There are some important changes to the JC (JCAHO) NPSG for 2010, some that are effective immediately. These were just announced in their Sep. 9 newsletter.
Most important to vascular access RNs:
07.02.01--The NPSG was deleted for all programs
07.04.01--The NPSG was deleted for the ambulatory care, home care, and office-based surgery programs
I would encourage you to go to the site and download the NPSG that apply to your work setting. http://www.jointcommission.org/PatientSafety/NationalPatientSafetyGoals/
Many of the device manufactures have developed tools and education that can help you meet these goals. I would encourage you to reach out to them to assist you.
