  • Einstein Medical Center Montgomery Earns Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval® For Hip and Knee Joint Replacement

    Published: 03/27/2014


    Einstein Medical Center Montgomery has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Hip and Knee Joint Replacement by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety.

    Einstein Montgomery underwent a rigorous on-site review where a Joint Commission expert evaluated the hospital for compliance with standards of care specific to the needs of patients and families, including infection prevention and control, leadership and medication management.

    Orthopedic surgeons at Einstein Montgomery offer expertise in full and partial hip and knee replacement using cutting-edge, minimally invasive surgical options. There is a self-contained inpatient unit designed and equipped for the post-operative joint patient, complete with a rehabilitation gym. The unit also includes a simulated home environment with a bed, stairs, shower and tub, kitchen, and car, all designed to help patients regain strength and mobility by doing activities of daily living. In addition, nurse navigators coordinate patients’ care from office to hospital to home in a seamless transition.

    “Achieving Joint Commission certification for hip and knee joint replacement is wonderful recognition of our commitment to providing patients with the highest level of care,” says Beth Duffy, Chief Operating Officer for Einstein Medical Center Montgomery.

    The Joint Commission’s Disease-Specific Care Certification Program, launched in 2002, is designed to evaluate clinical programs across the continuum of care. Certification requirements address three core areas: compliance with consensus-based national standards; effective use of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines to manage and optimize care; and an organized approach to performance measurement and improvement activities.
