National Standards Accreditation Survey
In September 2015, Cabrini underwent a periodic survey and was successfully accredited against the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards (NSQHS Standards) which are part of a national quality accreditation survey. This is a three-year accreditation program for health services that will ensure a continued focus on quality and safety across our organisation. The only exception is Cabrini Residential Aged Care at Ashwood, which like other residential sites across the country, is measured against the aged-care standards.
Our next organisational quality accreditation survey against the NSQHS Standards will occur in September 2018 where Cabrini will be measured against each of the criterion listed in Standards 1 to 10.
