SPIRITUAL ASSESSMENT

JCAHO

Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations

JCAHO mandates the routine assessment of spiritual needs. The commission considers that the spiritual component of a person’s life must be considered in health care. In their accreditation reviews, they evaluate how patients' spiritual needs are being assessed. For example, areas of assessment include how patients use spiritual coping, and how patients' prayer life and religious practices give meaning to their life. A patient's spiritual needs are considered an indispensable factor in providing total health care to patients.
