On June 25, 2018, The Joint Commission published updated imaging standards for accredited hospitals, critical access hospitals, ambulatory care centers, and office-based surgery centers providing fluoroscopy services. Five new standards, which impact facilities performing general and interventional fluoroscopy services, took effect on January 1, 2019 in addition to two more standards that were revised on July 1, 2018, and mandate a broad range of quality and safety activities and practices. Joint Commission accredited facilities will be expected to comply with these new standards in addition to any other applicable state or federal regulations, or applicable ACR or IAC accreditation standards.
The two revised 2018 Elements of Performance (EPs) address the Environment of Care (EC) area. These are:
The five new 2019 Elements of Performance (EPs) that came into effect January 1, 2019 are:
Additionally, if a facility has not previously been required to appoint a Radiation Safety Officer, the following new EP in the Leadership (LD) category also applies:
West Physics has unique expertise and experience to help facilities comply with ALL of these new standards and we have developed a set of services for individual facilities as well as networks to efficiently and quickly address the standards. Whether you require assistance with only those new requirements that specifically require a medical physicist, or you prefer a turn-key integrated solution (to include all required equipment testing, staff training, establishing dose thresholds, RSO services, etc.), West Physics is capable of meeting your needs.
Ensure complete success during your next Joint Commission accreditation survey by selecting a medical and health physics provider that not only has a reputation as the premier provider of medical and health physics services in the nation, but also has intimate knowledge of the new standards and how to effectively and efficiently comply with them. Our physicists look forward to helping you meet the new standards in a simple, stress-free and cost-effective manner.
