Joint Commission revises standards to align with CMS requirements

Editor's Note

The Joint Commission announced July 1 that it has made two sets of standards changes for deemed-status hospitals and critical access hospitals.

The first set of changes, which went into effect July 1, was made in response to hospital deeming renewal applications with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

The second set, which will go into effect September 13, are being made to further revise requirements for hospitals and critical access hospitals to align with CMS final rules on Burden Reduction and Discharge Planning.
