JCAHO Survey: Public Information Notice

The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) conducts an accreditation survey of the NIH Clinical Center every three years.

The purpose of the survey is to evaluate the organization's compliance with nationally established Joint Commission standards. The survey results will be used to determine whether, and the conditions under which, accreditation should be awarded the organization. Joint Commission standards deal with organizational quality of care issues and the safety of the environment in which care is provided.

Anyone believing that he or she has pertinent and valid information about such matters should notify JCAHO. Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, Division of Accreditation Operations, Operations Office of Quality Monitoring, Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, One Renaissance Boulevard, Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois 60181.
