.RIGHT ACCORD Private Duty-Home Health Care today announced that for the second time 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.

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, M.S., 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 and the gold seal serve as an indication that the organization has demonstrated compliance to these recognized standards of safe and quality care.
