Reminder: SAFER Matrix now in effect

The Joint Commission is now using its SAFER Matrix with all accredited organizations. The matrix replaces the old scoring method of categorizing risk using “A” and “C” rankings.

The SAFER matrix is a three-by-three grid labeling the level of risk and harm observed for a standard. The approach is meant to help organizations prioritize and focus their efforts on the direst areas of risk.
