The Joint Commission conducts an accreditation survey of Barnes-Jewish Hospital. The purpose of the survey is to evaluate the organization's compliance with nationally established Joint Commission standards. The survey results are used to determine whether -- and the conditions under which -- accreditation should be awarded to Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
Joint Commission standards deal with organization and safety quality-of-care issues and the safety of the environment in which care is provided.
As a patient, family member, community representative or employee of Barnes-Jewish Hospital you have the right to notify The Joint Commission regarding any concern about the quality of care provided, safety of care provided, or safety of the environment in which care is provided. Anyone believing that he or she has pertinent and valid information about such matters should notify The Joint Commission.
