EvergreenHealth Inpatient Diabetes Care awarded advanced certification from The Joint Commission for third year

EvergreenHealth announced that its Inpatient Diabetes Care has maintained its prestigious advanced certification from The Joint Commission and meets the highest national standards for inpatient diabetes care. Inpatient Diabetes Care has upheld advanced certification since December 2011 and demonstrates EvergreenHealth’s commitment to exemplary health care quality and safety within EvergreenHealth’s diabetes education and nutrition services.

“Recognition like the certification from The Joint Commission is another proof point of the hard work and dedication of the providers, nurses, staff and volunteers across our organization. Their collaboration to earn this certification, now for the third consecutive year, exemplifies EvergreenHealth’s commitment to be our community’s best partner in health,” said EvergreenHealth CEO Bob Malte.

Inpatient Diabetes Care brings together prevention programs, expert care, support groups and classes to guide patients through their health journey, whether they are newly diagnosed or need some help along the way.

Joint Commission experts evaluated EvergreenHealth’s Inpatient Diabetes Care for compliance with the requirements for The Joint Commission’s Advanced Certification, developed in conjunction with the American Diabetes Association, including staff education, blood glucose monitoring protocols, plans for the treatment of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia, data collection of incidences of hypoglycemia and patient education.
