At Western Health we are committed to high quality care that is safe, person-centred, right and co-ordinated – we are committed to Best Care.
The National Safety and Quality for Health Service (NSQHS) Standards, developed by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care, support us to Live Best Care every day.
Health Services are required to be independently assessed for compliance against the 2nd edition of these Standards.
External Accreditation Surveyors are due to visit Western Health in March 2020 to assess our application of the Standards.
They will spend 60% of their time in patient care areas observing how we deliver Best Care in line with the Standards.
In the ‘Accreditation; Know Your Standards’ learning package, you’ll gain an overview of the Standards and how each relates to Best Care at Western Health.
Becoming familiar with the Standards is an important step in preparing for Accreditation Survey.
