Saint Joseph Hospital, Lexington, KY, is the only facility in Kentucky to earn The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Disease Specific Care in Sepsis Certification. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects a commitment to providing safe, effective patient care.

Saint Joseph Hospital went through a rigorous on-site review in which Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with national disease-specific care standards and sepsis-specific requirements. They also assessed clinical practice guidelines and performance measures.

“Certification by the Joint Commission illustrates our commitment to a culture of excellence in serving our patients and community,” said Bruce Tassin, CEO, CHI Saint Joseph Health, and president, Saint Joseph Hospital.

The Joint Commission’s Disease-Specific Care Certifications are two-year awards that evaluate clinical programs across the continuum of care and address three core areas:

·         Compliance with consensus-based national standards

·         Effective use of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines to manage and optimize care

·         An organized approach to performance measurement and improvement activities
