Joint Commission Survey Update

The Joint Commission (TJC) held the Brigham’s triennial hospital survey the first week of December. During the visit, surveyors found opportunities for improvement that required written evidence of standard compliance to be submitted to TJC within 60 days. The Brigham has been notified that TJC accepted the hospital’s evidence of standard compliance, meaning that the Brigham remains fully accredited and the survey activity is now complete. Faculty and staff must continue to monitor our compliance of TJC survey observations. Learn more.
