Program summary:

Environment of Care™
and Life Safety compliance issues account for Joint
Commission and CMS non-compliance rates from 30-50
percent in the hospital setting. The main
non-compliance areas are:

  • Failure to identify issues.
  • Failure to repair identified issues in a timely manner.
  • Failure to implement Interim Life Safety Measures (ILSM’s) related to these issues.
  • Inadequate, incomplete or missing documentation.

This program will focus on common pitfalls and
proactive solutions gleaned from work with hundreds
of hospitals across the country.
