The Willow Place and The Joint Commission
Seeing the need to demonstrate the quality of service offered at Willow Place, we sought to receive The Joint Commission accreditation. The Joint Commission accredits and certifies nearly 21,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality. Furthermore, it reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards.
What Does Accreditation by The Joint Commission Mean?
Without a standard for quality medical care, anyone can say they offer the best services and help available. Basically, The Joint Commission aims to set a high quality of care standards throughout the medical industry. Accreditation by The Joint Commission means having the health industry trust that our organization provides for all patient needs. To become accredited, an organization must prove that they’re eligible and qualified. This includes a process of reviewing data and how its inventory process, interviewing staff members, reviewing training materials and procedures, checking equipment and its maintenance, and a rigorous survey of the facility’s processes and daily structure.
The Dedication to the Highest Standards at Willow Place for Women
Through intensive and careful preparation, Willow Place developed and improved already existing standards of care. This way, we can offer the safest, most effective, and highest quality of care to all clients. Through this accreditation, patients can hold us to a greater standard than those who are have not yet received accreditation.
The Joint Commission reviews standards as they relate to Clinical Care, Environment of Care, Records of Care, Emergency Management, Infection Prevention and Control, Life Safety, Medication Management, Patient Safety Goals, Information and Human Resource Management, Leadership, Performance Improvement, and Rights and Responsibilities of the Individual. With the number of treatment facilities available, it’s important that patients can trust that the facility they choose offers the care they deserve. So, the accreditation through The Joint Commission gives our patients the peace in mind knowing that our facilities, services, team members, and resources have been verified to provide all a patient may need during their time in our care.
Certainly, the goal of Willow Place is to ensure all our clients receive the best possible care. Through the implementation of The Joint Commission standards, we are able and proud to offer each woman the quality of care they deserve.
