The Sault Area Hospital has once again received accreditation from Accreditation Canada. Members of the board of directors learned on Wednesday that the hospital had met 97 percent of the standards required for accreditiation for the next three years. This means that the hospital is able to perform with a quality commitment to health care for staff, patients and the community. The hospital has received accreditation previously, but this time the hospital will be working over the next few months to aim for a designation of Accreditation With Exemplary Standing. One example of achieving this would be through the development of a Fall Strategy In Ambulatory Care. The hospital would exercise that strategy through monitoring, reviewing and having the ability to demonstrate that there will not be any falls in this area. But that may easier said than done — this would have to be achieved by a report back deadline of September 5th and it was announced that more time may be needed to actually realize that strategy. The hospital is due to report back around September 5th, in order to meet ‘major’ and ‘minor’ requirements, with one of those being to have that strategy in place and for it to be done in a consistent manner.
