The Joint Commission has created a task force and charged it with exploring issues surrounding implementation of revisions to standard MS.1.20. The task force is expected to present its findings at the Board of Commissioners meeting, which takes place at the end of February. It was unclear at presstime whether immediate action would take place following the task force's report. "We have no idea what we're going to be seeing," says Ann O'Connell, partner at Sacramento, CA-based Nossaman Guthner Knox & Elliott, LLP, and a member of The Joint Commission's (formerly JCAHO) task force. "I can say the discussions were productive, lively, and everyone had an opportunity to present their positions and opinions. There was also a fair amount of listening that went on."
