Accreditations and Certifications
Critical Access Hospital Accreditation
To earn and maintain accreditation, a CAH must undergo an on-site survey by a Joint Commission survey team. Joint Commission surveys are unannounced and occur 18 to 36 months after the previous full survey. The Joint Commission survey process examines the hospital’s acute, swing bed and outpatient services in one integrated on-site review. The Joint Commission survey process is data-driven, patient-centered and focused on evaluating actual care processes. The objectives of the survey are not only to evaluate the organization, but to provide education and “good practice” guidance that will help staff continually improve the organization’s performance.
