The Joint Commission Comprehensive Stroke Center Recertfication Survey

June 13, 2016  //  FOUND IN: News

Please be advised that the Joint Commission is onsite today and tomorrow for a scheduled review of the Comprehensive Stroke Center (CSC) program at UMHS. This is the recertification of the CSC for cerebrovascular care.

There will be two review teams onsite utilizing patient tracer methodology, which includes interviewing faculty and staff that interact with stroke patients and reviewing educational competencies (checking blue folders for staff). 

This review is more encompassing than prior disease-specific reviews and the teams will be throughout the hospital.  Please prepare your respective areas/units per UMHS and Joint Commission standards.

For further information, please contact the Operations Director for the CSC, Jenevra Foley at
