Accreditation and recognition by professional organizations are the foundations of quality assurance in healthcare. The hospitals of UCLA Health are fully accredited by The Joint Commission (TJC), the State of California, and they meet all National Patient Safety Goals. TJC accreditation is a voluntary process that looks at a hospital's health, quality and safety standards. TJC conducts on-site surveys to review areas that affect patient care.
Additionally, the LPS Designated Program at the Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital is accredited by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health.
An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission accredits and certifies more than 20,500 healthcare organizations and programs in the United States. Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization's commitment to meeting certain performance standards.
