comply with Joint Commission requirements for risk assessment, but more importantly, it will help you to ensure that you are providing the safest, high\-quality care possible for your patients and individuals served.
