Joint Commission and Bullying

If you have ever worked in or around hospitals, you know that two words that get everyone's attention are, Joint Commission. That's a shorthand description of an accreditation review that is a top to bottom scrubbing of every facet of an institution, with serious consequences if you don't meet the standards.

So when Professor David Yamada, the leading proponent of anti-bullying legislation notes that the Joint Commission has enacted standards that can be read as requiring anti-bullying procedures and training, I take note. See Workplace bullying in healthcare I: The Joint Commission standards.
