Long-Term Care Advise ERR November 2015 
Safety-Wire-Icon-small-(1).jpg  The Joint Commission (TJC) recently released its 2016 National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) for Long- Term Care (LTC) facilities. While Joint Commission-accredited facilities are expected to comply with the safety measures starting January 1, 2016, we encourage all LTC facilities (even if not accredited by TJC) to adhere to these best practices designed to improve patient/resident safety. Check out the 2016 NPSGs, including easy-to-read versions of the chapters at: www.ismp.org/sc?id=638.
