This staffing firm provides notices to its publics that when an individual has any concerns about patient care and safety and the staffing firm has not addressed them, he or she is encouraged to contact the staffing firm’s management.
If the concerns cannot be resolved through the staffing firm, the individual is to be encouraged by the staffing firm to contact The Joint Commission.
Advantage On Call has achieved the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organization’s Certification for Health Care Staffing Services. The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval recognizes our commitment to provide qualified and competent healthcare professionals who deliver high quality patient care.
Advantage On Call is one of a select group of staffing companies to receive the Certification which was earned after the company underwent a formal evaluation process. The process included an on-site review of policies and procedures in all areas — recruitment, background checks, credentialing, performance, continuing education, and overall competencies. User satisfaction was evaluated as well.
“Most of our client hospitals are familiar with the Joint Commission process having experienced it first-hand themselves,” commented Matt Price, President and CEO of ARN Healthcare Staffing, Advantage On Call’s parent company. “Knowing that their healthcare staffing company is held to the same quality standards as they are gives them a greater level of confidence in the agency.”
The Joint Commission certification program was launched in October 2004 to offer an independent, comprehensive evaluation of a staffing firm’s abilities to provide competent staffing services. Its goal is to continuously improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public. An independent, not-for-profit organization, the Joint Commission is the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.
