EXCELLENCE IN HEALTHCARE STAFFING Rx relief® Receives Joint Commission Certification Six Years in a Row

August 27, 2014

Rx relief®, a leading pharmacy recruiting and placement firm, has been awarded the Gold Seal of Approval® for Health Care Staffing Services Certification from The Joint Commission. This is the sixth straight year Rx relief has achieved this distinction.


As part of the rigorous certification process, Rx relief underwent an on-site review of its compliance with national standards that assess how staffing firms determine the qualifications and competency of their staff, how they place their staff, and how they monitor their staff’s performance. Maintaining certification assures health care organizations that Rx relief is committed to providing and continuously improving quality services.


“Our RX relief brand is Joint Commission certified. This is a big deal in health care staffing,” says George Rogers, CEO of PrideStaff. “Certification requires a first-rate-run health business, and there is an on-site audit (with no advance notice) that our company must go through every two years to renew it.”


“Rx relief is proud to have earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval®,” says Carl Franklin, R. PH., Executive Vice President, Rx relief.  “Providing outstanding patient care with positive outcomes has always been our number one priority. The Joint Commission certification assures clients of our continued dedication to delivering pharmacy professionals who offer safe, high-quality care to patients.”


Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve health care for the public, in collaboration with other stakeholders, by evaluating health care organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value. The Joint Commission’s certification program, launched in October 2004, offers an independent, comprehensive evaluation of a staffing firm’s abilities to provide competent staffing services.
