Today’s TJC Tidbit

The Joint Commission (TJC) will be visiting Sibley. To help everyone prepare, we will be featuring a daily tip here.

If the surveyor asks you a question, keep your answer focused and to the point. Follow the KISS rule: Keep It Short and Simple. Don’t volunteer extra information as it could lead the surveyor somewhere you really don’t want to go!

Six Countries, Six EDs, One Sibley

If there is ever an emergency situation, Sibley’s Emergency Department is prepared to handle it. The Daily Mirror, a British news outlet, compared how Emergency Departments are performing in six countries around the world. In addition to Sibley’s 30-minute commitment and fast-track, the Mirror also recognized our advanced emergency preparation features—a mass casualty outdoor decontamination shower; the ability to turn our top floor into a 25-bed isolation unit; and our smaller isolation room with its own separate entrance.
