Quality of Care

Accreditation is one of the most effective ways for health service organizations to regularly and consistently review and improve quality of care and service.

Health care organizations that participate in accreditation programs are evaluating their performance against national standards of excellence. These standards examine all facets of the organization ranging from resident safety, ethics, research, continuous quality improvement, partnerships, education and training, leadership and governance.

Accreditation is a voluntary process.

Homes that commit to the accreditation process undergo an on-site survey regularly and receive an accreditation award based on the level of attaining these standards of excellence. The maximum accreditation award that a Home can receive is three (3) years.

A report and a certificate are provided to the health care organization as recognition of their accomplishment. There are two accreditation organizations that are recognized by the Ministry of Health Long Term Care, they are: Accreditation Canada and Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
