Hospitals are complex systems with multiple professional disciplines providing a vast array of services for patients with different illnesses. Because of the complexity, annual safety training is necessary to ensure the safety and wellbeing of patients and staff.


The Joint Commission and/or state and local agencies monitor staff training records periodically to verify that training is taking place and to determine what effect it is having on patient and staff safety.
