Marshall Receives ReAccreditation From Joint Commission

Marshall has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.

The Joint Commission assessed Marshall for compliance with the Medicare conditions for hospitals through the Joint Commission’s deemed status survey process. Marshall was granted an accreditation decision of Accredited, which was effective February 1, 2020.

Marshall Home Care was also assessed by the Joint Commission for compliance to the Medicare conditions of home health agencies. The Joint Commission granted Marshall Home Care an accreditation decision of Accredited, with an effective date of January 31, 2020.

Kathy Krejci, Chief Nursing Office for Marshall says, “Marshall is committed to the continuous quality improvement of patient care. In part, this is done through evaluating daily work to the Joint Commission Standards and best practice and making improvements based on the results of the evaluation.” This proactive approach fosters an environment that is focused on providing quality care that meets the needs of our patients. The Joint Commission’s award of Accredited validates Marshall’s dedication to providing patient-centered quality care.

The Joint Commission’s standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. They are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help health care organizations measure, assess and improve performance. The surveyors also conducted onsite observations and interviews.

“As a private accreditor, The Joint Commission surveys health care organizations to protect the public by identifying deficiencies in care and working with those organizations to correct them as quickly and sustainably as possible,” says Mark Pelletier, RN, MS, chief operating officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and chief nursing executive, The Joint Commission. “We commend Marshall for its continuous quality improvement efforts in patient safety and quality of care.”
