The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs has spoken . . .
“Please be advised, that if you are a Health Care Service Firm registered
with the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, you must be accredited with an
accrediting body approved by the Commissioner of the Department of Human Services.”
What does this mean for you?
Caregiver Training Advisor, Victoria Brown has the answer!
Victoria says . . .
If you’re in the State of New Jersey, this means an additional level of oversight through an accreditation agency. For those in other states, this indicates the possibility for a future accreditation requirement. For now, accreditation is a fantastic way for you to stand out among your competition. Hold yourself to a higher standard and follow New Jersey’s lead!
How is this different from previous licensing requirements in New Jersey?
According to the State of New Jersey Department of Human Services Office of Licensing, “Licensing is a legally mandated government function designed to ensure the protection of persons served by regulated programs. Accreditation is a private, voluntary function designed to promote recognition of program quality. Accrediting bodies usually require programs to be licensed before they can become accredited. For some types of programs, the Office of Licensing may substitute the standards of the accrediting body for certain selected licensing regulations.” Accreditation requirements vary from agency to agency. As private entities, updates to accreditation requirements do not require legal procedures.
