The accreditation process
1.Begin with the accreditation process by education: Educate the leaders and the managers and explain the benefits, advantages, process, timeline, etc., of the accreditation
Baseline assessment: Use knowledgeable and credible evaluators (either internal or external consultants) who will critically and objectively assess each area and conduct a detailed baseline assessment of the organization’s current adherence to the standards and each measurable element. Score as “Met,” “Partially Met,” or “Not Met” and cite specific findings and recommendations. Also collect and analyze baseline quality data as required by the quality monitoring standards (e.g., medication errors, hospital-associated infection rates, antibiotic usage, surgical complications, etc.) Establish an ongoing monitoring system for data collection (e.g., monthly, with quarterly data analysis) to identify problem areas and track progress in improvement.
2.Action planning: Using the findings of the baseline assessment, develop a detailed project plan starting first with priority areas of the core standards. Responsibilities, deliverables, and timeframes should be assigned (e.g., revise informed consent policy, develop a new informed consent statement, educate staff in the next two-month time period.)
Chapter assignment: Look for good people skills, time-management skills, and consensus-building skills, and assign oversight of each chapter of standards to a respected champion or leader who will identify team members from throughout the hospital and carry out the process.
3.Policies and procedures: In addition to an overall project plan, it is often helpful to compile a list of all required policies and procedures that will need development and revision. Continue to monitor your progress in meeting the standards, such as through a mini-evaluation of each chapter at regular intervals (e.g., quarterly).
4.Final mock survey: Plan for a final “mock survey ” at least four to six months in advance of the target date of the actual accreditation survey. Use evaluators (internal or external consultants) who were not involved in the baseline assessment and preparation, who will look at the organization with a fresh and objective eye. Plan final revisions and corrections based on the findings of the final mock survey.
