TJC has nearly 50 years of experience creating standards and accrediting healthcare facilities. With their focus on continuous performance improvement, patient safety, and healthcare quality, the organization is a well-respected authority. While the layout of this manual is delivered in a manner that focuses on healthcare administration and quality managers, the true content is applicable to all healthcare personnel. From the perspective of administration, it guides the facility in preparation for accreditation. From the perspective of other healthcare personnel, it informs practice to provide quality care that ensures patient safety.
