The purpose of this study is to survey the safety situation and quality of care in selected hospitals of Tehran University of medical sciences based on the Joint Commission International (JCI) standards and determination of their strengths and weaknesses. Materials and Method: This descriptive, analytical and cross-sectional study was carried out in 5 hospitals. Translated Joint Commission International (JCI) questionnaire checklist with 14 standards was used as the study tool. Data entry and statistical analysis were performed using the SPSS.13 and K Independent Samples tests were used to compare hospitals. Results: Highest quality and safety of care score belonged to the hospital B (84%) and then to hospitals C (83%), A (72.75%), E (72%) and D (70.5%). Central indices like patient and family rights, quality improvement and patient safety, infection prevention and control standards in the studied hospitals are completely different according to the statistical results. Conclusion: Study results show that the status of hospitals in terms of safety and quality of care are almost appropriate but in some cases there is a large distance between JCI standards and their current status and the studied hospitals have to make appropriate and related policies in order to plan and implement proper programs to improve their situation in quality and safety of care.
