Respiratory Therapy – Are You Ready?

The Joint Commission Pre-Publication Standards that were scheduled to take effect July 1, 2020 have been extended to September 13, 2020 per a TJC Representative. Please note they contain a significant change within HR 01.01.01 EP 1 for Respiratory Therapy.

It specifically states: “For hospitals that use Joint Commission accreditation for deemed status purposes: Staff qualified to perform specific respiratory care procedures and the amount of supervision required to carry out the specific procedures is designated in writing.”  This Element of Performance requires a written document or policy that defines the procedure and the amount of supervision required.  Are you Ready?
