Congratulations CMS on a Successful Joint Commission Re-certification!

Posted: & Filed Under: News

We are very pleased to announce that we have been re-certified with The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Health Care Staffing Services Certification. The certification demonstrates our commitment to providing qualified and competent health care professionals.

Yesterday, Chesapeake Medical Staffing underwent a un-announced rigorous onsite visit. The Joint Commission Reviewer evaluated compliance with national standards that assess how we determine the qualifications and competency of staff, how we assign staff, and how we monitor performance. All certified health care staffing organizations are required to collect data on their own performance.

Health care staffing firms place temporary staff in organizations that direct or provide patient care. Established in October 2004, Health Care Staffing Services Certification, awarded for a two-year period, offers an independent and comprehensive evaluation of a staffing firm’s abilities to provide competent staffing services.

“Chesapeake Medical Staffing has demonstrated its commitment to providing quality health care staffing services to health care organizations as evidenced by its achievement of Joint Commission certification,” said Patrick Phelan, executive director, Hospital Business Development, The Joint Commission. “We recognize and commend Chesapeake Medical Staffing for its efforts to provide a safe, high-quality standard of service.

We are very pleased to receive continued certification from The Joint Commission, the premier quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation. We have been successfully re-certified every 2 years since our initial review in 2008. Health Care Staffing Certification demonstrates our commitment and accountability to clients and to the health care professionals we employ. Certification establishes, defines and measures delivery on key functional areas and performance measures across the entire industry.

Thank you to the entire team of administrative professionals at Chesapeake Medical Staffing who are responsible for this success. Your efforts and excellence are sincerely appreciated.
