Excellence recognized for providing safe and quality patient care through staffing services
DENVER, September 8, 2021 ─ Freedom Healthcare Staffing (Freedom), a rapid response healthcare staffing agency that provides experienced, high-quality nurses, allied professionals and clinical practitioners to facilities across the nation, announces it has again been awarded a two-year Health Care Staffing Services certification by The Joint Commission. The Joint Commission is the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accreditation body in health care.
The Joint Commission notes that its Health Care Staffing Services (HCSS) certification “gives staffing agencies an independent, comprehensive evaluation of their ability to offer expert staffing services. Health care staffing firms seek certification because it demonstrates their commitment to delivering a higher standard of service.”
Freedom Healthcare Staffing has been a recipient of The Joint Commission’s Health Care Staffing Services certification since 2007.
“I have a tremendous amount of respect for The Joint Commission and the rigor that they expect from health care organizations,” said Susan Whitman, executive vice president of Freedom Healthcare Staffing. “As an independent organization they keep the bar high, and we, too, strive to keep the bar high.”
According to The Joint Commission website, to become certified, health care staffing firms undergo an on-site review to determine their compliance with national consensus-based standards. This includes a review of key areas such as the processes used for matching the skills of temporary staff with a health care organization’s needs, assessing, demonstrating and maintaining competencies, communication processes, background and health screening checks, and other processes.
