Mid Louth Independent - - NEWS -

ITS of­fi­cial! Gor­manston Wood Nurs­ing Home has won the over­all Na­tional Q Mark ti­tle for Best Nurs­ing Home of the Year 2018 at The Na­tional Q Mark Awards.

Their nom­i­na­tion put them in the top 6.75% of all au­dits com­pleted by the Ex­cel­lence Ire­land Qual­ity As­so­ci­a­tion (EIQA) on the is­land of Ire­land and this win means they are at the very top of the Q for high­est stan­dards of Qual­ity and Ex­cel­lence.

“The size, lo­ca­tion and culture makes Gor­manston Wood a unique Nurs­ing Home. It’s the peo­ple that make a place spe­cial and the team here are truly unique,” said Irene Collins, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of EIQA at this year’s awards.

“By fo­cus­ing on best prac­tice and qual­ity stan­dards they pro­vide a high level of ex­cep­tional care. Winning The Q Mark for Nurs­ing Homes recog­nises that”.

Known as The Os­cars of Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence, The Q Mark Award is the high­est ac­co­lade an Ir­ish busi­ness can achieve, given both the in­tense com­pe­ti­tion and the ex­act­ing stan­dards re­quired.

Also up for nom­i­na­tion were two Co Louth busi­nesses, Han­non’s Cen­tra, Mell in Drogheda and St. Peter’s Nurs­ing Home in Castle­belling­ham, mean­ing they also were in the top 6.75% of all au­dits com­pleted by the EIQA (Ex­cel­lence Ire­land Qual­ity As­so­ci­a­tion) on the is­land of Ire­land.

Held on Septem­ber 29th in Dublin, this was a very spe­cial year for the Q Mark Awards as the EIQA cel­e­brate 50 years. They in turn cel­e­brate the suc­cess of busi­nesses over a range of sec­tors that re­view 100% of their pro­cesses.
