The Joint Commission on Accreditation’s Web site features Quality Check, which allows you to check the performance and accreditation status of a healthcare facility, whether it’s a hospital, a surgery center, a nursing home, or another type of healthcare organization. You can search by the facility’s name or location to see whether it is accredited. If you are searching by location, enter a zip code rather than a city for more accurate results.
Quality Check gives you information about an organization’s current accreditation status, accreditation history, and its latest performance report, which shows you how it compares with other national organizations in specific performance areas. You can see what the deficiencies are, if any, and whether earlier deficiencies have been resolved.
