Millions of football (soccer) fans around the world have been waiting four years for the 2014 FIFA World Cup which is the 20th FIFA World Cup, an international men’s football tournament which began on Thursday, 12 June 2014 and currently taking place in Brazil.
I am sure many readers already know that football might seem pretty straightforward. You will also surely know that a match of soccer has two teams of eleven players on a field (called a pitch), both trying to put a spherical ball into the other team’s goal. They can use any part of their body besides their arms or hands to do so, except the goalie (called a keeper), who can use his hands as long as he’s within a box in front of his own net.to play one man down for the rest of the match.
A team is made up of ten defenders, midfielders, and forwards — with varying numbers of each for strategic reasons — plus one keeper. Different coaches use all sorts of different numbers and formations of the first three: currently, the 4-2-3-1 formation (four defenders, two defensive midfielders, three attacking midfielders, and a forward) is especially popular.
Readers, this post if actually about the Patient Medical Record Review Form (MRRF) found in the Joint Commission International (JCI) Hospital Survey Process Guide (HSPG), Fifth Edition manual. This form is used during a Closed Patient Medical Records session to determine whether or not relevant documentation requirements for relevant standards from the JCI Hospital Accreditation Standards (HAS), Fifth Edition have been met.
As the more burning topic of interest for the next couple of weeks is the World Cup 2014 now under way, I decided to graphically represent a total of 61 JCI HAS found in this form as an Infographic showing a football match played by two teams each consisting of not more than eleven players (standards) – one of whom is the goalkeeper, using the 4-2-3-1 formation.
Just as a match of football might seem pretty straightforward, the implementation and use of the Patient MRRF during a Closed Patient Medical Records (CPMR) session is not that straightforward.
This post is the first part of a series of posts on the Patient MRRF.
As a brief overview, a total of sixty-one (61) JCI HAS are now included in this form. Several JCI HAS have been dropped from the Patient MRRF based on the JCI HSPG, Fourth Edition.. New HAS have been included based on the JCI HAS, Fifth Edition. The Standards in the JCI HAS, Fifth Edition have been rearranged and modified; as such some JCI HAS found in the Patient MMRF based on the JCI HSPG, Fourth Edition.have been given new Standards Number(s).
For a start, below is an infographic showing some twenty-two (22) JCI HAS from the total of 61 JCI HAS found in the Patient MMRF of the JCI HSPG, Fifth Edition. Click on the image which will open a new tab of your current browser window, and to view a larger image just click on the magnifying glass which appears over the image.
The subsequent post on this series will bring you more infograhics and on the changes in the Patient MMRF found in the JCI HSPG, Fifth Edition effective 1 April 2014.
