Improve Readiness with Mock Surveys

Most organizations benefit from mock survey interventions 18 to 12 months prior to their expected survey date. Our specialists have up-to-the-minute information on standards, National Patient Safety Goals®, and CMS Conditions of Participation, and are ready to help whether your facility is an academic medical center, critical access hospital, or other health care setting.

Our active partnership with your team relies on “tracing” a patient’s care through your system in ways used by actual surveyors. Direct observation, document reviews, and conversations with caregivers, environmental staff, and C-suite round out the mock survey experience and produce as “real” an experience as possible for learning and preparing.

An in-depth report offers a thorough review with actionable steps to prepare for the upcoming survey.

The use of Joint Commission Resources (JCR) consulting services is not necessary to obtain a Joint Commission Accreditation award, nor does it influence the granting of such awards.
