 3/31/17 - Grand jury praises Ventura County Medical Center [Ventura County Star, Calif.]

March 30The Ventura County Medical Center received kudos for its performance in accreditation surveys in a recent Ventura County civil grand jury report.

The report by the civilian investigative panel praised the county-run hospital for its performance on surveys by a national accreditation entity called The Joint Commission that assessed physical environment, patient safety and care. The hospital was accredited for three years, the maximum amount, and also met norms in follow-up reports.

The grand jury singled out reviews involving surgical quality and bariatric surgery by the American College of Surgeons, as well as quality achievement awards from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

The grand jury commended the hospital for going beyond requirements in seeking independent review of their quality of care.

"The public has come to expect that grand jury reports will be critical in nature," Pamela Riss, forewoman of the grand jury, said in an email. "So in that way, this report appears unusual. However, our objective is always to learn the truth and share that information."
