Care Compliance Xpert is proud to present Care Quality Matters – the essential guide for Registered Managers in the care sector that provides practical, actionable, step-by-step advice on how to pass your next Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspections.
Most care managers are too busy to read specialist academic literature or waste time on publications that provide only generic or irrelevant advice. That’s why Care Quality Matters packs immediately implementable tips, checklists and instructions – based on tried and tested Plan, Do, Check, Act (PDCA) Cycle processes – into every issue’s twelve pages.
Focus on CQC Fundamental Standards and how to meet them
The Care Quality Commission Fundamental Standards set out the levels of care service users have a right to expect from your care business. But of course, all your services users are different, with a variety of conditions and needs, which can make interpreting what the CQC Fundamental Standards mean in any given situation very demanding.
Care Quality Matters regularly dives deep into best practice and legal compliance as it applies to the wide-ranging issues care service users and Registered Managers have to confront – including person-centred care, medication management, infection control, palliative care, mobility and dealing with falls and trips, nutrition, food and drink and more.
