Texas-based JPS Health Network hit with two surprise inspections
Texas-based JPS Health Network got hit with two surprise inspections recently—one by state investigators and one by the Joint Commission. As a result of the Joint Commission inspection, JPS has already been told of a number of deficiencies that must be addressed by certain deadlines, according to interim Chief Executive Robert Earley. Earley added, however, that The Joint Commission inspectors did not indicate that there would be a suspension of accreditation due to the investigation. The state inspection is ongoing, and if it uncovers violations it could also force changes in the way the hospital and its clinics operate, said JPS representatives.
