okay guys, we've all been through it before....JCAHO is here at my hospital this week...fun fun fun.
Anyway, why is it the administration waits until a month or so before they are scheduled to come to try to cram all this new "stuff" down your throats? It is also at this time they decide to change around policies or do away with some.
Our hospital depends on a good JCAHO survey due to our high influx of medicaid/medicare patients...to change around a bunch of things and produce new things seems counter-productive to me. They should do this in the interim. Don't you think?
We had DFS come see us this past year also due to a patient complaint. So JCAHO will be definately hunting for things!
Know what I mean?
What do you guys go through when they come? What do your facilities do to help you out or make it worse?
I personally can't wait until they are GONE!!!!!
