The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects our agency’s commitment to providing safe and effective care.

To earn this high honor, our agency underwent a rigorous onsite survey, during which our compliance with home care standards, including our provision of care, treatment and services, emergency management, human resources, individual rights and responsibilities, and leadership was evaluated. The accreditation process also provided LightHouse Healthcare with education and guidance to help our staff continue to improve our performance.

“When individuals engage with a home care provider, they want to be sure that provider is capable of providing excellent care,” said Margherita Labson, RN, MS, executive director, Home Care Accreditation Program, The Joint Commission. “As the home care setting becomes increasingly popular, it is important that home care providers are able to demonstrate that they are able to provide safe, high quality care. Accreditation by The Joint Commission serves as an indication that the organization has demonstrated compliance to these recognized standards of safe and quality care.”

“LightHouse Healthcare is pleased to receive accreditation from The Joint Commission, the premier health care quality improvement and accrediting body in the nation,” added Peggy Taylor, MSN, RN, VP of Operations for LightHouse Healthcare.  “Staff from across our organization continue to work together to strengthen the continuum of care and to deliver and maintain optimal home care services for those in our community.”

The Joint Commission’s home care standards are developed in consultation with health care experts, home care providers and researchers, as well as industry experts, purchasers and consumers. The standards are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help organizations measure, assess and improve performance.
