Meeting accreditation standards is an important part of how we improve the quality of healthcare provided at Moyne Health Services.
- To be accredited, the Moyne Health Services Acute Ward and Urgent Care Centre are required to meet National Healthcare Standards as measured and recognised by independent and external accreditation assessments.
- Our Residential Aged Care Facilities (Moyneyana and Belfast) are required to meet the Aged Care Quality and Safety Standards.
Patient safety is everyone’s responsibility and Moyne Health Services is committed to improving procedures and systems to prevent all errors that result in harm to a patient.
Controlling and preventing healthcare-associated infections
Moyne Health Services monitors and reports on the prevention and control of healthcare-associated infections, specifically the Staphylococcus Aureus Bacteraemia (SAB) rate, which is a serious blood stream infection.
