DLH Corporation has again earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Health Care Staffing Services (HCSS) 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.
DLH underwent a rigorous, unannounced recertification review on December 10, 2020. The Joint Commission reviewer evaluated compliance with HCSS standards spanning several areas including leadership, competency assessment, and clinical staff performance evaluation.
“DLH is proud to have once again achieved HCSS certification from The Joint Commission, the nation’s premier quality improvement and accrediting institution,” said Kevin Wilson, President of DLH’s Health & Logistics Services operating unit. “This certification demonstrates our commitment to accountability, safety, and efficiency in providing vital health operations solutions to our customers and improving health outcomes for the patients they serve.”
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. The reviewer conducted observations and interviews.
DLH initially sought and achieved The Joint Commission HCSS Certification in 2018. The HCSS Certification period lasts for 2 years. To maintain readiness for recertification, DLH ensured policies and practices were in place to ensure we provide customers qualified, competent clinical staff. DLH participated in performance improvement activities to help ensure we deliver high quality care.
