Anesthesia Medication Labels for The Joint Commission Compliance
Hospitals routinely administer anesthesia in the form of minor tranquilizers such as Valium and powerful knock-out drugs such as Propofol. In fact, it’s hard to think of a major medical procedure that might not involve a central nervous system depressant that falls under the umbrella of “anesthetic.” To ensure that anesthetic is administered safely, a hospital’s protocols should comply with strict guidelines that The Joint Commission has established.
Accreditation Versus Certification
The Joint Commission is a nonprofit organization that accredits more than 20,000 health care entities and programs in the U.S. According to the American College of Emergency Physicians, hospitals must “[exceed The Joint Commission’s] standards and quality expectations” to be accredited by the organization. Entities that don’t meet qualifications for accreditation have the opportunity to be “certified” by The Joint Commission — a status that requires health care organizations to meet the following three conditions.
- Compliance with consensus-based U.S. health care standards
- Use of accepted medical practice guidelines to provide managed, optimized care
- A well-planned approach for performance measurement and improvement activities
There are several things a hospital must consider when pursuing or maintaining accreditation or certification from The Joint Commission, one of which is the hospital’s protocols for providing anesthesia medication labels. If your hospital needs improvement in this area to receive or preserve accreditation or certification, we can provide anesthesia medication labels that help it exceed The Joint Commission’s “standards and quality expectations” and/or comply with the conditions listed above.
