JCAHO.

It's a rare day when JCAHO revokes a fully accredited hospital's accreditation. I have found only one so far, but I've only checked the larger states on the JCAHO "Quality Check" page, where you can find the accreditation status and accreditation history of various health care organizations. Modern Healthcare's "Daily Dose" reports that Greater Southeast Community Hospital in Washington, D.C., has lost its appeal of JCAHO's June revocation decision, but GSCH was never more than conditionally accredited.
