Hospital (US)
The validating process which determines whether a hospital meets a series of standards of quality in terms of physical plant, administration, and professional staffing. Most US hospitals are accredited by non-profit, professional “policing” organisations, such as The Joint Commission (formerly, the JCAHO), which was created to assure the public that a facility has met the accrediting organisation’s standards.

(1) The process through which a hospital Trust in the UK becomes a Practice Plus employer (PPE) under the Improving Working Lives framework. Each Strategic Health Authority/Workforce Development Confederation (SHA/WDC) is to have an accreditation team made up of representatives from the local HR and Trade Union community. This team will accredit organisations for Improving Working Lives and provide quality assurance across the SHA patch.
(2) The benchmarking by an external agency of an individual or organisation against defined criteria, which, if the criteria are met, result in the party being formally recognised as having met those criteria and deemed capable in those areas. The party must then meet the standards set by a Royal College in a particular specialty—for example, services providing electroconvulsive therapy must meet the standards set by the Royal College of Psychiatrists. If the standards are met satisfactorily the service is accredited by the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
