Accreditation is one of the most effective ways for health services organizations to regularly and consistently examine and improve the quality of their services.
Health care organizations that participate in Accreditation Canada’s accreditation programs are evaluating their performance against national standards of excellence. These standards examine all aspects of health care, from patient safety and ethics, to staff training and partnering with the community. Health care staff devote time and resources to learn how to improve what they are doing so they can provide the best possible care and service to their patients and clients.
Organizations are surveyed once every three to four years. Following the survey, they receive one of four accreditation decisions: Not Accredited, Accredited, Accredited with Commendation, or Accredited with Exemplary Standing.
