106 Preparing for an NCCHC Mental Health or Juvenile Services Accreditation Survey

As facilities seek accreditation for juvenile or mental health services, staff may be unfamiliar with the NCCHC standards or accreditation process. This workshop will provide options for a preparation plan that meets facility needs and will also be useful for facilities that lost key staff between surveys. Topics will include how to engage staff, reviewing and cross-walking standards to ensure compliance indicators are addressed, continuous quality improvement, disaster drill planning, policy/procedure reviews, and conducting walk-throughs.

Educational Objectives

  • Identify three activities focused on engaging staff, individually and as teams, in the accreditation preparation process
  • Summarize a continuous quality improvement process and how to present a CQI study
  • Evaluate the content and organization of health records with regard to standards' compliance indicators
