The University of Toledo Medical Center will hold a Joint Commission Safety Fair Tuesday, May 23, in the Four Season’s Bistro.

The fair is scheduled to run from 2 to 4 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

All faculty and staff are encouraged to participate in the event in preparation for the upcoming triennial Joint Commission accreditation visit. The accreditation visit is unannounced and will take place prior to Wednesday, Nov. 1. 

The safety fair serves as a way to boost awareness of hot topics to increase compliance with regulatory requirements. 

Topics offered will include: medication management, pain management, fall reduction, appropriate use of restraints, sepsis, suicide precautions, environment of care topics, life safety topics, universal protocol, infection prevention, joint commission accreditation information, and national patient safety goals.   

There will be a station for each topic with activities, prizes and/or treats, ending with ice cream for all participants.
