Ethos Medical Staffing awarded Health Care Staffing Services Certification from The Joint Commission
Lenexa, Kan. — Ethos Medical Staffing has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Health Care Staffing Services Certification 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.
Health care staffing firms place temporary staff in organizations that direct or provide patient care. Health Care Staffing Services Certification demonstrates Ethos’ efforts to address how qualifications and competencies of staff are determined, placement of staff and how their performance is monitored.
Ethos underwent a rigorous, unannounced onsite review. During the visit, a team of Joint Commission reviewers evaluated compliance with related certification standards including program management, supporting self-management, and delivering and facilitating clinical care. Joint Commission standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. The reviewers also conducted onsite observations and interviews.
“Health Care Staffing Services Certification recognizes health care staffing firms committed to fostering continuous quality improvement in patient safety and quality of care,” says Mark Pelletier, RN, MS, Chief Operating Officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and Chief Nursing Executive, The Joint Commission. “We commend Ethos for using certification to strengthen its program structure and management framework, as well as to enhance its staff recruitment and development processes.”
“Accreditation and certification by The Joint Commission is considered the gold standard in health care, and this is the third Joint Commission survey in a row that we’ve passed,” said Jeff Stoner, EMBA, BSN, RN, CCRN, Founder & CEO for Ethos. “We strive to provide the greatest quality of care and safety within our organization, and we’re proud to be accredited for an additional two years.”
