Moorestown, NJ, Friday, 13 August 2019 – Excalibur Healthcare has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Ambulatory Health Care Accreditation. Demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards earns this distinction. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality. It reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.
Excalibur Healthcare underwent a rigorous, unannounced onsite review during June. During the visit, the Joint Commission reviewed and evaluated compliance with their Ambulatory Health Care standards. The review spanned several areas, including emergency management, environment of care and control, leadership and rights and responsibilities of the individual.
The Joint Commission’s standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and 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 surveyors 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. Pelletier is chief operating officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and chief nursing executive, The Joint Commission. “We commend Excalibur Healthcare for its continuous quality improvement efforts in patient safety and quality of care.”
