We are due our joint commission visit any day. Would anyone be willing to share what the focus was specifically to the NICU during your joint commission survey?

The primary focus I have seen over the last few weeks revolves around Standards of Care, breast milk administration and infant security. 

Standards of Care: make sure staff can speak to the SOC. TJC is looking at documentation and practice and making sure nurses are following the SOC policy. 

Breast Milk Administration: make sure staff are following the administration policy and using the safe guards in place. 

Infant Security: they are making sure the infant security policy is being followed. Be prepared for them to dive into a chart of two.

If you don’t know the answer, do not panic. Just say, “I know where to find the answer” which is good enough. And you do know, you would either look it up on your hospitals intranet or ask your charge nurse.
