I work in the Emergency Department and we just had our JCAHO inspection and we passed with no problem. However, they said they wouldn't write us up this year. But our emesis bag dispensers in the hallway stick out 6 1/2 inches.... apparently the new standard is 4 1/2 inches.
So.... what are you using to hold your emesis bags.
Oh by the way , this is in the ER hallways.
There is no CMS standard on how far any kind of dispenser can stick out from the wall, that doesn't mean that Joint Commission surveyors won't claim there are various made-up standards that the facility isn't meeting, this is why the Joint Commission is quickly loosing business to other more competent survey organizations.
Aka drink zones for staff, etc, etc
