BrightStar Care of Howard County MD Announces Joint Commission Accreditation
Date:9/11/2015

BrightStar Care of Howard County today announced that it has 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.

BrightStar Care of Howard County underwent a rigorous on-site survey in July 2015. 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 BrightStar of Howard County with education and guidance to help staff continue to improve its home care program’s performance.

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 by 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 they are capable of providing safe, high quality care. Accreditation by The Joint Commission and the Gold Seal serve as an indication that the organization has demonstrated compliance to these recognized standards of safe and quality care.”

"Your local home care agency in Columbia, MD is pleased to receive accreditation from The Joint Commission, the premier health care quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation,” added Max Minevich, President of BrightStar of Howard County. “Staff from across our organization continue to work together to strengthen the continuum of Senior Care in Columbia and to deliver and maintain optimal home care services for those in our community.”

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.
