Creator:

Health Information and Quality Authority

Type: Report
Region: Northern Ireland
Description:

More and more people as they get older move into residential care settings, such as nursing homes. It is very important that the care they receive protects their rights, and allows them to lead as full lives as possible in a caring and respectful environment.The Health Information and Quality Authority (the Authority) is the independent organisation set up in 2007 to drive quality and safety and monitor the care provided to people using our health and social care services. As a priority, and at the request of the Minister for Health and Children, we developed the National Quality Standards for Residential Care Settings for Older People to help improve and to assure the quality and safety of residential care.
