GMH gets accreditation paperwork in

by Michele Catahay

Guam - The Guam Memorial Hospital has submitted additional documentation to the Joint Commission in the hopes the facility will receive accreditation. According to GMH Spokesperson Connor Murphy, the hospital still needs to compile another set of documents that will be submitted in the next couple of weeks.

"Last week, we submitted all the evidence that they needed that would have direct patient impact. For example, they wanted some information on testing of medical gas systems, the sprinklers we have in the facility, our programs to make sure physician's medication orders are complete. Our next step us is to give them evidence that has a indirect impact on patient care," he said.

Murphy says once all documents are submitted, the Commission will hand over its final decision bringing a close to years of efforts to gain full accreditation.
