Some of the perennially most challenging Joint Commission standards for all health care organizations are Environment of Care, Emergency Management, and Life Safety. This brand-new collection of checklists from JCR will help you to manage and improve your compliance with the EC, EM, and LS standards across health care settings. Our customers have told us that they rely on checklists to coordinate compliance. Indeed, checklists are proven improvement tools, and the checklists in this collection focus on the actual requirement language as well as best practices. Use them "as is," or download and customize the digital versions to meet your own needs and initiatives. They are succinct, focused, and very practical and help you to easily assess and track your compliance.

The checklists cover a range of topics and are based on Joint Commission standards, NFPA codes, guidelines, consensus documents, and other trustworthy expert sources. Count on these checklists to serve as reminders and refreshers for all facility safety and management staff. Topics include EC risk management, EC management plans, hazardous materials and waste, security, fire safety and protection, medical equipment, and utility systems, building design and construction, and emergency preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery.
