We have been informed that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Standards accreditation surveys scheduled for June 2020 (Monash Health) and July 2020 (Jessie McPherson Private Hospital), will be postponed until we have entered the ‘recovery’ phase of the pandemic (as determined by government). This is to ensure we are able to direct the resources and attention we need to responding to COVID-19.
We will continue to keep you updated over the coming months.
Now is the time we rely most on our existing governance processes. We urge you to keep these processes strong to ensure we continue to deliver high quality, safe care to those who need it most.
Thank you for the work you are currently undertaking in challenging circumstances. Your commitment to quality and safety means we will be able to continue to deliver the best outcomes for our community, now and into the future.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please speak to Kate MacDermid, Director Quality and Safety, on 0408 564 031.
