What is the Joint Commission?
If you or your family member has a concern related to quality or patient safety, please feel free to contact a University of Chicago Medicine representative in the Office of Patient Safety at 773-834-0473 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Joint Commission conducts an accreditation survey of the University of Chicago Medical Center on an unannounced basis.
The purpose of the survey is to evaluate the organization's compliance with nationally established Joint Commission standards. The survey results are used to determine whether, and the conditions under which, accreditation should be awarded the organization.
Joint Commission standards deal with organizational quality of care issues and the safety of the environment in which care is provided. Anyone believing that he or she has pertinent and valid information about such matters may contact the Joint Commission at the following number.
