More About The Joint Commission
PsyCare voluntarily schedules three-day intensive surveys conducted by The Joint Commission every three years. The surveys include close examination of PsyCare policies and procedures pertaining to both clinical and administrative processes. The surveyor closely examines randomly selected patient records to ensure compliance with The Joint Commission standards for care and documentation of services.
The surveyor visits each office to evaluate compliance with safety standards and to interview staff members and willing clients. The Joint Commission also regularly updates its standards to reflect evolving national standards of care. An important aspect of The Joint Commission standards is demonstration of “Continuous Quality Improvement.”
This intensive review provides our clients and referral sources assurance of PsyCare’s commitment to the highest-quality care.
