Good Shepherd Hospice, LifePath Hospice, Chapters Health welcome
March 4, 2014: Good Shepherd Hospice, LifePath Hospice and Chapters Health System welcome the Joint Commission! Joint Commission surveyors visit accredited health care organizations a minimum of once every 39 months to evaluate standards compliance. This visit is called a survey. All regular Joint Commission accreditation surveys are unannounced.
Joint Commission surveyors are highly trained experts who are doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, laboratory medical technologists, and other health care professionals. The Joint Commission is the only health care accrediting body that requires its surveyors be certified.
Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public through the provision of health care accreditation and related services that support performance improvement in health care organizations. The Joint Commission evaluates and accredits more than 20,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States, including more than 9,500 hospitals and home care organizations, and more than 6,300 other health care organizations that provide long term care, behavioral health care, laboratory and ambulatory care services. In addition, The Joint Commission also provides certification of more than 1,000 disease-specific care programs, primary stroke centers, and health care staffing services. An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission is the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.
