Novus Medical Detox Awarded Accreditation From The Joint Commission
Novus Medical Detox recently announced the news that the New Port Richey facility received The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval.
New Port Richey, FL (PRWEB) July 15, 2013
Novus Medical Detox, one of the only Florida-based detox centers serving high-dosage prescription drug abuse patients across the U.S., has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety. The accreditation award extends for a period of three years and recognizes Novus’ dedication to maintaining The Joint Commission’s advanced criteria.
Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission is a nonprofit tax-exempt 501(c) organization that evaluates and accredits more than 20,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. Accreditation by The Joint Commission, the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in healthcare, is widely recognized by a majority of state governments.
Recently, a team of The Joint Commission expert surveyors measured Novus’ treatment methods against the standards of care specific to the needs of patients served, including infection prevention and control, leadership, and medication management. Novus Executive Director Kent Runyon feels that the accreditation will allow Novus to broaden its reach and help more people get their lives back—which is the epitome of Novus’ culture.
"The Joint Commission accreditation is a demonstration of our commitment to the highest standards in our field. We are pursuing excellence and believe that the process of becoming accredited not only strengthens our program but also provides our patients with additional confidence about our ability to provide quality services," said Runyon. "This is a stamp of approval that we are proud to have earned."
Spearheading the fight against substance abuse, Novus opened its doors with the purpose of fixing the detox process to ensure that anyone could overcome addiction comfortably. The detox center handles the toughest of drug and alcohol cases, many who are rejected from other facilities as “too high a risk.”
Novus’ proprietary I.V. vitamin cocktail is tailored to each individual’s needs to replenish nutrients lost during drug abuse, allowing them to treat high-dose patients with minimal pain. By paying particular attention to strengthening patients’ bodies during the detox process via proprietary medical protocols, the medical staff at Novus say this aspect is the difference between detox being “too painful to confront” and people successfully getting their lives back.
By pursuing and maintaining compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for healthcare quality and safety, Novus is now recognized for its commitment to providing quality care and clinical expertise.
