Advantage RN has achieved the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organization’s 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.
Advantage RN 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. User satisfaction was evaluated as well.
“Health care organizations that contract with Advantage RN can look to this certification as an assurance that Advantage RN demonstrates a commitment to providing and continuously improving quality services,” says Michele Sacco, executive director, Health Care Staffing Services Certification, Joint Commission.
“Most of our client hospitals are familiar with the Joint Commission process having experienced it first-hand themselves,” commented Matt Price, President and CEO of Advantage RN. “Knowing that their nurse staffing company is held to the same quality standards as they are gives them a greater level of confidence in the agency.”
“Our nurses will feel more confident working with us,” says Dawn-Rider Carter, VP at Advantage RN. “They now have documented reassurance that they are working with a company committed to on-going 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.
