Joint Com­mis­sion

The Joint Com­mis­sion con­ducts accred­i­ta­tion sur­veys of Ivin­son Memo­r­i­al Hos­pi­tal on an unan­nounced basis, in order to eval­u­ate the hos­pi­tal’s com­pli­ance with nation­al­ly estab­lished Joint Com­mis­sion Stan­dards. The sur­vey results will be used to deter­mine whether, and under the con­di­tions which, accred­i­ta­tion should be award­ed the hospital.

Joint Com­mis­sion stan­dards deal with orga­ni­za­tion­al qual­i­ty of care issues, as well as the safe­ty of the envi­ron­ment in which care is pro­vid­ed. As a patient, fam­i­ly mem­ber, per­son­al care­giv­er, patient advo­cate, com­mu­ni­ty rep­re­sen­ta­tive, med­ical staff or employ­ee of Ivin­son Memo­r­i­al Hos­pi­tal, you have the right to noti­fy the Joint Com­mis­sion regard­ing any qual­i­ty of care or safe­ty con­cern in the hos­pi­tal that the hos­pi­tal has not addressed. Any­one believ­ing that he or she has per­ti­nent and valid infor­ma­tion about such mat­ters that have not been addressed and/​or resolved by the hos­pi­tal or the hos­pi­tal’s man­age­ment is encour­aged to con­tact the Joint Com­mis­sion. Con­cerns should be direct­ed to:
