)-- Integrated Resources, Inc has achieved the Gold Seal of Approval™ for health care staffing services from The Joint Commission.
Integrated Resources, Inc underwent an unannounced, on-site review of its compliance with national standards addressing how staffing firms determine the qualifications and competency of their staff, how they place their staff, and how they monitor staff’s performance. “Health care organizations that contract with Integrated Resources, Inc can look to this certification as an assurance that Integrated Resources, Inc demonstrates a commitment to providing and continuously improving quality services,” says Michele Sacco, M.S., executive director, Health Care Staffing Services Certification, Joint Commission.
The ongoing shortages of nurses, rehabilitation professionals, pharmacists and other health care professionals have forced health care organizations to increasingly fill positions with temporary workers through contractual arrangements with staffing firms. The Joint Commission’s certification program, launched in October 2004, offers an independent, comprehensive evaluation of a staffing firm's abilities to provide competent staffing services. “Certification recognizes Integrated Resources, Inc’s dedication to providing rehabilitation professionals and nurses, that are qualified to provide safe, high-quality care to patients,” says Andy Kadiwar, President, “We’re proud to receive the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™.”
