McLaren Bay Region awarded hospital accreditation from The Joint Commission

McLaren Bay Region today announced it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Hospital Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective patient care.

McLaren Bay Region underwent a rigorous, unannounced onsite survey in October 2017. During the review, a team of Joint Commission expert surveyors evaluated compliance with hospital standards related to several areas, including emergency management, environment of care, infection prevention and control, leadership, and medication management. Surveyors also conducted onsite observations and interviews.

The Joint Commission has accredited hospitals for more than 60 years. More than 4,000 general, children’s, long-term acute, psychiatric, rehabilitation and specialty hospitals currently maintain accreditation from The Joint Commission, awarded for a three-year period. In addition, approximately 360 critical access hospitals maintain accreditation through a separate program.

“Joint Commission accreditation provides hospitals with the processes needed to improve in a variety of areas from the enhancement of staff education to the improvement of daily business operations,” said Mark G. Pelletier, RN, MS, chief operating officer, Division of Accreditation and Certification Operations, The Joint Commission. “In addition, our accreditation helps hospitals enhance their risk management and risk reduction strategies. We commend McLaren Bay Region for its efforts to become a quality improvement organization.”

“The unannounced Joint Commission survey is a validation of our continuous improvement efforts,” said McLaren Bay Region Vice President/Chief Nursing Office Ellen Talbott. “Ongoing compliance with these Joint Commission standards results in day-to-day delivery of safe, high quality care. McLaren Bay Region is committed to maintaining processes for patients that are safe and meet high quality standards.”

The Joint Commission’s hospital standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. The standards are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help hospitals measure, assess and improve performance.
