Abstract : Medical and patient care audits are required on a regular basis for hospitals accredited through the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals (JCAH). Although these audits are desirable, the procedures involved require a significant number of man-hours. This study was conducted to develop a procedure for accurately recording the total number of man-hour expended on audit activities. The author analyzes other audit related information, and uses a questionnaire survey to arrive at his final conclusions. He then makes detailed recommendations on the implementation of a system to record the number of man-hours expended in audit activities.
