Accreditation is a big concern for everyone in the hospital. With Joint Commission standards changing annually and the addition of new accreditation agencies like DNV Accreditation Inc., there is plenty that goes into preparation for a survey.

An exclusive panel discussion at the 3rd Annual Hospital Safety Center Symposium, May 14-15 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, will offer an overview of the major accreditation issues. Speakers will include Ann Scott Blouin, PhD, RN, executive vice president in the Division of Accreditation and Certification Operations at The Joint Commission; Patrick Horine, executive vice president of Accreditation Services at DNV Healthcare Inc.; Rebecca Wise, chief operating officer at DNV Healthcare Inc.; and George A. Reuther, chief operation officer at the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program. The presentation will include a 45 minute Q&A session with the representatives.
