Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center and Rutland Nursing Home are accredited
by the Joint Commission. As part of the accreditation process, the Joint
Commission conducts unannounced accreditation surveys of Kingsbrook Jewish
Medical Center and Rutland Nursing Home.
The purpose of the survey is to evaluate each organization’s compliance
with the nationally established Joint Commission standards. The survey
results will be used to determine whether, and the condition under which,
accreditation should be awarded to the organization.
Joint Commission standards deal with organization quality, safety-of-care
issues, and safety of the environment in which care is provided. Anyone
believing that he or she has pertinent and valid information about such
matters should first contact the organization’s management. If the
concerns cannot be resolved through the hospital, the individual is encouraged
to contact the Joint Commission.
Requests for a public information interview must be made in writing and
should be sent to the Joint Commission’s Office of Quality Monitoring.
The request must indicate the nature of the information to be provided
at the interview. Such requests should be addressed to:
