Executive Summary
A Medical Treatment Center in the state of Missouri committed to providing the highest quality care in a safe environment, therefore registered with The Joint Commission to have periodic unannounced accreditation surveys of the facility. The purpose of these surveys is to evaluate the Medical Treatment Center’s compliance with nationally established standards. The Joint Commission standards deal with organization quality of care issues and the safety of the environment in which care is provided. In the spring of 2012 the Medical Treatment Center received one of these periodic inspections from the Joint Commission. The Medical Treatment Center at the time was utilizing 64 gallon carts to collect all confidential documents for the purpose of shredding at a later date. The Joint Commission inspector indicated that all containers must be in accordance to fire safety standards and must be under 32 gallons. All containers over 32 gallons were deemed a fire hazard according to the inspector.
