Joint Commission deletes standards during third phase of EP review

On April 25, The Joint Commission announced it had completed the third phase of its Element of Performance (EP) review project. Phase three looked at standards from seven Joint Commission programs, deleting those deemed duplicative or have become standard operating procedure.

It should be noted that what was deleted varies based on each program. For example, an EP deleted for the hospital program might still exist for home care. Chapters affected include Environment of Care and Infection Prevention and Control.

Below are links to the various prepublication standards, which are effective July 1, 2017.
