I have recently began pursuing a certificate in Forensic Nursing. I am wanting to sell the importance of this growing specialty to the Director of Patient Care at my workplace. I don't feel that most are educated in what a Forensic Nurse is truly capable of. As a selling point I would like to discuss JCAHO. I have seen in previous posts over the past five years or so people mention JCAHO recommending FNs or nurses who are capable of collective evidence, identifying wounds, etc. I have visited the JCAHO site and searched the heck out of the Internet and am empty handed. Anyone have any legitimate information on proposals or mandates from JCAHO in this area?
