GE Healthcare Life Sciences today announced that its Radiopharmacy Services division has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ for accreditation by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety.[i] GE Healthcare’s national network of 31 Radiopharmacies are accredited as part of The Joint Commission’s Home Care Accreditation program. GE Healthcare is now among a select group of accredited organizations offering pharmacy dispensing services and achievement of this milestone recognizes the Company’s dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission’s standards.

“By achieving The Joint Commission’s accreditation, we have demonstrated compliance in all areas of operation including compounding, dispensing, medication management, environment, health and safety,” said Rich DeVeau, General Manager, Pharmacy Operations, GE Healthcare Life Sciences. “Joint Commission accreditation provides us a framework to take our organization to the next level and helps create a culture of excellence. Achieving and maintaining these compliance standards are a priority at GE Healthcare pharmacies and is a major step toward maintaining excellence and continually improving the services we provide.”

To achieve Joint Commission accreditation, GE Healthcare’s Radiopharmacy Services underwent a series of rigorous system-wide on-site surveys across its 31 sites. A team of Joint Commission expert surveyors subsequently evaluated GE Healthcare for compliance with standards of care specific to the needs of patients, including infection prevention and control, and medication management. GE Healthcare’s Radiopharmacy Services dispense unit dose radiopharmaceuticals in a clean room environment constructed to comply with both USP <797> and ISO 14644-1 standards. GE Healthcare utilizes a quality assurance program and specifications for testing to routinely monitor clean room environment and personnel to assure that compounded sterile products are prepared in accordance with USP <797> standards.

"In achieving Joint Commission accreditation, GE Healthcare has demonstrated its commitment to the highest level of care for its patients," says Margherita Labson, R.N., Executive Director, Home Care Accreditation, The Joint Commission. “Accreditation is a voluntary process and I commend GE Healthcare for successfully undertaking this challenge to elevate its standard of care and instill confidence in the community it serves.”
