Patient safety is an important healthcare discipline that aims to prevent and reduce risks, errors and harm that occur to patients during the provision of healthcare. Continuous improvement is a cornerstone of the discipline, which means that hospitals and other healthcare facilities constantly learn from mistakes made by their staff.
One way patient safety ensures continued improvements in the quality of care is through conducting CQS inspections. By carrying out a CQS inspection checklist data related to events occurring in healthcare settings, including reports on injuries, illnesses or discriminations are properly collected.
By collecting this type of information systematically and consistently with a CQS audit checklist, patient safety teams can identify trends and patterns in how specific risks are impacting patient safety outcomes. This knowledge then allows them to make informed changes to policies or procedures as needed.
The CQC is a regulatory body that enforces the quality standards of care provided by the health and social care sector. It carries out inspections to ensure that providers are meeting these standards.
Utilizing a CQC inspection checklist will help you improve ratings and shoreward your organization as being committed to excellence in patient safety. Integrating them into your regular procedure will ensure that all aspects of care are up to par.
