Health Leaders Media

Shelia Hull, RN, Joint Commission specialist with Pikeville Medical Center, Pikeville, KY, was with the organization just a few months before the latest PPR was due to The Joint Commission. At that time, she and her supervisor discovered the organization had fallen out of compliance with its timing and dating of physician orders.

“We were trying to come up with ways to achieve better compliance in this area,” says Hull. “We already had reminders at the documentation areas on each floor.”
