The Joint Commission has added a clarification to standard RC.02.01.01, EP 4, under the Record of Care, Treatment, and Services chapter. This clarification is a follow-up to a request by CMS on informed consent documentation.

This change affects hospitals and certain critical access hospital units. While the change is effective immediately, it will appear in the first update to Joint Commission manuals in 2011 (due out in March).
