Wellspring Nurse Source Awarded Health Care Staffing Services Certification From The Joint Commission
June 2016 – Wellspring Nurse Source announces that it has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Health Care Staffing Services Certification. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing qualified and competent health care professionals.
Wellspring Nurse Source underwent a rigorous on-site review in May of 2016. Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with national standards that assess how health care staffing firms determine the qualifications and competency of staff, placement of staff, and how they monitor performance. All certified health care staffing organizations are required to collect data on their own performance.
Health care staffing firms place temporary staff in organizations that direct or provide patient care. Established in October 2004, Health Care Staffing Services Certification, awarded for a two-year period, offers an independent and comprehensive evaluation of a staffing firm’s ability to provide competent staffing services.
“Wellspring Nurse Source is pleased to receive certification from The Joint Commission, the premier quality and accrediting body in the nation, added Melissa Peirce, Senior Partner at Wellspring Nurse Source. “Health Care Staffing Certification demonstrates our commitment and accountability to our clients and to the health care professionals who choose to work with us. Certification establishes, defines and measures delivery on key functional areas and performance measures across the entire industry. We strive to deliver excellence in our services to our clients and employees every day.”
