Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Oct. 30.
Northwest Health Physicians’ Specialty Hospital has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Hospital Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.
Northwest Health Physicians’ Specialty Hospital underwent a rigorous, unannounced onsite review on Oct. 1. During the visit, a team of Joint Commission reviewers evaluated compliance with hospital standards spanning several areas including emergency management, environment of care, infection prevention and control, leadership, medication management, and rights and responsibilities of the individual.
The Joint Commission’s standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. They are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help health care organizations measure, assess and improve performance. The surveyors also conducted onsite observations and interviews.
“As a private accreditor, The Joint Commission surveys health care organizations to protect the public by identifying deficiencies in care and working with those organizations to correct them as quickly and sustainably as possible,” says Mark Pelletier, RN, MS, chief operating officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and chief nursing executive, The Joint Commission. “We commend Northwest Health Physicians’ Specialty Hospital for its continuous quality improvement efforts in patient safety and quality of care.”
“We are pleased to receive The Gold Seal of Approval®, an internationally recognized symbol of quality, from The Joint Commission,” said Michael Herr, chief administrative officer of Northwest Health Physicians’ Specialty Hospital. “Staff from across the organization continue to work together to develop and implement approaches that improve care for the patients in our community.”
