The Joint Commission (TJC) recently released a series of FAQs that clarify NPSG.03.05.01 for Ambulatory, Hospital, Critical Access Hospital and Nursing Care Center accreditation programs.

Organizations that only monitor or provide education about anticoagulant medication do not need to meet the requirements outlined in NPSG.03.05.01.
