Joint Commission/Medicare survey – Santa Ana, CA

By: | Tags:

A pleasure of a surveyor who was open to different ideas of how to approach standards so was not stuck on only their “way” of doing things. A fresh take.

Ten hours later . . . What is a peer? TJC has no standard saying what a peer is, but their FAQ says: The definition of a peer is someone from the same discipline with essentially equal qualifications.
