EVERY HOSPITAL, USA – Hospital administrators have finally cracked the secret to passing the highly anticipated Joint Commission inspections. For decades, the Joint Commission or previously called JACHO, but don’t EVER call them that now, had inspections that would puzzle even the finest US hospitals. Now there is a secret out to pass these inspections and the secret just might surprise you.
Rachel Gillian, a senior hospital administrator at Bayside Medical Hospital had this to say. “For years, hospitals have been struggling on how to deal with and pass the JC inspections. We adopted a new strategy called Operation Temporary Change. For the short period of time that the inspectors were here, we would change absolutely everything to meet standards. It really threw the hospital for a loop, so after the inspectors left, we would immediately switch back to our old system in order to actually treat patients in a timely manner.”
To date, Operation Temporary Change is being implemented in hospitals across the country with fantastic success. Pass rate is near 100% and disruption in patient care only lasts 2-3 days during the inspection.
“We found that telling JC that they are so smart and that we love their visits is the icing on the cake to pass these inspections. They love hearing that stuff,” said Gillian.
One positive benefit of the JC visits are that they do provide good comradery with the hospital employees. “It gives employees something to laugh about together. You wouldn’t believe how many sarcastic jokes are made during this short time period,” said Gillian. “It’s almost like a stand-up comedy act.”
Joint Commission refused to comment, and later was overheard crying in a bathroom stall, upon hearing of this breaking news report.
