Not so very long ago, The Joint Commission and ASHE announced the creation of an information resource to assist with all those pesky EC/LS findings that have been reproducing like proverbial rabbits.

Well, since that announcement, the elves have been very busy cobbling together bits and pieces of this and that, with the end result being a rather interesting blend of stuff (please note that I did not employ the more severe descriptor-stuff and nonsense), with titles like "Is Your Hospital's Air Ventilation System Putting Your Patients At Risk?" (this one's in the Leadership module, so I guess they're asking the question of organizational leadership). I truly hope that your response to that particular query would be "absolutely not," but I've also been working this part of the street long enough to know (absolutely, if you will allow me a brief moment of hyperbole) that there are few absolutes when it comes to the management of the physical environment.
