The Joint Commission conducts accreditation surveys of
Murray-Calloway County Hospital's Laboratory, Long Term
Care, Home Care, and Hospice Departments.
The purpose of the survey will be to evaluate the
organization's compliance with nationally established
Joint Commission standards. The survey results will be
used to determine the conditions under
which accreditation should be awarded to 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 at the time of the survey. Information
presented at the interview will be carefully evaluated
for relevance to the accreditation process. Requests
for a public information interview must be made in
writing and should be sent to the Joint Commission. The
request must indicate the nature of the information to
be provided at the interview.
Such requests should be addressed to:
Division Of Accreditation Operations
Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare
One Renaissance Boulevard
Oakbrook Terrace, IL 60181
The Joint Commission can also be reached at the
following phone number: 630-792-5900.
The Joint Commission will acknowledge such requests
in writing or by telephone and will inform the
organization of the request for any interview. The
organization will, in turn, notify the interviewee of
the date, time, and place of the meeting.
