    I am trying to research the correct answers to the following questions. Any help is much aprreciated. Thanks
    1.State survey's and JCAHO are two different things, right? How often are state surveys done and how often do you go for JCAHO accrediatation, yearly? is that the norm. If you already have JCAHO accreditation can you be exempted from State surveys?
    2. What do you mean by "category of accreditation" and example if possible.
    3.What is an "outcome measure instrument" and an example if possible.
    4. How do you evaluate client outcomes?
    5. Give an example of a deficiency.
    Thanks again...

    Thanks for your help. I have gone thru all these websites and still have some specific questions. But that is okey. I will figure this one out by myself. I just hope we donot treat our upcoming nurses like this. Let's try to help them out as much as we can. One day they will be the one taking care of us. Thanks. Signing off.
