Pennsylvania DOH Can Now Exempt Hospitals From Licensure Renewal Surveys

Share on Facebook
The Pennsylvania Department of Health can now grant deemed status to hospitals for licensure purposes if the hospitals have been nationally accredited, according to a Mondaq report.

A deemed status means the hospital may be exempt from routine licensure renewal surveys through the DOH. Original accreditation must be granted by one of four accrediting bodies — Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program, The Joint Commission, Det Norske Veritas or the Center for Improvement in Healthcare Quality.
