The Joint Commission Re-Certifies Somnia Anesthesia for Health Care Staffing Services
Somnia Anesthesia, a national anesthesia practice management and perioperative medicine company, once again has achieved The Joint Commission’s (TJC) Certification for Health Care Staffing Services. Voluntarily undergoing an onsite evaluation prior to earning certification is a strong indicator that Somnia meets national industry standards.
Earning TJC’s Gold Seal of Approval™, the staffing industry’s gold standard, provides Somnia with a rigorous framework that not only helps them improve and measure their procedures and processes, but also assures clients that Somnia’s anesthesia providers are credentialed and fully competent to perform their jobs. It is important to note that compliance with these standards is intended to improve the quality of health care and increase patient safety.
“Health care organizations that contract with Somnia Anesthesia can look to Joint Commission certification as an assurance that Somnia demonstrates a commitment to providing and continuously improving quality services,” says Patrick Phelan, executive director, Health Care Staffing Services Certification, The Joint Commission.
The comprehensive evaluation examines four areas: Leadership, Human Resource Management, Performance Measurement and Continuous Improvement, and Information Management.
“Certification recognizes our team’s longstanding dedication to engaging the highest quality anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, and registered nurses,” says Melissa S. Garcia, Somnia Anesthesia’s senior director of Ambulatory Operations and National Credentialing. “We are proud to have repeatedly earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ and enthusiastic about our future.”
