In the news: AMA requests one-year delay on disruptive behavior rule

Stressed Out Nurses Weekly, December 8, 2008

As the effective date for The Joint Commission’s (formerly JCAHO) standard on disruptive behavior creeps up, the American Medical Association (AMA) House of Delegates has asked for a one-year hold on the rule.

A recent article published in amednews, the AMA’s weekly newspaper, says the AMA has asked to delay the standard—slated to take effect January 1, 2009—to allow adequate time for medical staff to change bylaws to comply with the rule.
