Eden Esthetics is accredited by JCAHO
What does that mean for you?
The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the levels of safety and quality of services in the health care industry. Since 1951, the accreditation granted by JCAHO has been recognized as a symbol of quality within the field of health care services. JCAHO's board is comprised of doctors, nurses, medical directors and consumers. JCAHO sets the standards that measure the quality of services for health care in America and around the world. On an ongoing basis, groups of doctors, nurses and representatives of organizations that provide services for health care meet to review these standards and provide recommendations for additions and improvements to these requirements. JCAHO's mission is to continuously improve the safety and quality of the care provided to the public through the accreditation of health care and related services that support performance improvements in the health care industry.
What is accreditation?
Accreditation means that Eden Esthetics has volunteered to receive a full and rigorous assessment by JACHO and has made an extra effort to revise and improve the key factors involved in your care that may affect the quality and safety of the service. Accreditation by JCAHO is considered the gold standard in health services. Hospitals have been evaluated by JCAHO for over 50 years. Eden Esthetics is accredited in the same way that the hospitals in your community have been.
Doctors and nurses from JCAHO personally visited this facility to carry out an inspection, and see how well your staff:
- provides a safe atmosphere for your care
- educates you about the risks and options for diagnosis and treatment
- protects your rights as a patient, including your right to confidentiality
- evaluates your condition before, during and after diagnosis and treatment
- protects against infection
- plans for emergency cases
