Indy-based Nurse Staffing Firm Earns Fifth National Gold Seal for Quality
October 26, 2016
INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (October 26, 2016) – Indianapolis-based RN & Allied Specialties , a nurse and allied professional staffing firm, was recently awarded its fifth consecutive Gold Seal for Quality by The Joint Commission, an achievement no other Circle City nurse staffing firm has done.
Joint Commission accreditation is the national gold standard for quality in health care. Each year, The Joint Commission performs nearly 21,000 comprehensive, independent evaluations of health systems, clinics and other healthcare entities. Its Health Care Staffing Services (HCSS) Certification Program focuses on a staffing firm’s ability to provide qualified and competent staffing services. Earning Joint Commission accreditation demonstrates a staffing firm’s commitment to a higher standard of service, something very important to clients.
In 2008, RN & Allied Specialties was the first staffing firm in Indiana to receive the esteemed Joint Commission Accreditation for Staffing Firms. Earning re-certification is even more challenging as The Joint Commission’s reviews are never scheduled in advance; reviewers just show up. Undaunted, RN & Allied Specialties has earned recertification in 2010, 2012, 2014 and now 2016.
“The Joint Commission is very demanding. Earning five-straight accreditations required that our nurses, allied health professionals, internal staff, and leadership to be their best, everyday, on behalf of our hospital clients and their patients. I am extremely proud of everyone,” said RN & Allied Specialties President Andy Lamberson.
Gold Seal status is also important to the company’s clients, which include Indiana’s largest health systems. “We have hospital and health system clients across the state who rely on RN & Allied Specialties to provide supplemental staffing on a full-time and day-to-day basis. They know nurses are critical to patient safety and quality care so they need nurses and allied professionals who can step in and deliver exceptional patient care and align with the client’s unique systems. Our clients have a high level of trust in us because we consistently meet expectations. The Joint Commission’s accreditation validates this,” Lamberson added.
An important side benefit of earning five consecutive Joint Commission accreditations is that it will help RN & Allied Specialties recruit new nurses and allied health professionals to the team. The firm has contracts available from Evansville to Crown Point and every Indiana city in between, proving that everyone loves a winner.
