Hurricane JCAHO was the most powerful hurricane in the 2017 hurricane season. A powerful Category 5 Cape Verde hurricane, Hurricane JCAHO wreaked havoc on all open beverage containers in health care institutions from coast to coast in the United States. One-hundred-ninety mile per hour winds easily swept nurse station counter tops and other work stations of cans, plastic bottles, and Styrofoam cups. Hurricane JCAHO easily overpowered Operation Temporary Change, the usual defense against Joint Commission storms rated Category 3 or less.
