TriHealth’s Good Samaritan Hospital, Cincinnati, OH, announced today that is the first hospital in the Midwest and the third in the country to earn The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Brain Tumor Certification. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective patient care. Good Samaritan Hospital underwent a rigorous on-site review in which Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with disease-specific care standards and brain tumor-specific requirements. They also assessed clinical practice guidelines and performance measures.
Joint Commission Certification provides an opportunity for staff to develop their skills and knowledge. Achieving certification provides the clinical team with common goals and a concrete validation of their combined efforts.
