Guam - The Guam Memorial Hospital is going to have to wait a while longer before they find out if they will receive accreditation from the Joint Commission. GMH spokesperson Connor Murphy says JCO requested more documents from the hospital, and GMH officials anticipate submitting that information before the end of the month.
"It's things all over the hospital. It's everything from fire sprinklers, to magnetic locks on the doors to the way the doctors fill out their charts. It's things like that, things all over the hospital. We have to make sure we have a plan in place to meet the standards they've set for us," he said.
Murphy says once the documents are submitted, hospital officials will wait for the Joint Commission to review them and then make a decision on their request for a three-year full accreditation.
