AHS Staffing today announced it has earned a Health Care Staffing Services Certification from The Joint Commission demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing effective business services.
AHS Staffing underwent a rigorous onsite survey from November 14th through the 16th. During the review, a Joint Commission expert surveyor evaluated compliance with business standards related to several areas, including document and process control, risk reduction, and staff qualifications and competency. The surveyor also conducted onsite observations and interviews.
Health Care Staffing Services Certification firms undergo an announced initial review. Re-certification reviews are unannounced and are conducted on-site every other year. The review focuses on a firm’s ability to provide competent staffing services and evaluates performance, continuing education and training, placement criteria, and other areas.
“Joint Commission certification provides staffing agencies with the standards needed to excel in a variety of areas from candidate compliance to financial reporting,” said Mark Smith, CEO of AHS Staffing “We are pleased to receive Health Care Staffing Services Certification from The Joint Commission, the premier health care quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation.”
The Joint Commission’s Health Care Staffing Services (HCSS) Certification program provides an independent, comprehensive evaluation of a staffing firm’s ability to provide qualified and competent staffing services.
