WESTMINSTER — CCGH accredited by health-care group

WESTMINSTER -- Carroll County General Hospital has been awarded a three-year accreditation from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health-care Organizations (JCAHO).

This is the maximum period of accreditation allowed.

In compliance with JCAHO inspection criteria, surveyors analyzed the policies of every clinical department and nursing unit; reviewed hospital and committee reports; and examined medical staff procedures.

They also interviewed employees and physicians and spoke with individual patients about the care they received during their hospital stay.

Reviewers found that CCGH complied with the commission's national standards for excellence.

Formed in 1951, the Joint Commission is dedicated to improving the quality of the nation's health care through voluntary accreditation.

CCGH achieved its accreditation after a team of reviewers conducted an extensive on-site survey in June.
