What does that mean to you?
Accreditation means that we have
to undergo a challenging, comprehensive evaluation. We have made a
significant extra effort to review and improve the key factors that can
affect the quality and safety of your care.
Because Joint Commission standards are regarded as the most rigorous in the
industry, organizations that choose to be accredited by the Joint Commission
are committed to providing the highest level of care. The Joint Commission's
seal of approval is a clear sign that we have demonstrated compliance with
the most stringent standards of performance.
A team of health care professionals from the Joint Commission personally
visited our facility to conduct a review and looked at how well we:
provide a safe environment for care
protect your rights and your patient's rights, including their/your
right to confidentiality.
plan for emergency situations
continually work with our facilities and their patients/residents to
evaluate patient/resident condition before, during and after diagnosis
protect against infection
Accreditation is an accomplishment that we are proud of, and rightfully so.
It means we have been recognized for complying with rigorous national
performance standards that promote safe and quality health care. It means
we've earned the Joint Commission seal of approval!
The fact that we have gone through this evaluation shows an extraordinary
commitment to provide safe, high quality care and a willingness to be
measured against the highest standards of performance.
