FAQ Documents on Laryngoscopes and Endotracheal Tubes Released by The Joint Commission

Monday, October 14, 2013

ASA has received reports from members who were cited by The Joint Commission (TJC) for opening single use endotracheal tubes or laryngoscope blades in preparation for use during surgical procedures. In response to these concerns, ASA engaged in collaborative discussions with TJC to clarify standards and interpretation of the requirements.  As a result of these discussions, TJC has developed two new Standards FAQs for Hospital, Ambulatory Health Care and Office-Based Surgery accreditation, which delineate more simplified processes and encourage development of facility policy and procedure to manage these devices.  The new Standards FAQs were released by TJC on October 11, 2013.
