Healdsburg District Hospital announced it has earned The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval for Laboratory Services Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its perfor- mance standards. The hospital is owned by the residents of the North Sonoma County Healthcare District, which includes Windsor, Healdsburg, Geyserville and Cloverdale. The Gold Seal of Approval is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization's com- mitment to providing safe and effective patient care. A Healdsburg District Hospital press release states that the hospital underwent a rigorous onsite survey in December. During the review, a joint commission expert surveyor evaluated compliance with laboratory standards related to several areas, including document and process centrol, ;: healthcare associated condi- tions, risk reduction and staff qualifications and competen- cy. The surveyor also conduct- ed onsite observations and interviews. The joint commission has accredited hospital laboratory services since 1979 and free- standing laboratories since 1995. More than 1,500 organiza- tions, including laboratories in hospitals, reference labs, blood transfusion and donor centers, public health labora- tories and point-of-care test sites currently maintain labo- ratory services accreditation from the joint commission, awarded for a two-year cycle. "Joint commission accredi- tation provides laboratories with the processes needed to improve in a variety of areas from specimen collection to result reporting," said Heather Hurley, executive director of laboratory busi- ness development, the joint commission. "We commend Healdsburg District Hospital for its :efforts to have laboratory services contribute and support the overall health care delivery system." "I am very proud of the quality demonstrated by the laboratory manager, Nancy Thompson, and the entire lab- oratory staff, in the recent joint commission survey inspection. It was the best per- formance that I have seen in my 30-year career as a labora- tory director and pathologist," said Steve C. Mertens, M.D. "Healdsburg District Hospital is pleased to receive accreditation from the joint commission, the premier health care quality improve- ment and accrediting body in the nation," added Joseph P. Harrington, CEO of the hospi- tal. "Pathologists and other, laboratory staff continue to work together to develop and implement approaches and strategies that have the poten- tial to improve care for the patients in our community." submitted by Jake Fowler gOW Commencing May 1, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) and Marin County Fire will require a burn permit for any outdoor open burning in State Responsibility Areas (SRA) in Sonoma and other north bay counties. State Responsibility Areas are generally the unincorporated, rural, grass, brush and timber covered lands. Individuals who conduct open burning must keep the fire size within the issued per- mat requirements, at all times. All open burn- ing permit requirements include continual monitoring of the fire by an adult, a mini- mum clearance of at least 10 feet to bare min- eral soil around the fire, adequate control resources (tools, water, etc.) and do not burn on a windy day. require Failure to maintain control of an open fire will result in the permit being voided and the permit holder charged with the possibility of being responsible for fire suppression cost, civil damages and fines. CAL FIRE burn permits are in addition to any air quality control district and local fire agency permits. CAL FIRE chiefs remind res- idents, "Open burning requires local landowners, to do their due diligences to insure they are meeting all conditions set forth by authorizing agencies prior to con- ducting an open burn."
