The Joint Commission sets the standards by which health care quality is measured in America and around the world.

To maintain and earn accreditation, a hospital undergoes an extensive on-site review by a select team of Joint Commission professionals such as administrators, physicians and nurses at least once every three years. The purpose of the review is to evaluate the hospital's performance in areas that affect patient care.

Through an assessment of a hospital’s processes and personal visits with its patients and staff, the hospital is evaluated and scored. Accreditation may then be awarded based on how well the hospital met Joint Commission standards.

If you feel your concerns have not been addressed or resolved by the hospital, you may contact the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations directly.
