Joint Commission Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations
Premier Nursing Services has received another mark of support. The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations granted Premier Nursing a Gold Seal of Approval™ for Healthcare Staffing Services effective December 2005, for the company’s efforts in providing high caliber of quality nurses that deliver safety and quality care to patients, at our highly respected Client Hospitals.
"Achieving accreditation demonstrates that Premier Nursing Services has voluntarily sought an independent evaluation of its compliance with state-of-the-art performance standards," says Michele M. Sacco, MS Executive Director of Health Care Staffing Services Certification, Joint Commission.
The Joint Commission is widely considered among the country's most respected healthcare accrediting bodies. Premier Nursing received the Gold Seal after a lengthy certification process based on nationally recognized healthcare standards. The healthcare staffing company voluntarily submitted itself to accreditation.
After providing jobs and healthcare to the Southern California community for 20 years, Premier Nursing Services is extremely proud of the distinction granted by the Joint Commission.
Premier Nursing Services is celebrating its 20-year anniversary, and we are proud that this benchmark was made possible, by the high caliber of quality nurses working through Premier Nursing Services, at our highly respected Client Hospitals.
We are planning to maintain our certification for years to come. We will always be committed to providing the highest level of qualified nurses to deliver excellent patient care. We are pleased that we received the gold seal, because it is an honor for our company to be distinguished by others.
Nurses have devoted their lives to caring for others. Nurses make a difference every day in the lives of patients and their families. We should honor nurses’ dedication and we applaud their commitment to providing a better quality of life for the sick, elderly and disabled. Premier Nursing Services honors our nurses by becoming JCAHO certified. Our nurses deserve it.
By providing high leadership, human resource management and performance standards to its client hospitals, Premier Nursing helps contribute to the overall health quality of Southern California hospitals.
Achieving national accreditation from the Joint Commission signifies an organization's commitment to achieving and maintaining safe, high quality care for patients, residents and all individuals served.
Premier Nursing Services like to extend its thanks to the Joint Commission for their continuing effort to provide accountability in the healthcare industry.
An independent, not-for-profit organization, the Joint Commission is the predominant standards-setting and accrediting body in healthcare. Founded in 1951, the Joint Commission has developed state-of-the-art standards for outpatient ambulatory care organizations since 1975.
The Joint Commission began offering staffing Services certification in 2004 to oversee staffing quality. This need arose from ongoing shortages of nurses and other professional personnel. These shortages require health care organizations to fill positions with temporary employees provided by staffing firms like Premier Nursing.
"Certification recognizes Premier Nursing Services' dedication to providing nurses that are qualified to provide safe, high-quality care to patients," says Sam Osman, Administrator, "We're proud to receive the Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval."
Founded in 1951, the Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public through the provision of health care accreditation and related services that support performance improvement in health care organizations. The Joint Commission evaluates and accredits more than 15,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States, including more than 8,200 hospitals and home care organizations, and more than 6,800 other health care organizations that provide long term care, assisted living, behavioral health care, laboratory and ambulatory care services. The Joint Commission also accredits health plans, integrated delivery networks, and other managed care entities. In addition, the Joint Commission provides certification of disease-specific care programs and primary stroke centers. An independent, not-for-profit organization, the Joint Commission is the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.
