Hi, I have 2 of my classmate posts. I need you to respond to each one separately. , one source at least for each one of them.
- Is being Joint Commission compliant enough to be able to prepare, respond and recover from a disaster? Explain your answer.
- Review the JC Lessons Learned. What
learned resonated with you? Why?
this is the first post from my calssmate FUNYEES need to
Joint Commission Complaints
This Joint Commission recognition helps to strengthen the oversight of
However, the Joint Commission does not address personal payment disputes and billing issues. Moreover, it lacks jurisdiction for handling problems such as individual clinical management of a patient and labor relation. Therefore, it is not the right forum to address the clinical management of a person (Schmaltz et al., 2011). The Joint Commission complaint procedure encourages people to raise issues of concern that may hinder their efficiency.
According to the lesson learned, depending on the magnitude of the matter raised, the Joint Commission makes various decisions like the on-site evaluation to determine defecation among healthcare programs or facilities (Schyve, 2007). The Commission uses predetermined objective criteria in guiding its analysis and disposition of the quality of medical practice. Additionally, other information obtained concerning the Joint Commission accreditation

Is being Joint Commission compliant enough to be able to prepare, respond and recover from a disaster? Explain your answer.
The mission of the Joint Commission is to continuously improve the safety and the quality of care provided to the public. The current Joint Commission accreditation focus areas are medication management, infection control, emergency preparedness and data usage for improvement. The benefit of that accreditation in the level of disaster is, improve risk management and risk reduction, and to prepare facilities for possible disaster. Also, the Joint Commission issues a new Quick Safety Advisory that provides healthcare organization with risks factors, safety recommendations, and research on how to continue operation during an emergency. The continuity of operation plan (COOP) help the organizations with the resilience needed to prepare, respond, recover, and restore patient care services following a disaster. I think that hospitals and healthcare organization should improve their prepare, respond, and recovery from different resource and in a different way not only being Joint Commission compliant. For example, developing regular drill and exercise such tabletop exercise.
Review the JC Lessons Learned. What
The Joint Commission Lessons Learned emphasized several essential areas to consider in disaster preparedness and planning. The one lesson learned that resonated with me was “ Divert spontaneous volunteers (even clinical) from ED to avoid congestion during trauma response.” (The Joint Commission, 2016). Spontaneous volunteers can cause serious issues during a disaster they are not managed correctly. In a disaster, volunteers are often needed to cover several areas such as aid victims, rebuild communities, help to educate the public and prepare for future disaster. However, volunteers should be affiliated with specific organizations before the disaster. This will bring several benefits to volunteer such training, fill vital roles, and manage the event effectively. On the other hand, volunteers can cause an issue if they distract disaster response and recovery efforts.
