What makes an outstanding care home?
The Care Quality Commission (CQC), five key questions when it monitors services to help focus on the things that matter to people. The fifth question is extremely important: Is the home well-led?
Is your service well-led? CQC defines “well led” as the leadership, management and governance of the organisation to ensure it provides high-quality care based around the individual’s needs, that it encourages learning and innovation, and promotes an open and fair culture.
Achieving an outstanding rating for well-led means care home owners and registered care home managers can effectively monitor and improve the quality of care in the home. Caregivers are now expected to have the right attitude and latest information to hand to deliver sustainable care.
Service Users have changing care needs and there should be in place a strong framework of accountability to monitor performance and risk, leading to the delivery of demonstrable quality improvements to the service. This is where technology comes into the fore.
The use of technology is no longer an option. The best care homes are going digital and clearly pushing the boundary towards better care and Cura Systems is proud to be at the forefront of this change.
