Spokane Falls Recovery Center is proud to announce that we have earned the Joint Commission Committee’s Gold Seal of Approval. Joint Commission accreditation means that we have demonstrated compliance with the JCC’s national standards for health care quality and safety.
What Is the Joint Commission?
The Joint Commission is a not-for-profit, independent organization that was founded in 1951. It is the nation’s oldest, largest, and best-regarded body in the U.S. when it comes to setting standards for health care and accrediting healthcare providers.
The mission of the Joint Commission is to continuously improve public health care. This includes improving the quality of the care itself as well as improving access to health care. The main way in which the JCC does this is by evaluating healthcare organizations according to rigorous, nationally-recognized standards. These standards have been carefully constructed to inspire these institutions to excel in terms of both safety and efficacy of care. The Joint Commission evaluates nearly 20,000 organizations and programs in the United States alone.
The standards by which the Joint Commission evaluates healthcare organizations address a range of areas involving both patient care and facility management. The JCC has developed its standards with the help of healthcare professionals and providers and in consultation with patients.
To earn the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval, Spokane Falls Recovery Center has undergone a rigorous series of on-site inspections. To maintain this status, we will undergo the same every three years. The fact that the JCC has awarded Spokane Falls Recovery Center the Gold Seal of Approval demonstrates that we have been in continuous compliance with these rigorous criteria and is a testament to the quality of care we are dedicated to providing each client who walks through our doors.
The Benefits of Partnership with the Joint Commission
The most important aspects of the Joint Commission’s evaluative tools are the guidelines they demand healthcare organizations meet regarding patient safety and quality of care. When an alcohol rehab center like Spokane Falls Recovery Center earns accreditation, it should strengthen the confidence that clients and their families have in the organization and its services.
The focus of the Joint Commission’s work is to provide cutting-edge strategies to reduce risk to patients and improve an institution’s overall management. The aim is, naturally, to help healthcare providers like Spokane Falls Recovery Center improve their addiction treatment programs and services. These evaluations are provided both by on-site surveyors and by a facility’s self-reporting.
Another benefit of undergoing the Joint Commission evaluation and earning the Gold Seal of Approval is that it allows programs like ours to attract higher quality, better-qualified staff. Clinicians and medical staff understand that facilities with this designation from the JCC will present them with more opportunities to develop professionally and more opportunities to learn and practice their profession. The winners in all of this are, of course, the patients and their families.
Finally, it is becoming more common for insurance providers to require that healthcare organizations have accreditation of this type to participate in their networks. For this reason, drug addiction treatment centers that are accredited by bodies like the Joint Commission are more likely to be recommended by insurance companies.
