ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the Joint Commission's Board of Commissioners to suspend implementation of its revised MS 1.20 standard in the U.S. on May 30, 2008. The standard, scheduled to take effect on July 1, 2009, focuses on medical staff bylaws, rules and regulations. A task force recommended the suspension. It was found that the standard seems to reduce the responsibility and authority of the hospital board and medical executive committee.
