Urgent Nursing Resource, Inc. has achieved the Gold Seal of Approval for health care staffing services.  The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations has awarded Urgent Nursing Resource, Inc. the “Health Care Staffing Services Certification” for one year.

Urgent Nursing Resource, Inc. met national standards addressing how staffing firms determine the qualifications and competency of their staff, how they place their staff and then monitor staff’s performance.

“Health care organizations that contract with  Urgent Nursing Resource, Inc. can look to this certification as an assurance that Urgent Nursing Resource, Inc. demonstrates a commitment to providing and continuously improving quality services,” says Michele Sacco, executive director, Health Care Staffing Services Certification, Joint Commission.

The ongoing shortages of nurses, 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 certification program was launched in October 2004 to offer an independent, comprehensive evaluation of a staffing firm’s abilities to provide competent staffing services.

“Certification recognizes Urgent Nursing Resource, Inc.’s dedication to providing nurses that are qualified to provide safe, high-quality care to patients,” says Maureen Santa Ines, Director of Nursing, Urgent Nursing Resource, Inc.  “We’re  proud to receive the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval.”

Founded in 1951, the Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public through the provision of health care accreditation and related services that support performance improvement in health care organizations.  The Joint Commission evaluates and accredits more than 15,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States, including more than 7,800 hospitals and home care organizations, and more than 7,300 other health care organizations that provide long term care, assisted living, behavioral health care, laboratory and ambulatory care services.  The Joint Commission also accredits health plans, integrated delivery networks, and other managed care entities.  In addition, the Joint Commission provides certification of disease-specific care programs and primary stroke centers.  An independent, not-for-profit organization, the Joint Commission is the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.

Any individual or organization that has a concern about the quality and safety
of patient care provided by Urgent Nursing Resource's healthcare professionals, which has not been addressed by Urgent Nursing Resource's management, is encouraged to contact the Joint Commission at www.jointcommission.org or by calling the Office of Quality Monitoring at (630) 792 5636.
