Description: Developed by leaders in the fields of health, law and corrections, NCCHC’s nationally recognized Standards lay the foundation for constitutionally acceptable health services systems.
Use of these benchmark standards can help prisons to improve health services delivery. The Standards address nine general areas: health care services and support, patient care and treatment, special needs and services, governance and administration, personnel and training, safety, health records, health promotion and medical-legal issues. This edition features new recommendations for continuous quality improvement, clinical performance enhancement, patient safety, initial health assessment, pharmaceutical operations and women’s health. The manual provides clear compliance indicators that define expected outcomes and aid in self-assessment, guidelines for facilities of various sizes and best practices recommendations.
