Accreditation assures the public that patient safety is top priority in a facility. An accredited facility must comply with the most stringent set of applicable standards available in the nation and meet our strict requirements for facility directors, medical specialist certification and staff credentials. It also must pass a thorough survey by qualified Quad A surveyors.
Why should you choose an accredited facility?
Facilities accredited by Quad A have taken additional steps to foster a safe environment for your health care. An accredited facility demonstrates compliance with our strict requirements for the facility, as well as its directors, physicians, medical specialists and others. They also must pass a thorough onsite survey by a qualified Quad A surveyor.
Patient safety is an ongoing effort. To remain accredited, our facility must complete periodic self-surveys as well as undergo formal onsite re-surveys by a qualified surveyor. Many facilities must also partake in a peer review process in which other active members within the outpatient health care profession conduct a review. Accreditation alone cannot guarantee a positive outcome, however, it provides a level of assurance that a facility has taken action to help make patient safety a primary focus.
