SHEFFIELD — On second look, Helen Keller Hospital was given a clean bill of health by the Joint Commission.
The hospital recently underwent a follow-up survey to inspect citations noted from a March visit by the Joint Commission, and hospital CEO Doug Arnold said the second check revealed no citations.
The Joint Commission is a national not-for-profit accrediting agency that accredits more than 19,000 health care facilities in the United States.
In March, the agency cited Helen Keller for 36 compliance issues. The commission has 1,779 standards it reviews for hospitals.
As a result of those citations, the hospital was subject to a follow-up survey on just the areas of concern listed in the previous report.
“The reviewer found no issues,” Arnold said.
