The Joint Commission Public Notice
The Joint Commission will conduct an unannounced accreditation survey at Rogers Memorial Hospital.
The purpose of these surveys will be 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, an accreditation should be awarded to 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. The request must
also indicate the nature of the information to be provided at the
interview. Such written submitted requests should be addressed to:
Division of Accreditation Operations
Office of Quality and Patient Safety
The Joint Commission
One Renaissance Boulevard
Oakbrook Terrace, IL 60181
Or fax your request to 630.792.5636
Or e-mail your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
Or call the Joint Commission directly at 800-994-6610
The Joint Commission will acknowledge such requests
in writing, or by telephone, and will inform Rogers Memorial Hospital of
the request for an interview. Rogers Memorial Hospital will, in turn,
notify the interviewee of the date, time and place of the meeting.
This notice is posted in accordance with the Joint
Commission's requirements and may not be removed before the survey is
completed. Date posted: 3/28/2006
