Two MS.01.01.01 FAQs posted

Accreditation Connection, March 18, 2011

The Joint Commission has posted two new Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) on the ever-challenging standard MS.01.01.01, addressing medical staff bylaws.

The FAQs address two key topics in the standard, specifically:

  • Whether it is required for medical staff representation to participate in all governing board discussions related to hospital business, operations, and management and,
  • Whether a formal medical staff meeting is required to obtain adoption or approval of the medical staff bylaws and revisions of amendments

The answers to these questions can be located on The Joint Commission’s FAQ page.
