VNA Care Recognized for Commitment to Exceptional Patient Care by The Joint Commission

VNA Care has once again earned the Gold Seal of Approval for home health and hospice care from The Joint Commission, the nation's preeminent health care accreditation and standards-setting organization.

"I'm incredibly proud of our staff's dedication to making a difference in people's lives. Whether it's helping someone regain the ability to walk again after hip replacement surgery or easing the pain of a terminal illness, VNA Care's staff provides the best possible care to patients and their loved ones," said Holly Chaffee, MSN, BSN, RN, president and CEO of VNA Care.

During the re-accreditation process, VNA Care underwent a rigorous, unannounced onsite review. A team of Joint Commission reviewers evaluated compliance with home health and hospice care standards spanning several areas including documentation of patient care, infection control, policies, and procedures. Surveyors also accompanied VNA Care home health and hospice clinicians on patient visits.

VNA Care has maintained accreditation from The Joint Commission for many years as part of its continuous quality improvement efforts in patient safety and quality of care. The Joint Commission's standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts, and patients. They are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help health care organizations measure, assess, and improve performance.
