Building on a Successful Accreditation

Following our successful accreditation review in 2020 by The Commission for Accreditation of Christian Science Nursing Organizations/Facilities, Inc., the trustees have set goals to further our growth in these standards. The first goal is to be so thoroughly familiar with The Commission’s recommendations that they are the natural procedures for Noontide’s operations. Another goal is to conduct more of our board work through committees. The accreditation, governance, human resources, and MIOSHA committees have been of particular focus. A foundational governance training session in 2021 was a metaphysical talk by one of our trustees, Kate Dearborn, C.S.  The talk, “Ideas on Daily Defense” was an event on Zoom, hosted by Highridge House, a Christian Science Nursing facility in New York ( The Human Resource committee created or updated job descriptions for all our employees. Self-appraisal reviews, based on the Christian Science nursing qualities found in Mary Baker Eddy’s writings, were initiated for all staff and our board. A job search is underway to fill the Supervising Christian Science Nurse position by July 1, 2022. Our dedicated and treasured Christian Science nurse, Jeanne Troutman, may continue on in a part-time role after her retirement. A revised Christian Science nurse application form has been written, and employment ads have been placed on our website and in several Christian Science nursing organization publications. A Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) plan of operation has been implemented and a trustee monitors any updates and keeps the staff and board informed of any relevant changes. Our board added a cover sheet of healing citations from the Bible and Mary Baker Eddy’s writings to this plan, which correlates with the following statement, “Metaphysics resolves things into thoughts and exchanges the objects of sense for the ideas of Soul” (S&H, 269:14). In the fall of 2021 we began contracting relief Christian Science nurses to work four consecutive days a month, so our Supervising Christian Science Nurse would not have to be on call during her days off.  ■
