EHNAC’s Policy Regarding COVID-19 and Our Commitment to You

 

Effective Immediately 3/13/20

The world is grappling with an issue of enormous scale and human impact, and our thoughts and concerns are focused on all who have been affected by the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). We believe our role and responsibility during this time is the health, safety and well-being of our families, organizations, staff and partners.

While we are currently maintaining regular operations, we are prepared to modify our procedures for performing accreditation reviews.  This means that as we navigate this dynamic situation, be assured that while we remain focused on the health and safety of our professionals and those around us, we also are focused on assuring stakeholder trust and continued service to our clients.  We are taking appropriate steps during these unique circumstances to assure we continue to deliver the level of quality, excellence and timeliness our clients are accustomed to receiving from EHNAC.

Toward this end, we are temporarily modifying our site visit travel policy.  Travel has ceased for the foreseeable future and we are planning temporary, alternative technological means to conduct these site visit reviews remotely.  For security purposes, we are requesting that candidate organizations provide their preferred Web conferencing tools for these reviews. However, EHNAC can also provide this capability if needed.

Therefore, if your organization is in the process of being scheduled for site reviews, please work with your Site Reviewer on the best approach to for conducting these reviews with you.  We will be monitoring this issue, will reassess our policy by 4/30/20 and will make a further determination at that time.

We thank you for your patience and support.
