How we assess quality
Quality of care also follows Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) guidelines on Professional standards of practice.
Our care is rated Good by the Care Quality Commission, (CQC) and we are committed to continually improving the quality of our children’s complex care.
We do this by completing additional measures to assess quality care, which includes:
Completing quarterly surveys to gain honest feedback from individuals, family members and other professionals we work with. This helps us improve quality of care and service provision.
Supporting our staff to develop their skills, learning from feedback, audits and assessments. This allows us to regularly review and develop our standards.
Monthly clinical audits
Measuring person-centred outcomes against best practice measures to identify areas of improvement. Audits are completed on medication administration records and clinical documentation in the home.
Quality monitoring reports
Completed quarterly and bi-annually and sent to commissioning bodies, social workers and community children’s nursing teams (CCNT). The reports include details on commissioned hours of care, barriers and achievements, overview of provision, training provided and feedback from families.
