Cure 4 The Kids Foundation successfully renewed their Accreditation from The Joint Commission
LAS VEGAS, NV, August 1, 2021 – Cure 4 The Kids Foundation has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® 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.
Cure 4 The Kids Foundation underwent a rigorous, unannounced onsite review on July 14-16, 2021. During the visit, Joint Commission surveyors evaluated compliance with standards spanning several areas including infection prevention, environment of care, emergency management, medication management, etc. The Joint Commission’s standards are developed in consultation with health care experts, healthcare providers, measurement experts, and patients. They are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help health care organizations measure, assess and improve performance. The surveyor also conducted onsite observations and interviews.
“As a private accreditor, The Joint Commission surveys health care organizations to protect the public by identifying deficiencies in care and working with those organizations to correct them as quickly and sustainably as possible,” says Mark Pelletier, RN, MS, chief operating officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and chief nursing executive, The Joint Commission. “We commend Cure 4 The Kids Foundation for its continuous quality improvement efforts in patient safety and quality of care.”
“Cure 4 The Kids Foundation strives for clinical excellence every day and our recent Joint Commission survey reflects how hard our team works to provide the best care possible for our patients and families. Obtaining Joint Commission Accreditation is not easy to accomplish in an outpatient ambulatory care setting because we are not a large organization, so everything gets inspected and evaluated for the three full days the surveyor is with us. Our team exemplified our commitment to provide safe and exceptional care with our recent inspection.” Tamara Saldana, RN, BSN, Manager of Clinical Services and Quality
Our organization prepared for The Joint Commission survey by participating in mock surveys, audits, trainings, and education programs. We also gave the team Joint Commission Readiness Guides that contained lots of common Joint Commission standards and explanations on how our organization meets those standards.
