Continuous compliance starts with staff who know what The Joint Commission requires. The 2021 Comprehensive Accreditation Manual for Laboratory and Point-of-Care Testing (CAMLAB) provides the key information your organization needs to power performance improvement and maintain continuous standards compliance. It features the official Joint Commission standards, National Patient Safety Goals, and other accreditation requirements.
The CAMLAB allows you to find exactly what you need for standards compliance or survey readiness when you need it. Inside you will find descriptions of the survey and decision process, questions to prompt discussion in your organization about compliance with the standards, checklists of the elements of performance that require written documentation, and action planning worksheets to address any issues of noncompliance.
It is lean and light, making it a perfect on-the-go reference. Keep it handy in meetings, during orientation and training, and as a practical overview of the Joint Commission’s accreditation requirements for everyone in your organization, from staff to leaders. Then, get ready to power performance improvement and excellence in your laboratory services!
"If you are accredited by TJC, this is a no brainer. Get this manual and use it often."
