JOINT COMMISSION- WHO WE ARE
Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission is dedicated to continuously improving the safety and quality of the nation’s healthcare through voluntary accreditation. The Joint Commission’s on-site survey of Recovery Ways occurred in June.
The Joint Commission evaluates the quality and safety of care for more than 17,000 health care organizations. To maintain and earn accreditation, organizations must have an extensive on-site review by a team of Joint Commission health care professionals, at least once every three years. The purpose of the review is to evaluate the organization’s performance in areas that affect your care. The Joint Commission is governed by a 29-member Board of Commissioners that includes physicians, administrators, nurses, employers, a labor representative, health plan leaders, quality experts, ethicists, a consumer advocate and educators. Joint Commission standards address the organization’s level of performance in key functional areas, such as patient rights, patient treatment, medication, safety and infection control. The standards focus on setting expectations for an organization’s actual performance and for assessing its ability to provide safe, high quality care.
