Pursuit of excellence
In June 2015 our services in Western Australia and South Australia underwent an Alignment Survey within the framework of Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS) EQuIP5.
ACHS is an independent, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving the quality of health care in Australia through the continual review of performance, assessment and accreditation.
Silver Chain Group Quality Manger, Gertie Murphy, said that ACHS has since formally advised that the organisation’s services in Western Australia and South Australia are accredited for the next two years.
“ACHS acknowledged our long and proud history of providing best practice, compassionate, holistic and quality care to the communities we serve. They also made comment that our staff showed strong commitment to providing quality care to our clients,” Gertie explained.
“We are pleased with the outcome of the Alignment Survey as it recognised the organisation’s commitment to quality and safety and delivering the highest standard of service to our clients.
“This accreditation demonstrates that we remain a quality focused and transparent organisation by ensuring we are compliant in providing the full range of services at an industry accepted level.”
