Well, they're coming this August. This will be my first JCAHO experience as a nurse.
My question is about those cute name signs that we post on the beds with the baby's first name on it. Are those JCAHO-approved? Or does it violate the no-visible-names rule? One could argue that it only has the first name on it so maybe it should be okay, but JCAHO's rules are pretty picky about names being visible. And what if it was actually the parents that put the sign up? Sometimes parents even make a sign that displays the baby's last name too.
I assume that in the interest of abiding by the rules we will just take all signs down temporarily, but I'm still wondering.
