South Mississippi State Hospital awarded joint commission accreditation

South Mississippi State Hospital has, once again, earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Behavioral Healthcare Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.

SMSH underwent a rigorous, unannounced on-site review March 25-27. During the visit, a team of Joint Commission reviewers evaluated compliance with behavioral healthcare standards spanning several areas including environment of care, infection prevention and control, leadership, medication management, and life safety, as well as other areas.
