Bon Secours hospitals are accredited by the Joint Commission International
The Bon Secours Health System recently became the first hospital group in the country to be re-accredited by Joint Commission International (JCI). JCI is an independent international organisation focused on improving the safety of patient care. JCI accreditation is a further indication of the Bon Secours Health System’s commitment to clinical excellence, cleanliness, patient care and cutting edge technology across all its facilities in Cork, Dublin, Galway and Tralee.
Why We Are Accredited?
The accreditation process is designed to create a culture of safety and quality within an organization that strives to continually improve patient care processes and results. In doing so, organizations:
- Improve public trust that the organization is concerned for patient safety and quality of care.
- Provide a safe and efficient work environment that contributes to worker satisfaction.
- Negotiate with sources of payment for care with data on the quality of care.
- Listen to patients and their families, respect their rights, and involve them in the care process as partners.
- Create a culture that is open to learning from the timely reporting of adverse events and safety concerns.
- Establish collaborative leadership that sets priorities for and continuous leadership for quality and patient safety levels
