Mountain Peak Recovery has the (JCAHO) Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations certification. They hold us to the highest standards on a national level, the same as hospitals are held to.
Look For The Gold Seal Of Approval
In order to become a JCAHO accredited Dual-Diagnosis Residential & Outpatient Rehab Care Center; Mountain Peak Recovery had to go through strict evaluations and guidelines by an expertly trained Joint Commission surveyor against their set of national standards.
In the end we were awarded the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval due to our ability to easily adhere to all policies and procedures required.
What Is JCAHO & How Does It Work?
Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission is dedicated to continuously improving the safety and quality of the nation’s healthcare providers through voluntary accreditation. JCAHO evaluates the quality and safety of care for more than 17,000 health care organizations.
To maintain and earn accreditation, organizations must have an extensive on-site review by a team of Joint Commission health care professionals, at least once every 3 years. The purpose of the review is to evaluate the organization’s performance in areas that affect your care and to ensure continual adherence to all the guidelines.
JCAHO is governed by a 29-member Board of Commissioners that includes physicians, administrators, nurses, employers, a labor representative, health plan leaders, quality experts, ethicists, a consumer advocate and educators. The Joint Commission standards address the organization’s level of performance in key functional areas, such as patient rights, patient treatment, medication, safety and infection control. The standards focus on setting expectations for an organization’s actual performance and for assessing its ability to provide safe as well as high quality care.
Consumers have the right to contact the JCAHO’s Office of Quality Monitoring to report any concerns or register complaints about a Joint Commission-accredited health care organization, or about those facilities seeking accreditation, by either calling 1-800-994-6610 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
