The Joint CommissionPosted: 7/11/2012
I am looking for a JACHO accrediated facility in Lancaster, CA for my mother
Nursing Home Inspector is a research tool here on Carepathways and a great place to begin searching. The National Institute on Aging also features a research instrument on their site.
Most facilities market their Joint Commission certification; many include CARF. It is unclear if you are looking for dementia care. Once you have a list of facilities, simply inquire about their certification. Also ask about their survey and any plan of correction. While you are at it, examine their state survey as well.
Best of luck; thanks for writing in.
