Healthcare Environment of Care Mock Survey

Safety University is committed to providing actionable deliverables so our healthcare clients can quickly address any deficiencies or areas for improvement.

Survey preparedness goes beyond compliance, resonating deeply in the dynamic healthcare landscape. Even the most meticulous organizations can be caught off-guard by unforeseen interpretations and requirements. This underscores the need for sustained survey readiness among entities like hospitals, behavioral health care organizations, ambulatory clinics, home care companies, and others. Our distinct approach, rooted in extensive Joint Commission & CMS experience, propels your readiness beyond compliance, driving perpetual organizational excellence.

We exhibit adaptability and responsiveness by customizing surveys to your precise needs, whether tailored for your accreditation body or solely focused on CMS CoPs compliance. Acknowledging the varied requirements of healthcare facilities—hospitals, home health & hospice services, ambulatory surgery centers, psychiatric hospitals, and critical access hospitals—we deliver a verbal exit report and a comprehensive written report post mock survey. These reports are strategically designed for immediate, impactful action in upcoming surveys and ongoing regulatory readiness.

Safety University's accreditation and compliance consultants are seasoned Environment of Care (EOC) and Life Safety surveyors, chosen for their technical expertise and coaching proficiency. They transcend mere mock surveyors, sharing your compliance goals. Our emphasis extends beyond survey execution, encompassing consultative guidance to implement and sustain compliance seamlessly.

Safety University is dedicated to delivering actionable outcomes, enabling our healthcare clients to promptly address deficiencies and drive improvements.
