Joint Commission: Additional changes made to elements of performance

By: Judy Mathias

Editor’s Note

The Joint Commission announced on August 15 that additional changes will be made to elements of performance (EPs) in the Nursing and Provision of Care, Treatment, and Services chapters of the accreditation manuals for critical access hospitals and deemed-status hospital programs, effective January 1, 2019.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services requested the additional changes be made so that the EPs will more closely align with language in the Medicare Conditions of Participation.
