Since June 2011, three Irish nursing homes have been issued with cancellation orders. These orders were enforced as a direct result of the nursing home’s failure to comply with the requisite Health Information and Quality Authority’s standards during official inspections.
Therefore, all nursing home providers must ensure that they adhere to the detailed standards prescribed by HIQA.
Are you a nursing home provider that would like to improve any of the following:
- Compliance with all HIQA standards
- Policy and procedure development
- The skills possessed by staff members.
- The level of care provided to residents.
