1. I didn't see a category for Addiction or Chemical Dependency but maybe someone can help me. I'm a Nurse Manager of an inpatient Chemical Dependency Unit and in the process of re-writing evaluations to reflect new JCAHO guidelines. They will now be called orientation and annual competencies/responsibilities. I'd appreciate ANY ideas, tips, etc., etc.! Thanks Again!

    I recently had the "joy" of developing a competency for JCAHO as well as an AGE BASED COMPETENCY (something JCAHO is asking for) for AODA and MENTAL HEALTH. So far so good. JCAHO liked it as well.

    OUR hospital as a whole system changed their employee evals 2 years ago to coincide with JCAHO requirements as well. It is much easier too.
