At Attention Plus Care, we have made a strong commitment to giving safe, high quality health care to our clients. We are continually working to improve the services and care we provide. This is why we have chosen to be accredited by the Joint Commission. As an accredited agency, we follow the Joint Commission standards which specify requirements to ensure that our client care and services are provided in a safe manner. To earn and maintain accreditation, we must undergo an on-site survey by a Joint Commission surveyor periodically.
The Joint Commission has been accrediting health care organizations since 1951. Chances are the hospital you trust to your care is accredited by the Joint Commission. In 1988, the Joint Commission established a Home Care Accreditation Program which identifies standards to guide home care organizations on how they administer care and continuously improve performance. Joint Commission Accreditation helps us organize and strengthen our client safety efforts. The Joint Commission standards focus on state-of-the-art performance improvement strategies that help us continually improve the safety and quality of care we provide.
If you are hoping to use your insurance to cover the cost for home care services, your insurance company may require you to receive your services from an accredited home care company like Attention Plus Care. This requirement is in place to assure the insurance company that you are receiving reliable and safe care. Maintaining a high level of quality and compliance with the latest standards is what you get when you work with an accredited home care agency.
