The Joint Commission

 

The Joint Commission is an independent, not-for-profit organization established more than 50 years ago to set the standards by which health care quality is measured in America and around the world. It is governed by a board that includes physicians, nurses, and consumers. To maintain and earn accreditation, organizations must have an extensive on-site review by the Joint Commission team to evaluate the organization’s performance in areas that effect patient care.

Gibson Area Hospital & Health Services was last surveyed in October of 2007 receiving the full accreditation status with no recommendations for improvement issued. Our organization will be accredited for three years from the last survey. The Laboratory has surveys every two years with the last being in January of 2009. These surveys are now unannounced.

The public may contact the Joint Commission’s Office of Quality Monitoring to report any concerns or register complaints dealing with quality or patient safety by calling 1-800-994-6610 or emailing at complaints@jointcommission.org.
