Health service accreditation survey
The length of the survey depends on the size of your facility and the complexity of health services provided but, on average, is usually one to two days. Surveys can be undertaken at your facility or virtually or in a hybrid format.
Our survey teams are made up of experienced physicians, nurses, health administrators and other health professionals who understand corrections and combine that knowledge with their professional expertise. The survey team will:
- Review health records, policies, and procedures
- Interview health staff, correctional ofﬁcers, and incarcerated persons
- Tour the facility.
At the end of the survey, an exit conference will be conducted to discuss their preliminary ﬁndings.
NCCHC approaches surveys as an educational experience for you and your staff. We are committed to helping you to achieve compliance with the standards and to beneﬁt from the accreditation experience.
