From The Joint Commission:
Chuck Mowll, executive vice president of Business Development, Government and External Relations, and Robert Wise, M.D., vice president of the Division of Standards and Survey Methods, will discuss revised medical staff bylaws standard MS.01.01.01 during a free one hour telephone conference call for Joint Commission-accredited hospitals and critical access hospitals on Thursday, April 22, at 11 a.m. P.T. / noon M.T. / 1 p.m. C.T. / 2 p.m. E.T.
MS.01.01.01, formerly known as MS.1.20, is designed to contribute to patient safety and quality of care through the support of a well-functioning, positive relationship between a hospital’s medical staff and governing body. The revisions are based on the unanimous recommendations of an 18-member expert task force.
The speakers will discuss:
· Why the standard changed
· How the standard impacts quality and safety of patient care
· What requirements are changing
· When these changes take effect
