The Joint Commission Support

We offer you an independent support system to prepare for The Joint Commission surveys, requirement assessments and visits and protect your accreditation. Partnering with your clinical and leadership staff to identify opportunities for improving your quality of care and correcting deficiencies before the TJC surveyors arrive.

During the entire process, we are an independent set of eyes that let you see how well your facility is meeting TJC requirements. BGI’s mock survey teams use professional MDs, PAs, NPs and RNs supported by other clinical and seasoned non-clinical specialists as needed. Seamlessly blending with your staff working collaboratively, we guide your staff through a series of recurring actions and events so they know exactly what to expect and are well prepared when the TJC inspector comes to review their unit.

“Being prepared and organized for an accreditation survey is critical to success."
