36% of Joint Commission accredited facilities may be at risk of being cited for non-compliance w/ TJC’s Dose Incident Identification & Review mandate

In a recent poll 36% of facility administrators indicated they are using their CT scanners’ XR-29 dose notification and alert capabilities to meet The Joint Commission’s (TJC’s) Dose Incident Identification and Review requirements.  The reality is that a majority (and likely a vast majority) of these facilities are not in compliance with TJC’s mandate.

Hint:  TJC requires the facility to establish a dose range for every scan performed at that facility and compare the total dose imparted for each scan against its expected range.

Who can tell me why this likely poses a problem?
