Accreditation is like a report card for our organization. Accreditation Canada guides this process that uses a combination of self- assessments against nationally recognized standards for care and service and an external peer evaluation to accurately gauge our level of performance. Accreditation is completely voluntary and participating in this process enables us to live our Care Commitment by demonstrating Accountability and striving for Excellence.
Joseph Brant Hospital will experience their next on-site Accreditation survey with peer surveyors in spring 2014 and it remains one of the most effective ways for health service organizations to regularly and consistently examine and improve the quality of their services. By our participation in this process, we will be able to recognize and celebrate our strengths and successes as an organization and identify opportunities to improve care and services related to quality and patient safety.
