The Joint Commission
Or, you may choose to report it to The Joint Commission (TJC). TJC conducts accreditation surveys of healthcare organizations to determine their compliance with nationally established Joint Commission standards. These standards deal with an organization's quality, safety-of-care issues, and the safety of the environment where the care is provided.
Holy Cross Hospital is committed to quality care and patient safety. In that regard, any Associate or member of the medical staff who has concerns about the safety or quality of the care provided in the hospital, HealthPlex, Home Health, our laboratories or the Holy Cross Medical Group offices may report those concerns to The Joint Commission (TJC). No retaliatory disciplinary action will be taken against the Associate or physician for reporting safety or quality issues.

Our Associates and physicians can also find this commitment to quality care and patient safety on the Holy Cross Intranet website (SharePoint Portal), in Associate Orientation, Annual Enrichment, and in The Joint Commission Survey Tips booklet (page 13).
We understand that being a patient or being a loved one visiting a hospital can be confusing and often unsettling; that's why we work hard to make your experience as convenient and comforting as possible.
