Public Notice

The Joint Commission will be conducting unannounced triennial accreditation surveys of all VHA facilities. In addition, a one-day unannounced survey could occur

at any time. The purpose of these surveys will be to evaluate each organization's compliance with nationally established Joint Commission standards. The survey results will be used to determine whether, and the conditions under which, accreditation should be awarded the organization. Joint Commission standards deal with organization quality, safety-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 contact The Joint Commission as follows:

Office of Quality Monitoring

Joint Commission

One Renaissance Boulevard

Oakbrook Terrace, IL 60181

Phone:

800-994-6610

Email:

complaint@jointcommission.org

VHA facilities will not take any disciplinary or retaliatory action because a patient reports safety or quality of care concerns to the Joint Commission.

(This notice is posted in accordance with the Joint Commission's accreditation participation requirements.)
