Accreditation keeps us on our toes. We regularly receive standards updates, alerts and information about common areas for improvement. It gives us a structure around which to focus our quality improvement efforts.
Joint Commission surveyors are an excellent educational resource for our staff. Whenever the surveyors identify an area for improvement, they also provide examples of how other organizations meet the requirement. It is a very collaborative effort and the staff appreciates the input.
We used the on-site periodic performance review and we were very happy with that choice. It was extremely helpful to have a surveyor walk through our center with “fresh eyes” and give us feedback.
