2012 LMH Laboratory Awarded Accreditation from The Joint Commission

2012 LMH Laboratory Awarded Accreditation from The Joint Commission The Joint Commission has granted the Gold Seal of Approval® to the Licking Memorial Hospital (LMH) Laboratory in 2012. Accreditation is awarded to healthcare organizations that successfully meet high standards of quality and safety. 

 
The LMH Laboratory’s performance was evaluated in complying with nearly 300 standards, including quality control, safety, infection control, leadership, management of human resources, management of information and ongoing performance improvement activities. The laboratory evaluations are conducted every two years through an unannounced, independent on-site survey. This process ensures that the results are true evidence of ongoing daily practices. “We continually strive to improve the quality of our services, and meeting The Joint Commission’s rigorous national standards is strong validation of our team efforts,” said Lorei Reinhard, B.S., MT(ASCP), SH, Director of LMH Laboratory. “However, those efforts to improve don’t stop when the survey is over,” she continued. “Meeting the standards and achieving excellence is a continuous process.”
 
Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission is dedicated to continuously improving the safety and quality of the nation’s healthcare through voluntary accreditation. The organization provides accreditation services for health care organizations, including general, psychiatric, children’s and rehabilitation hospitals, nursing homes and independent laboratories
