StoneSprings Hospital Center has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Hospital Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards.
“StoneSprings Hospital Center is pleased to receive accreditation from The Joint Commission, the premier health care quality accrediting body in the nation,” stated Karen Harris, the hospital’s vice president of Quality. “This accreditation demonstrates our dedication to providing the highest quality care in a safe environment for our patients.”
StoneSprings Hospital underwent an unannounced onsite survey October 17-19, 2018. During the review, a team of Joint Commission 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’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.
