You need the 2021 CAMH Hospital Update Service to keep your hard copy 2021 Comprehensive Accreditation Manual for Hospitals (CAMH) up to date throughout the year. With this annual subscription, you’ll get the latest accreditation information and changes.
Note: If you don't have a current manual, you need the 2021 Comprehensive Accreditation Manual for Hospitals before you can purchase the 2021 CAMH Hospital Update Service.
As long as you maintain your Comprehensive Accreditation Manual with its update service, you don’t need to purchase another manual. For example, if you purchased a 2020 CAMH, as long as you purchased a 2020 CAMH Hospital Update Service and properly inserted the spring and fall updates, you’re ready for January 1, 2021, standards. This year, you just need to purchase the 2021 CAMH Hospital Update Service to maintain the manual into the next year. You can’t skip an update—the replacement pages must be inserted with each update to maintain integrity of the update service.
