The Joint Commission:
The Joint Commission uses information from a variety of sources to improve the quality and safety of care in the more than 18,000 health care organizations it accredits and certifies. Information about health care organizations often comes in the form of complaints from patients, their families, government agencies, the public, as well as from an organization’s own staff, and information from the media. The Joint Commission’s Office of Quality Monitoring evaluates each complaint that relates to safety and quality of care issues, such as patient rights, care of patients, safety, staffing, infection control, medication use and security.

Individuals reporting a complaint may remain anonymous. However, providing a name and contact information enables The Joint Commission to inform the individual about the actions taken in response to the complaint, and allows The Joint Commission to contact them should additional information be needed. In addition, Joint Commission policy requires that no accredited or certified organization take retaliatory actions against employees for having reported quality of care concerns to The Joint Commission.
