Health Carousel has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Health Care Staffing Services Certification by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.
“This certification is incredibly important to us as an organization because it underlines our mission to improve lives and make healthcare work better,” said Earl Dalton, Chief Nursing Officer of Health Carousel. “Our organization makes a direct impact on patient lives and earning The Joint Commission Certification holds us accountable to the highest standard of care.”
Health Care Staffing Services Certification demonstrates Health Carousel’s efforts to address how qualifications and competencies of staff are determined, placement of staff and how their performance is monitored.
Health Carousel underwent a rigorous, unannounced review on May 11-12. During the review, a team of Joint Commission reviewers evaluated compliance with related certification standards including clinical quality, process improvement, business continuity and fulfilling the promise. Joint Commission standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. The reviewers also conducted onsite observations and interviews.
Beyond earning this certification, this is the 5th certification in a row that The Joint Commission found zero issues for Health Carousel to address. That is 10+ years of excellence.
“Health Care Staffing Services Certification recognizes health care staffing firms committed to fostering continuous quality improvement in patient safety and quality of care,” says Mark Pelletier, RN, MS, chief operating officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and chief nursing executive, The Joint Commission. “We commend Health Carousel for using certification to strengthen its program structure and management framework, as well as to enhance its staff recruitment and development processes.”
