Last week, with great pleasure and excitement, we at Cross Shores Care Center were proud to announce that we have earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Nursing Care Center Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards! This Gold Seal of Approval is a symbol of quality that reflects our organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective patient and resident care.

Is that cool or what? I have never been more proud of a team of people than I have been of everyone that works here. On May 9 we went through a rigorous on-site survey. During this review a Joint Commission expert surveyor evaluated compliance with nursing care standards related to several areas, including assistance with activities of daily living, coordination of care, and staff education and training. Surveyors also conducted on-site observations and interviews with leaders and staff of the organization. I’ll tell you what; they went through here with a fine tooth comb!

What does all this mean? Our community has some great bragging rights on how well we take care of our elders! Our Care Center is committed to developing strategies that have the potential to improve care and we do it so well! We are all so proud to serve our elders, our community, our friends, and our family. Remember to treat everyone with importance and always be kind.
