Bassett Receives Gold Medal Award From Joint Commission

Bassett Medical Center earns The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Hospital Accreditation for demonstrating continuous compliance with the commission’s performance standards. To earn the award Bassett underwent a rigorous, unannounced onsite survey earlier this year by a team of Joint Commission expert surveyors who evaluated compliance with hospital standards related to several areas, including environment of care, infection prevention and control, leadership, medication management, and emergency management. The surveyors also traced the patient experience by observing care provided in the hospital and by speaking with patients, doctors, nurses, and other staff who interact with patients.
