Annual Required Survey for Joint Commission Compliance

As part of our Joint Commission compliance program we have started the Joint Commission required annual hospital performed Life Safety Survey and have hired a local firm, The Fire Consultants, Inc., to perform the survey.

  • The surveyors have completed the survey in the NC Cancer Hospital and are now starting to survey in the Women’s and Children’s Hospitals.
  • Work during the day consists of the surveyors walking through areas and as unobtrusively as possible recording observations in areas below the ceiling grids.
  • This work should not inconvenience our patients, visitors or staff.
  • They have been issued Open Ceiling Permits and have received notice of the areas that require containment when opening a ceiling.
