Ninety-nine percent of diabetes management is self care, with the goal
of preventing complications that can lead to hospitalization. However,
in the event complications develop, the community is in good hands.
Late last year, The Joint Commission granted certification for Torrance
Memorial’s Inpatient Diabetes Care program.
The Joint Commission is an independent, not-for-profit organization that
accredits and certifies more than 19,000 healthcare organizations and
programs in the United States.
The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval™ is a clear sign
that certified programs have demonstrated compliance with the most stringent
standards of performance.
