A checklist that follows the AHA standards to conduct an environment of care inspections.
Whether inpatient or outpatient, any facility where patients are treated faces environmental risks, from security and fire safety to medical equipment and hazardous waste. An environment of care management plan creates a culture of safety for staff, patients and visitors. Maintaining a safe environment of care involves more than just quality health care, it includes construction and renovation, emergency management, utility and equipment maintenance, and more. Use this Environment of Care Documentation Checklist to minimize risk, ensure patient, staff, and visitor well-being, and preserve quality and safety of care.
