(PRWEB) August 12, 2014
Aureus Medical Group, one of the largest healthcare staffing firms in the nation, is proud to announce that it has renewed its certification with the Joint Commission, earning a Gold Seal of Approval(TM). Aureus Medical is an affiliate of C&A Industries, Inc., a national leader in staffing and recruitment.
An independent, not-for-profit organization, the Joint Commission accredits and certifies more than 20,500 healthcare 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. It seeks to continuously improve healthcare for the public by evaluating healthcare organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value.
As part of certification protocol, Aureus Medical underwent 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 off years. Monthly quality monitoring data is required to be submitted to the Joint Commission on an ongoing basis.
“As one of the largest healthcare staffing firms in the country, we strive each day to maintain the highest level of quality and standards that our client facilities and patients expect and deserve. It’s a priority across our organization and to be recognized by the Joint Commission is something we are very proud of,” said Craig Wolf, vice president, Aureus Medical.
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.
