As seen in the Consultant Connection November 2015 Issue

ned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Home Care Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective care.  
ICP underwent rigorous on-site surveys in July 2015. During the surveys, compliance with standards reflecting key organization areas was evaluated, including the provision of care, treatment and services, emergency management, human resources, individual rights and responsibilities, and leadership. The accreditation process also provided ICP with education and guidance to help staff continue to improve its program’s performance.
Established in 1988, The Joint Commission’s Home Care Accreditation program supports the efforts of its accredited organizations to help deliver safe, high quality care and services, including services provided in the long term care setting.
“When individuals engage a home care provider they want to be sure that provider is capable of providing safe, quality care,” said Margherita Labson, RN, M.S., executive director, Home Care Accreditation program, The Joint Commission. “As the home care setting becomes increasingly popular, it is important that home care providers are able to demonstrate that they are capable of providing safe, high quality care.  Accreditation by The Joint Commission and the gold seal serve as an indication that the organization has demonstrated compliance to these recognized standards of safe and quality care.”
“Our Tiffin and Mason offices are pleased to receive accreditation from The Joint Commission, the premier health care quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation,” added Martha Somers, Performance Improvement Coordinator. “Accreditation by The Joint Commission serves as an indication that we have demonstrated compliance to these recognized standards of safe and quality care. Our staff continues to work together to strengthen the continuum of care and deliver optimal services to our customers.”
