HFAP released its 2020 HFAP Quality Review, which highlights industry trends based on deficiencies noted during surveys of acute care hospitals, critical access hospitals, laboratories and ASCs. 

Here are four of the most common findings: 

1. Healthcare organizations struggle with integrating quality as a documentation driver. 

2. Surveyors found deficiencies related to the management of a building's environment and its effect on patient and visitor safety. 

3. Surveyors frequently noted issues with eye wash stations, noncompliant air-pressure relationships, and ceiling, wall, floor and other surface defects. 

4. ASCs' most common deficiency was related to aggregate sanitation citations.
