Cariant Health Partners has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Health Care Staffing Services Certification by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.
This certification demonstrates our efforts to address how qualifications and competencies of staff are determined, placement of staff and how their performance is monitored.
Cariant underwent a rigorous, unannounced onsite review on November 19, 2019. During the visit, a team of Joint Commission reviewers evaluated compliance with related certification standards. Joint Commission standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. The reviewers also conducted onsite observations and interviews.
“Health Care Staffing Services Certification recognizes health care staffing firms committed to fostering continuous quality improvement in patient safety and quality of care,” says Mark Pelletier, RN, MS, chief operating officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and chief nursing executive, The Joint Commission. “We commend Cariant Health Partners for using certification to strengthen its program structure and management framework, as well as to enhance its staff recruitment and development processes.”
“I’m incredibly proud of our team for achieving this industry-recognized certification for the tenth straight year,” says Division Manager Tracey Duke. “We not only passed our audit with zero deficiencies, but our team came together quickly and efficiently to also implement new documents and processes that will improve the credentialing experience for our travelers.”
