She will also go over the processes in place that helped her facility to achieve a deficiency-free Joint Commission survey. Helms will also go over the importance of a culture of readiness and how persistent readiness – whether TJC is expected to show up or not – can reduce the stress related to a survey. She will also relay some key elements that put into place during the survey to help with the success of the survey.
