Joint Commission launches webpage covering four high-risk areas

By: Judy Mathias

Editor’s Note

The Joint Commission on December 19 launched a webpage that covers four high-risk areas that surveyors evaluate.

The “4-1-1 on Survey Enhancements” interactive page provides resources for:

  • Sterile medication compounding
  • Suicide prevention
  • High-level disinfection and sterilization
  • Hemodialysis.

The Joint Commission enhanced its evaluation of these high risk areas in 2018 and created the 4-1-1 on Survey Enhancements series to help healthcare organizations prepare for these enhancements, reduce risk, and prevent adverse events.
