Joint Commissions Standard PC 01.02.09 on Victims of Abuse
In 2004, The Joint Commission instituted new standards for hospitals on how to respond to domestic abuse, neglect and exploitation, and later revised these standards in 2009. To help hospitals comply with these requirements, Futures Without Violence summarized the standards and provided recommendations for each with links to on-line resources and tools. This tool is available as a PDF only.
The primary resource to help hospitals comply with the Joint Commission’s standards for hospitals on responding to domestic abuse, neglect and exploitation is Futures Without Violence’s National Consensus Guidelines on Identifying and Responding to Domestic Violence Victimization in Health Care Settings.
