Joint Commission Maternal Safety Initiatives

Effective July 1, 2020, 13 new elements of performance (EPs) will be applicable to Joint Commission-accredited hospitals. These new requirements are designed to improve the quality and safety of care provided to women during all stages of pregnancy and postpartum. Once again, the focus is on reducing maternal morbidity and mortality. These 13 EPs focus on maternal hemorrhage (7EPs) and severe hypertension/preeclampsia (6EPs). The Farley Group,LLC can help you prepare for your next JC survey with regards to these maternal safety initiatives, the content, the requirements, the rationale, and techniques for meeting all requirements.
