National Quality Approval
The following is a summary of what this group is and how their accreditation works as noted in their Quality Report User Guide:
Joint Commission health care professionals visit the organization, interview staff and patients, and view records and procedures. The performance of the organization is judged against The Joint Commission’s standards and related expectations. The Ambulatory Care Facility must meet or exceed these stringent Joint Commission performance requirements in order to achieve or maintain accreditation. The performance of the health care organization is then monitored on an on-going basis through several mechanisms.
The Joint Commission’s standards set forth performance expectations that address the safety and quality of patient care–that is, areas in which good performance is likely to lead to good outcomes for patients. The standards specifically cover issues that are important to consumers such as:
- Administration of medication
- Evaluation and appropriate treatment of pain
- Sufficient staffing and staff training
- Infection control
This report is an indication of how dedicated Dr. Nav Sharda, MD is to providing the absolute best of care for his patients.
