Accreditation success for Forest View
FOREST View Childers board directors, CEO, staff and residents celebrated this week after receiving news that the aged care facility has been awarded maximum accreditation for a three-year term until September 2017.
The aged care facility underwent accreditation in July against 44 Aged Care Standards and was compliant in all standards.
Residents and their families were involved in the process by being interviewed by the accreditors.
Standards such as human resource management, quality improvement, clinical care, resident lifestyle and physical environment safe systems were assessed during the process.
This has been a busy year for Forest View with their Retirement Village also receiving full accreditation in April this year.
A quality reporting process for the Community Care Program will be undertaken at the end of November.
