TJC launches into 2022 with new EM standards, other changes

The Joint Commission (TJC) ended the year with a flurry of reminders about new and revised standards for 2022, many of which had either been announced before or were otherwise expected.

They include a rewritten Emergency Management (EM) chapter, released on December 17.

By late December, TJC had at least 20 new or revised standards on its prepublication page online, including requirements for certifications as well as a variety of healthcare programs, hospitals among them.

Many of the new and revised standards will remain in prepublication status until they become effective. Some are not effective until April or July.
