Joint Commission survey underway

The Joint Commission is on site at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital this week to conduct a full survey for WVU Medicine-WVU Hospitals, including a behavioral health survey.

The hospital accreditation survey team and the number of days they will be on campus is:

  • ambulatory specialist (two days)
  • generalist (four days)
  • engineer (three days)
  • administrator (four days)
  • physician (four days)
  • nurse (four days)

A generalist will survey the Behavioral Health Care Program for two days.

Any and all staff members may be asked questions by a surveyor. A survey checklist should help employees prepare for the visit.

The last full survey was in 2015 and WVU Medicine-WVU Hospitals received accreditation for all services.
