Written ICU Competency

JCAHO and the State Boards of Health ask for evidence of competency in 'high-risk, low-frequency' areas of patient care. The ICU is considered one of these areas. As we go through the Bells & Whistles(SM) course, a competency form will be completed stating that you appropriately answered each question posed. This gives your facility, JCAHO, and the State Health Department some evidence of your knowledge in the ICU. This competency in no way means you are comfortable, efficient, or safe in the ICU, but it does demonstrate to the governing authorities your effort to address the need for greater skills and knowledge in a 'high-risk, low frequency' area . We always recommended that you spend one-on-one time with a mentor in the ICU (with the mentor providing timely feedback) before working alone in the ICU. In addition, an ICU Precautions/Contraindications Booklet (about 34 pages) will be available for those who choose to take the ICU competency.
