Staten Island University Hospital (SIUH) Prince’s Bay has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® and the American Stroke Association’s Heart-Check mark for Primary Stroke Certification.
SIUH Prince’s Bay underwent a rigorous onsite review in August.  During the visit, a team of Joint Commission reviewers evaluated compliance with related certification standards including the use of evidence-based guidelines for stroke care, adoption of standardized performance measures, composition of the program’s interdisciplinary team, program’s mission and scope of services, stroke policies, EMS protocols, and imaging capabilities.
Joint Commission standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts and patients. The reviewers also conducted onsite observations and interviews.
“Primary Stroke Certification recognizes health care organizations committed to fostering continuous quality improvement in patient safety and quality of care,” says Mark Pelletier, RN, MS, chief operating officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and chief nursing executive, The Joint Commission. “We commend SIUH Princes’ Bay for using certification to reduce variation in its clinical processes and to strengthen its program structure and management framework for stroke patients.”
“We congratulate SIUH Prince’s Bay for this outstanding achievement,” says Nancy Brown, chief executive officer, the American Stroke Association. “This certification reflects its commitment to providing the highest quality of care for stroke patients.”
“SIUH Prince’s Bay has been the main hospital for the South Shore of Staten Island for many years,” said Yasir El-Sherif, director of the Stroke Services at SIUH. “Now with the Joint Commission certification we will be able to provide top quality care in Stroke to the residents of Staten Island. Our multidisciplinary team is composed of a rather large number of Staten Islanders who are dedicated to helping elevate Neuroscience care to their family, friends and fellow Staten Islanders by constantly driving safety, quality, and compassionate care.”
SIUH’s journey towards the Primary Stroke Certification ramped up two years ago with the creation of a core group and framework led by their stroke program. This team, comprised of multidisciplinary clinical providers and administrative leaders, focused on certification standards, clinical practice guidelines, process improvements, performance measures, and outcomes all while establishing a consistent approach to stroke care.
