Accreditation Surveyors


NCCHC survey teams are made up of experienced physicians, nurses, health services administrators and other health professionals who understand corrections and combine that knowledge with their professional expertise.

These specially trained surveyors visit correctional facilities seeking accreditation to measure compliance with NCCHC standards. These individuals share their time and knowledge because they are committed to the cause of improved quality in correctional health care.They review patient health records as well as policies and procedures; interview health staff, correctional officers and inmates; and tour the facility. At the end of the survey, they conduct an exit conference with key personnel to discuss their preliminary findings.


"When I worked at the jail, I used most of my vacation days doing surveys. I learned so much and found it so rewarding. It made me a better administrator and correctional health care professional.”
