Standards and Quality Management

It is important that consistent province wide standards are established for all of your care services, protected by inspection and enforcement.

Actions

Increase the focus of residential facility inspectors on high risk areas and ensure any necessary changes are made to maintain safety beginning in April 2012.

Standardized Benefits

Plan to standardize benefits and protections to all residential care clients, regardless of where care is received by January 2013.
