Omaha, NE (PRWEB) July 05, 2012
Aureus Medical Group, a national leader in healthcare staffing, is proud to announce that it has renewed its Healthcare Staffing Services Certification with the Joint Commission, earning a Gold Seal of Approval(TM).
Aureus Medical was certified with no negative observations or findings cited – an outstanding achievement.
An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission accredits and certifies more than 19,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards. Its mission is to continuously improve healthcare for the public and inspire healthcare organizations to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value.
As a component of the certification protocol, Aureus Medical underwent an unannounced onsite inspection/review of processes, procedures, and competencies of healthcare staff as they relate to the Joint Commission standards for company leadership, human resources and information management, customer service, and performance improvement.
Onsite evaluations are conducted every two years with comprehensive online audits taking place in the interim. Monthly quality monitoring data is required to be submitted to the Joint Commission on an ongoing basis.
"We are very pleased to, once again, be recognized by the Joint Commission with the Gold Seal of Approval,” said Craig Wolf, Vice President, Aureus Medical Group. “As one of the top staffing firms in the country, certification signifies our commitment to the highest level of standards in the healthcare staffing industry and our unwavering dedication to our clients, employees, and patient care."
Aureus Medical was one of the first healthcare staffing firms in the nation to become Joint Commission certified in 2005 and has successfully renewed its certification continually since that time.
Aureus Medical is a division of Omaha-based C&A Industries, Inc.
