The prized "Gold Seal of Approval"
Mother's Touch Obtained "Deemed" Status From The Joint Commission (TJC) to be effective July 28th, 2016. Deemed Status Is The Highest Level Of Accreditation And Approval Available From TJC Which Is The Number One Health Care Accrediting Organization In The Nation. TJC Is The Top Medicare Contractor For Accrediting Medicare Providers. A Medicare Provider Cannot Be Licensed Without The Approval Of An Accrediting Organization Such As TJC. Such Providers As The Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, M. D. Anderson, And Virtually All The Top Providers In The Nation Were Accredited By TJC.
Since Mother's Touch Is Much Smaller Than All Of The Before-Mentioned Companies And Since We Feel Mother's Touch Not Only Meets, But Exceeds, TJC Standards, Mother's Touch Chose on April 16th, 2018 To Reallocate The Resources Needed To Maintain TJC Accreditation To Efforts Related to Maintenance and Improvement of Patient Care.
However, Below Is Some Of The Mother's Touch Information That Was Listed On TJC Website For Mother's Touch From July 28th, 2016 to April 16th, 2018.
10 Thinks to Know About Hospice
The Mother's Touch Way
Mother's Touch is a locally owned and operated hospice dedicated to providing the highest level of personalized and patient-focused care possible for those with a life-limiting medical condition and their families. We utilize a family/interactive approach to care centered around the specific needs and desires of each patient. One of the things that make us unique is the level of personalized attention and service we provide to each individual patient without exception.
A statement of Spirituality – Mother’s Touch is a non-denominational entity which strongly supports the faith & spirituality beliefs of our patients and families. We encourage them to feel free to express their faith as an integral part of the end-of-life process. Our staff is able to share in a quiet moment or prayer if the patient or family so chooses. Unlike larger hospices, we do not take faith out of the hospice experience nor do we advocate for it with you. As with all aspects of our services it is up to you how we best serve you.
As of the fall of 2017 Mother's Touch is one of only a few hospices in are region (Wichita and surrounding area per below-map) to have "Deemed" Status with The Joint Commission. This is the highest level of "Accreditation" that can be achieved. It is sought by the Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic and other organizations of the highest quality. We have earned "The Gold Seal of Approval" just as has those organizations. See information on The Joint Commission and Mother's Touch Quality Report with the links provided above.
