Joint Commission Healthcare Staffing Services Certification

Independent Healthcare Staffing has been Awarded The Joint Commission Healthcare Staffing Services Certification

Independent Healthcare Staffing has achieved the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organization’s (The Joint Commission) Certification for Health Care Staffing Services. The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval recognizes our commitment to provide qualified and competent healthcare professionals who deliver high quality patient care.

Independent Healthcare Staffing is one of a select group of staffing companies to receive the Certification which was earned after the company underwent a formal evaluation process. The process included an on-site review of policies and procedures in all areas -- recruitment, background checks, credentialing, performance, continuing education, and overall competencies. Hospital and Traveler satisfaction was evaluated as well.

"Health care organizations that contract with Independent Healthcare Staffing can look to this certification as an assurance that this staffing firm demonstrates a commitment to providing and continuously improving quality services."
- Michele Sacco, Executive Director, Health Care Staffing Services Certification, The Joint Commission.

Our client hospitals are familiar with the Joint Commission and their processes, having experienced it first-hand themselves. Knowing that their travel staffing firm is held to the same quality standards as they are gives them a greater level of confidence in that staffing firm.

Our travelers feel even more confident working with us as they now have documented reassurance that they are working with a company committed to ongoing safety and quality patient care.

The Joint Commission certification program was launched in October 2004 to offer an independent, comprehensive evaluation of a staffing firm's abilities to provide competent staffing services. Its goal is to continuously improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public. An independent, not-for-profit organization, the Joint Commission is the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.
