Public Notice: The Joint Commission
The Joint Commission can, at any point in time, survey HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital. The purpose of the survey is to evaluate the organization's compliance with nationally established Joint Commission standards. The survey results will be used to determine whether, and the conditions under which accreditation should be awarded the organization.
The Joint Commission standards deal with organizational quality of care issues and the safety of the environment in which care is provided. Anyone believing that he or she has pertinent and valid information about such matters may request a Public Information Interview with The Joint Commission's field representatives at the time of the survey. Information presented at the interview will be carefully evaluated for relevance to the accreditation process. Requests for a Public Information Interview must be made in writing and should be sent to The Joint Commission. The request must also indicate the nature of the information to be provided at the interview.
The Joint Commission will acknowledge such requests in writing or by telephone and will inform the organization of the request for any interview.
