Maury Regional Medical Center recertified for Total Hip and Knee Replacement from The Joint Commission


COLUMBIA, Tenn. — Maury Regional Medical Center has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Total Hip and Knee Replacement Certification 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.  

The certification, offered in collaboration with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, focuses on the pre-surgical orthopedic consultation to the intraoperative, hospitalization or ambulatory surgical center admission, rehabilitation activities and follow-up visit with the orthopedic surgeon. Maury Regional Medical Center’s total hip and total knee program has been certified by The Joint Commission for more than ten years.

“From the time that a patient and their orthopedic surgeon determine that hip or knee replacement surgery is needed, our team of physicians and orthopedic professionals are committed to ensuring the best possible outcomes,” said Maury Regional Health CEO Davin Turner, DO. “We are pleased that this team’s continual focus on quality and safety has resulted in recertification for our hip and knee replacement programs.”

Earlier this year, Maury Regional Medical Center underwent a rigorous onsite review of the programs offered for hip and knee replacement. During the visit, the Joint Commission reviewer evaluated compliance with related certification standards such as infection prevention and control and medication management. The reviewer also conducted onsite observations and interviews.

“Total Hip and Knee Replacement 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 Maury Regional Medical Center for using certification to reduce variation in its clinical processes and to strengthen its program structure and management framework for orthopedic patients.”

Hip and knee replacement procedures are performed by orthopedic surgeons on the medical staff at Maury Regional Medical Center. Surgeons evaluate patients to determine the type of procedure that best meets the patient’s individual needs. Patients who are scheduled for hip or knee replacement complete education before their surgery to learn more about preparing for surgery and what to expect during the recovery process.
