Renaissance Home Care Services Awarded Home Care Accreditation from the Joint Commission

Renaissance Home Care Services is proud to announce that they have earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Home Care Accreditation by 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 safe and effective care.

Renaissance Home Care Services underwent a rigorous onsite survey February 26 to 28, 2019. During the survey, compliance with home care standards reflecting key organization areas was evaluated, including the provision of care, treatment and services, emergency management, human resources, individual rights and responsibilities, and leadership. The accreditation process also provided Renaissance Home Care Services with education and guidance to help staff continue to improve its home care program’s performance.

“We are very pleased to receive this accreditation from The Joint Commission,” said Eileen Parenti, Executive Director of Renaissance Home Care Services. “All of our team members continue to work together to strengthen the continuum of care we offer and to deliver and maintain optimal home care services for those in our community.”

Established in 1988, The Joint Commission’s Home Care Accreditation Program supports the efforts of its accredited organizations to help deliver safe, high quality care and services. More than 6,000 home care programs currently maintain accreditation, awarded for a three-year period, from The Joint Commission.

“When individuals engage a home care provider, they want to be sure that provider is capable of providing safe, quality care,” said Margherita Labson, RN, MS, Executive Director, Home Care Accreditation Program, The Joint Commission. “As the home care setting becomes increasingly popular, it is important that home care providers are able to demonstrate that they are capable of providing safe, high quality care. Accreditation by The Joint Commission serves as an indication that the organization has demonstrated compliance to these recognized standards of safe and quality care.”

The Joint Commission’s home care standards are developed in consultation with health care experts, home care providers and researchers, as well as industry experts, purchasers and consumers. The standards are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help organizations measure, assess and improve performance.
