St. Clare Commons Earned Nursing Care Center Accreditation from the Joint Commission

CHI Living Communities St. Clare Commons announced it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Nursing Care Center 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 and resident care.

The Gold Seal of Approval®

“The Gold Seal of Approval® is not mandatory for nursing homes.  Rather it shows St. Clare Commons has a commitment to quality care by going above and beyond what is mandated,” explained Michael Freeman, Executive Director of St. Clare Commons.

St. Clare Commons underwent a rigorous on-site January survey.  During the review, Joint Commission expert surveyors evaluated compliance with nursing care center standards related to several areas, including assistance with activities of daily living, coordination of care, and staff education and training.  Surveyors also conducted on-site observations and interviews with leaders and staff of the organization.

Staff Works Together to Provide Quality Patient Care

“Joint Commission accreditation provides nursing homes with a framework for the processes needed to improve the care patients and residents receive,” said Gina Zimmerman, MS, executive director, Nursing Care Center Accreditation Program, The Joint Commission.  “We commend St. Clare Commons for its efforts to become a quality improvement organization.”

“St. Clare Commons is pleased and excitied to receive accreditation from The Joint Commission, the premier health care quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation,” added Freeman.  “Staff across the organization continue to work together to develop and implement approaches and strategies that have the potential to improve care for our patients and residents.”
