At Garrett County Memorial Hospital we are proud to be a Joint Commission accredited organization. Joint Commission standards address the organization’s level of performance in key functional areas, such as patient rights, patient treatment, and infection control. The standards focus not simply on an organization’s ability to provide safe, high quality care, but on its actual performance as well. Standards set forth performance expectations for activities that affect the safety and quality of patient care. If an organization does the right things and does them well, there is a strong likelihood that its patients will experience good outcomes. The Joint Commission develops its standards in consultation with health care experts, providers, measurement experts, purchasers, and consumers.
We pride ourselves in providing high quality care to our patients. If you feel that you have an issue with patient care or safety, please contact our Risk Management Department at (301) 533-4390. If the problem is not resolved you may contact the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations at www.jointcommission.org.
