Visiting Nurse Home & Hospice

Visiting Nurse Home & Hospice is Joint Commission accredited.  We’re pretty proud of that.  What does it mean?

The Joint Commission is a voluntary, independent outside accrediting agency that oversees standards and performance for a number of health care industries including home care.  Visiting Nurse Home & Hospice pays a substantial fee to be audited and accredited by this esteemed group.  Not all home care agencies invest in this oversight, but it is a level of trust and quality accreditation that is similar to the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval for domestic products.  More

What is the Joint Commission?

Clinicians at Visiting Nurse Home & Hospice were trained on handling delerium, dementia, and depression in home care patients as part of their cross-training on behavioral health funded by van Beuren Charitable Foundation.  Mary Jane Creely from Newport County Community Mental Health Center gave the presentation.
