Darlene Riddle, RN, makes Joint Commission prep fun!
Darlene Riddle, RN, on 6 South is prepping her unit to shine during our next Joint Commission survey. She does mock tracers, as well as random mini “unannounced unit visits,” then communicates back to the staff what she has found.
Starting around Valentine’s Day, Darlene posted little hearts around the unit, highlighting information that surveyors often ask about, like restraints, patient rights, and hand washing. These are great reminders and help the staff to feel more confident about talking with surveyors.
Joint Commission prep doesn’t need to be intimidating. Darlene is helping to make it fun and easy to get everyone on board. -Devra Cockerille, RN
