Free White Paper Details Hospital Strategies for Meeting Joint Commission Compliance Requirements in the Environment of Care
Date:11/13/2007

NEWTON, MASS., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- A free white paper is now available to help hospitals prepare for new Joint Commission (formerly JCAHO) accreditation requirements and unannounced surveys at: http://www.eheinc.com/jcaho.htm.

Titled "Continuous Joint Commission Compliance: Responding to the 2006 Unannounced Survey Policy within the Environment of Care'' and authored by EH&E, a Newton, Mass. based environmental engineering and consulting firm, the white paper reviews the common barriers to continuous compliance that EH&E staff encountered at several hospitals and the innovative solutions implemented to address them.

"Hospitals are well aware of the high level of activity on all fronts that precedes a scheduled Joint Commission audit. With the advent of unannounced surveys, activities such as facility inspections, document reviews, and educational programs now have to be repeated often," said Jack McCarthy, President and co-founder of EH&E. "Healthcare organizations nationwide are trying to cope with implementing these resource-intensive preparations on an ongoing basis without potentially compromising patient care."

Drawing on the direct experience of EH&E personnel managing the Environment of Care program at several large healthcare institutions, this white paper offers insight into common areas of vulnerability and offers practical ideas for cost-effective solutions. The paper will be interesting and informative to all those faced with meeting the latest challenge of unannounced surveys, including hospital administrators, safety officers, and laboratory personnel.

For more information on how to address continuous compliance requirements, download the free white paper at: http://www.eheinc.com/jcaho.htm or contact EH&E directly at 1-800-825-5343.
