Evaluation hospitalière : l'exemple de l'accréditation aux Etats-Unis – Application aux urgences

Evaluation of Hospital Emergency departments in the US is done by JCAH, an independent professional organization. Its accreditation manual tends to show that procedures, personnel, equipment and facilities used by the hospital, contribute to quality of care. This process may seem rather "bureaucratic", which is why the JCAH has launched a huge research program on the results achieved by hospitals.
