National Seating & Mobility (NSM) has once again been awarded The Joint Commissions’ Gold Seal of Approval for Home Care Accreditation.
In an April 28 news announcement, NSM said the Gold Seal demonstrates “continuous compliance with [The Joint Commission’s] performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a healthcare organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.”
The accreditation process included “unannounced, on-site reviews at locations across the nation,” the news release added. “During these visits, a team of Joint Commission reviewers evaluated compliance with home care standards spanning several areas, including the provision of care, treatment and services, emergency management, human resources, individual rights and responsibilities, and leadership.
“The Joint Commission’s standards are developed in consultation with healthcare experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. They are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help healthcare organizations measure, assess and improve performance. The surveyors also conducted on-site observations and interviews.”
Bill Mixon, NSM’s CEO, said, “NSM is proud to be awarded home care re-accreditation from The Joint Commission. This honor reflects our organization’s long-standing commitment to the health and safety of our clients as we work to provide the solutions they need to move through life independently. As the only national Complex Rehab Technology provider across the country approved by The Joint Commission since 2006, we seek not only to ensure the highest-quality services for our clients, but to also encourage the prioritization of standards and measures of quality throughout the industry.”
