Medical Safety
Medical Safety Environment of Care (EC)/Physical Environment (PE) Risk Management Toolkit 


Safety is defined as freedom from unacceptable risks, and it is the cornerstone for the Joint Commission's EC/PE standards.

To manage risk within the EC, military treatment facilities must effectively plan and execute effective programs related to safety, security, hazardous materials and waste, fire safety, medical equipment and facilities/utilities management.

This toolkit provides practical information and guidance, templates, sample policies, work sheets, checklists and similar tools to improve compliance with the Joint Commission's EC/PE standards.
