Quality & Safety
HammondCare is committed to providing high quality, safe and person-centred care for our clients and patients.
HammondCare Health + Hospitals are fully accredited via the Australian Council on Health Care Standards (ACHS) under the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards.
We use various strategies and structures to monitor patient safety and quality of care. These include reviews, audits, surveys and feedback from consumers, carers and staff. Regular clinical indicator review is one of the strategies used within our ongoing quality and safety culture. In addition to internal and external professional reviews, we have a Consumer Advisory Council who reviews patient safety data and provide comments on a regular basis.
We also use the below Quality and Safety Newsletter to inform our consumers. Please note that this applies to all HammondCare hospitals.
