Environment of Care & Life Safety

This educational activity is jointly provided by AXIS Medical Education and NCHA

December 7, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This one-day program will provide valuable information for those responsible for creating the Environment of Care and Life Safety programs and who must understand the Joint Commission survey methodology and recent changes to the standards. Information will be provided so attendees can implement a practical, continuously compliant program to achieve maximum performance while effectively preparing for unscheduled Joint Commission and Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services surveys. Attendees will also receive guidance to understand and interpret the most serious deficiencies commonly found in surveys. Sufficient time will also be provided for questions and discussion. A new module to this program discusses environmental risk assessment strategies for behavioral health populations.


Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of hospital and health system accreditation and regulatory compliance officers, safety directors/officers, risk managers, quality management and performance improvement directors. Also, facility and engineering managers, nurses, infection control practitioners, and administrative and clinical staff who are responsible for or who manage others with Environment of Care and Life Safety responsibilities.


  • Describe the process changes related to the Statement of Conditions and Plan for Improvement.
  • Identify the structure of The Joint Commission, Hospital Accreditation Program Environment of Care and Life Safety standards.
  • Explain the content and requirements of the Environment of Care standards and the administrative requirements of the Life Safety Chapters.
  • Recall the recent changes to the Environment of Care and Life Safety chapters and determine key program management requirements within those chapters.
  • Identify strategies to use The Joint Commission standards as a framework for effective program management.
