BrightStar of Austin, a full-service Austin healthcare staffing agency that provides both medical and non-medical Austin homecare, has been accredited by The Joint Commission, a not-for-profit organization that accredits and certifies more than 18,000 healthcare organizations and programs in the United States.

By demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission's national standards for healthcare quality and safety, the BrightStar location in Austin has earned The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval™. The accreditation is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization's commitment to meeting certain performance standards.

"In becoming accredited, BrightStar was evaluated against a set of national standards by a Joint Commission team of surveyors, experienced in the delivery of home care services,"" said Margherita Labson, executive director of Home Care Accreditation for the Joint Commission. "Achieving accreditation demonstrates BrightStar's commitment to provide high quality and safe care to its patients."

"We make a significant investment in quality on a day-to-day basis from the top down and we went after accreditation for our organization because we want to be the best and we view obtaining Joint Commission accreditation as another step toward excellence," said Chad McCall, owner of BrightStar of Austin.

McCall noted that accreditation is attainable only through the cooperation and communication among staff members. "Everyone here at BrightStar plays a valuable role in working to meet the standards. I think it gives them a feeling of prestige to work in an accredited organization," McCall said. "They also appreciate the educational aspect of the survey and the opportunity to interact with The Joint Commission team."

Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission is dedicated to continuously improving the safety and quality of the nation's healthcare through voluntary accreditation. BrightStar of Austin received the accreditation award after The Joint Commission found that it had demonstrated compliance with The Joint Commission's national standards for home care organizations. The on-site survey occurred in May.
