Survey On the Radar: Ligature and Self Harm Update

By June 6, 2018C&A Blog

The Joint Commission will start citing ligature and self-harm deficiencies under the Patient’s Rights Condition of Participation effective July 1, 2018.  This change is based upon TJC consultation with CMS. Surveyors will discontinue citing these deficiencies in the Environment of Care Condition of Participation but will continue to cite these under EC 02.06.01 EP 1 but will also be cross tagging the findings to the Patient Rights Condition of Participation at 482.13 when ligature/self-harm deficiencies are identified.
