Front Range Hospice and Joint Commission Standards Part 1

Front Range Hospice and Joint Commission Standards

 Front Range Hospice is the first privately owned Joint Commission Accredited Hospice in Colorado. This means that we have voluntarily agreed to meet a standard that is significantly higher than required by the State or Federal Government. We chose to do this to ensure you and your family that you were choosing a hospice that stands for quality care.  The Joint Commission accreditation focuses on patient and staff safety and that is why we have chosen to make it an active part of Front Range Hospice. 

Why accreditation?

Accreditation is a periodic external evaluation by recognized experts that

provides impartial evidence of the quality of care delivered to patients.

Preparing for accreditation affords your organization the opportunity for an

in-depth review of its patient safety and care delivery processes. Achieving

accreditation demonstrates your organization’s ongoing commitment to

safeguard your patients, staff and brand.

Why Joint Commission accreditation?

Reputation and Recognition

Nationally recognized by CMS for hospice Medicare certification, we are

the only accreditor currently recognized for the maximum six year term

(renewed in 2009). We are also recognized by many states for licensure

requirements.

Our recognitions can help you:

• Reduce duplicative surveys

• Minimize staff interruptions

• Position your business for growth

• Ensure compliance with state regulations

• Meet payer and referral source requirements

Unique Perspective

As the only accreditor to represent the entire continuum of care, our

accredited hospices are immediately recognized for their deep abiding commitment

to quality end of life care. Achieving our coveted “Gold Seal of

Approval” can better position your hospice as a quality-oriented partner

within care transition teams and among emerging accountable care organizations.
