You can have a safe, supportive environment for patients and staff and provide quality care, but there’s no way to predict an emergency.
Whether you’re focused on specific areas like vulnerabilities to hazards, preparing for disasters, fire prevention or your overall emergency management program, being prepared and having a plan helps ensure your facility can operate safely during a crisis.
Why Work with Joint Commission Resources
The past few years have taught us how important it is to be prepared for an emergency — from the pandemic to natural disasters to unprecedented gun violence.
Maintaining readiness may not be simple, but it is much harder without planning and preparation. The good news is JCR is here to help.
Why work with us?
Our advisory solutions can assist your organization at any phase of its emergency management plan.
Our experts are engineers, physicians, infection preventionists, nurses, and former CMS surveyors.
Custom Tools and Trainings
Whatever your needs, our team can support you long-term, short-term or ad hoc — from accreditation prep to risk reduction.
We have many resources to support Emergency Management programs and compliance.
Emergency Management Advisory Services
We can help you and your leaders with Joint Commission survey preparation*, but we also offer more support when it comes to emergency management, including:
Emergency management program analysis
Hazard Vulnerability Analysis (HVA)
Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP)
Mitigating, Preparing for, Responding to, and Recovering from a Disaster
*The use of Joint Commission Resources consultative technical or advisory services is not necessary to obtain a Joint Commission Accreditation award, nor does it influence the granting of such awards.
Education Events and Resources
Aiming to make continued learning as easy and beneficial as possible, we host live, virtual and on-demand conferences throughout the year, as well as provide seminars, recordings, digital resources and online courses.
We host an Emergency Management Conference each year and are working to provide additional educational opportunities, both virtual and in-person.
