Simply complying with The Joint Commission Environment of Care standard is the bare minimum for how facilities managers should care for their hospitals. Go beyond simple compliance and ace your survey by excelling in four complex areas. Prepare for the documentation section of your survey, use the standards to create a full emergency power program and show compliance with the 96-hour rule, view the current methods for a collaborative and, interdisciplinary pressure, temperature, and humidity monitoring process, and create a comprehensive water management program to comply with ASHRAE 188. Creating comprehensive programs within the Environment of Care can show that a facility is managing their equipment well and highlights the hard work that the facilities teams do every day.
- Describe how to successfully prepare for and navigate the documentation review portion of a survey.
- Assess your current emergency power program and identify gaps and areas of improvement.
- Explain the correct procedures for monitoring room pressurization, temperature, and humidity in required areas.
- Create a comprehensive water management program to combat waterborne pathogens.
