Good Sam gets a Gold Seal

Good Samaritan Hospital has earned the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for hospital accreditation.

 

The approval is a symbol of G-S-H’s commitment to providing effective patient care.

Hospital officials say approval came following a rigorous, unannounced survey back in April. Commission members evaluated compliance with hospital standards, including emergency management, environment of care, infection prevention and control and medication management. The Gold Seal of Approval is awarded for a three-year period. The Joint Commission’s hospital standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients.
