All Australian health services are required to be assessed under a national accreditation program overseen by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care.
In June 2018, Cabrini was successfully accredited to the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards (NSQHS Standards). The 10 NSQHS Standards provide a national statement about the level of care consumers can expect from health service organisations. The primary aim of the standards is to protect the public from harm and improve the quality of health care.
The accreditation process involves the ongoing review of our performance against national standards across a range of areas. An independent team of healthcare professionals review the quality and safety of services provided every three years. The team rates the performance of the organisation against set criteria. The three-year program ensures a continued focus on quality and safety across Cabrini. The performance of Cabrini Residential Aged Care at Ashwood is measured against the Aged Care Quality Standards.
Our next organisational quality accreditation survey against the NSQHS Standards will occur in early 2021 where Cabrini will be measured against each of the criterion listed in the second edition of the NSQHS Standards (Standards 1 to 8).
Cabrini is a member of the Australian Council of Health Care Standards (ACHS). ACHS is responsible for assessing organisations for accreditation. To find out more about these standards please visit:
