Message from CEO

Meet Judith Atkins, RN, MSN President/CEO

Welcome to our website! It has been our pleasure to assist healthcare organizations to achieve excellence in regulatory and accreditation endeavors. We not only study the standards, we also study how the surveyors interpret the standards.

Our story begins years ago when I was a Chief Nurse for the first time. Surveys were attended, standards were reviewed, and action plans were created. When the surveyors arrived, we were sure we were ready. The surveyor must not have attended the same seminars or studied the same standards.

That is when it clicked. It is not what the standards say, it’s how the surveyors interpret them. We began a journey of studying the habits of the North American Surveyor and have combined that with a study of the standards to inspire our clients to exceed in regulatory and accreditation endeavors.
