This brand-new collection of checklists from JCR will help you to manage and improve your compliance with the EC, EM, and LS standards across health care settings. Our customers have told us that they rely on checklists to coordinate compliance. Indeed, checklists are proven improvement tools, and the checklists in this collection focus on the actual requirement language as well as best practices. Use them "as is," or download and customize the digital versions to meet your own needs and initiatives.
