Joint Commission and Navy Medical Inspector General to visit NHCC

By Naval Health Clinic Charleston Public Affairs

The Joint Commission and the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery Medical Inspector General will conduct a joint accreditation survey of Naval Health Clinic Charleston from August 4 - 6, 2015. 

The purpose of the survey will be to evaluate the organization's compliance with nationally established Joint Commission and United States Navy 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 organizational quality 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 request a public information interview with the Joint Commission's field representatives or the BUMED IG at the time of the survey. Information presented at the interview will be carefully evaluated for relevance to the accreditation process.

Patients and staff members may contact a Joint Commission surveyor during the Joint Commission Survey and request a public information interview via email at www.jointcommision.org/, or in person, on the 2nd deck in room 2096.

Concerns may also be brought to the attention of the Medical Inspector General by calling the MEDINSGEN Hotline at 1-800-637-6175, DSN 295-9019 or via email at: NavyMEDIGHotline@med.navy.mil.

This notice is posted in accordance with the Joint Commission and MEDINSGEN
requirements and may not be removed before the survey is completed.
