    Adviso Publico

    The Joint Commission will conduct unannounced accreditation surveys of Hamilton Medical Center, Hamilton Home Health and Hamilton Hospice.

    The purpose of the survey will be to evaluate the organization's compliance with nationally established Joint Commission standards. The survey results will be used to determine whether, and the conditions under which, accreditation should be awarded the organization. Joint Commission standards deal with organizational quality of care issues and the safety of the environment in which care is provided.

    You have the right to address any concerns about patient care and safety in the hospital that the hospital has not addressed.

    Step 1: You are encouraged to contact the hospital’s management through the switchboard. From a patient room dial ‘0’. From outside the hospital dial (706) 272-6000. Ask for the Administrator On Call.

    Step 2: If the concern cannot be resolved through the hospital, you are encouraged to contact the Joint Commission’s Office of Quality and Patient Safety to report any patient safety event or concern about a Joint Commission-accredited health care organization.  You may phone, email, fax or mail your concern.  Phone:  1-800-994-6610; Email: patientsafetyreport@jointcommission.org; Fax:  630-792-5636; Mail:  Office of Quality and Patient Safety, The Joint Commission, One Renaissance Blvd., Oakbrook Terrace, IL, 60181.
