4 Reasons Why the Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval Matters
So, what does our Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval® for Health Care Staffing Services Certification mean to the many healthcare companies and providers who work with us — and those who may be considering using our industry-leading healthcare recruitment and managed services program?
#1: Validation of our safety measures. The Joint Commission’s review process — conducted both virtually and in person — is known for being rigorous, thorough and unannounced. That means our safety processes and standards have been checked and rechecked, and compared against industry standards to ensure the highest level of quality possible.
#2: Demonstration of our commitment to continuous improvement. One of the lessons that’s been reinforced by the Covid-19 pandemic is that safety standards and best practices are always changing and evolving. Because we’ve committed to Joint Commission certification, we’re agreeing to allow third-party review of all processes in our organization that could impact safety and quality of care. And with this critical info, we’re even better equipped to continuously improve our standards.
#3: Ensuring operational soundness. Reliability is key when it comes to choosing a recruitment provider. The areas reviewed by the Joint Commission included leadership, human resources, information management, and performance management and improvement. Developed in consultation with experts, providers and patients, the high standards established for each of these areas ensures that our entire organization is operating efficiently, effectively and sustainably.
#4: Helping us achieve an even higher level of excellence. At CareerStaff, we’re proud to employ the very best of the best — a standard that includes not just the nurses, clinicians, therapists, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals in our staffing network, but also the recruitment professionals who work with them. By giving clinicians access to great recruiters, we can secure better workers for your facility — and this certification helps ensure that we’ll continue to attract the industry’s most highly skilled and knowledgeable recruiters.
