LifeNet Health and Your Joint Commission Review

It is our goal to do all we can to help our hospital partners prepare for your Joint Commission site visit. With a timely reminder prior to your Joint Commission review, our hospital liaison will provide you with all of the following information:

  • Current copy of LifeNet Health /Hospital agreement
  • Current copy of all hospital policies relating to organ donation, brain death and diligent search for potential organ donors
  • A history of all referrals from the hospital covering the timeframe between Joint Commission reviews
  • A summary of all "actual" donors from the hospital covering the timeframe between Joint Commission reviews
  • Documentation of all Education In-Services
  • Any other information regarding donation which would be useful for the hospital and their Joint Commission review
  • Sample Hospital Policy and Procedure
  • Sample Brain Death Policy
  • Sample Apnea Testing Policy

If you have any special needs to help you prepare for your Joint Commission site review, please contact your LifeNet Health hospital liaison.
