Gold Seal of Approval® represents high quality of care
Wyomissing, Pa. – Two non-profit organizations of Home Health Care Management (HHCM), Berks Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) and Visiting Nurse Association of Pottstown and Vicinity (Pottstown VNA), have earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Home Care Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s performance standards.
“This accreditation is a testament to the unsurpassed level of medical skills we’ve built so we can better serve communities in Berks, Montgomery, and Chester County,” said Constance Morrison, president and CEO, HHCM. “I couldn’t be prouder that all three of Home Health Care Management’s non-profits make up some of the few home care organizations that are JC accredited in Central PA.”
The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects the non-profits’ commitment to providing safe and effective care. To receive the accreditation, Berks VNA and Pottstown VNA underwent rigorous onsite surveys, where compliance with home care standards reflecting key organization areas was evaluated. It focused on their provision of care, treatment and services, emergency management, human resources, individual rights and responsibilities, and leadership.
Berks VNA and Pottstown VNA join Advantage Home Care, another of HHCM’s non-profit organizations, and more than 6,000 home care programs with current accreditation. The new accreditation will last for three years.
“Now that all of Home Health Care Management is accredited, we want to set a new bar for home health care and hospice care in our region. I’m pleased to lead by example,” said Morrison.
