Abstract

Contracted services have gained greater emphasis in the home care standards and survey process over the past several years, especially as they relate to the quality and safety of the services provided. This column reviews 2004-2005 standard LD.3.50, its applicable elements of performance, and discusses the Joint Commission's requirements for evaluating the care and services provided by contracted providers.
