Just wanted to share this posting from Bud Pate, REHS, Vice President of Content and Development for The Greeley Company. Bud is currently attending Executive Briefings in Los Angeles.
Although there may be some errors, the “D”s [indicating that documentation is required] for the new standards will remain as written in the current version of the manual according to Dr. Robert Wise, Vice President for the Division of Standards and Survey Methods for the Joint Commission. Although he acknowledges that there may be errors, Dr. Wise committed that, until they change, documentation is not required unless there is a Circle D logo in the accreditation manual.
Stay tuned for more.
Matt Phillion, Senior Managing Editor of Briefings on The Joint Commission, will be reporting back from the New York Executive Briefings.
