Highest Standard of Care
The goals of joint replacement surgery are to relieve pain and to resume normal activities. But what’s the right joint replacement program for you? Major consideration should be given to programs recognized by The Joint Commission.
The Joint Commission awards certification to programs that are committed to a higher standard of service. Choosing a joint replacement program that has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® ensures compliance in three specific areas, including:
- Compliance with consensus-based national standards
- Effective and consistent use of appropriate, evidence based clinical practice guidelines for the hip, knee or shoulder replacement
- Collection and analysis of a minimum of four performance measures specific to the hip, knee or shoulder replacement patient population
Having earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval®, Fort Walton Beach Medical Center has demonstrated a higher commitment to service and an assurance of quality awarded for a standard of practice followed by the physicians, nurses and physical therapists who dedicate themselves to the care of patients receiving joint replacement surgery.
