Best Answer

Each country has its own agency for determining whether a medical facility is in compliance with safety laws.

In the US, that agency is the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) or an equivalent agency within the governments of about half the states.

However, in the US most hospitals will focus more on the requirements of the Joint Commission (the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations ) a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization that accredits hospitals. While the Joint Commission looks at a wide variety of criteria related to patient care, comfort and safety, they also look at employee safety.

Does the International Court of Justice ensure countries compliance with the law?

The fact of the matter is that the ICJ cannot actually ensure state compliance. The ICJ simply determines whether or not any violation of a treaty between two or more nation states has been violated. The ICJ does not have any means of enforcing the law. In fact, international law is enforced primarily by the Security Council.
