Regulatory organizations and government officials began to focus on the need for quality in hopes to decrease medical errors and healthcare cost. The Joint Commission of Accredited Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) was one of the first regulatory organizations to develop standards of care or goals around specific patient safety issues. The program is known as JCAHO’s National Patient Safety Goals and it originally started with six goals and was implemented in 2003 (Catalano, 2002). JCAHO remains at the forefront of patient safety by expanding, revising and developing the National Patient Safety Goal Program each year. Many organizations and other regulatory agencies use JACHO’s safety goal program as the foundation to develop a “culture of safety.” Barnsteiner (2011), reported a “culture of safety is to lessen harm to patients and providers through both system effectiveness and individual performance (pg.
Meaningful use is a set of rules that decide if healthcare providers will receive federal funds from the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program or both.

Established in 2002 by the Joint Commission to address the issue of safety in healthcare were various patient safety goals which dealt with many safety problems the accredited organization might face including medication and communication errors. The Joint Commission has also established National Patient Safety Goals for accredited organizations to follow in order to encourage patient safety by reevaluating the sentinel events data collected every year and revising the goals by omitting achieved goals and creating new ones. Hospitals evaluated by the Joint Commission must demonstrate compliance with the NPSGs as part of the accreditation process (Ellis & Hartley,
