Joint Commission: Six EPs deleted for Critical Access Hospitals

Later this year The Joint Commission will delete six elements of performance (EPs) from the Distinct Part Unit (DPU) standards for Critical Access Hospitals. The accreditor says this will streamline the standards and the changes go into effect on September 24, 2017.

The deleted EPs are from the Medical Staff, Leadership, and Rights and Responsibilities of the Individual chapters. You can read all six standards at the Joint Commission website. Those with questions can contact Laura Smith, MA, Joint Commission project director at lsmith@jointcommission.org.
