Old Bridge, NJ
Our experience with obtaining deemed status through Joint Commission accreditation has been challenging, but rewarding. Meeting Joint Commission standards gave structure to our ambulatory surgery center from leadership and patient safety to infection control, performance improvement and emergency management.
The Joint Commission ambulatory surveyors were fair, educational and very willing to share their experience. The annual Periodic Performance Review enables us to stay up-to-date with the standards. Overall, The Joint Commission is an excellent resource for all of our compliance questions.
