Subject Keywords: Nursing homes
Topic: Chronic Conditions
Type: Guideline
Region: Northern Ireland
Description:

Registered providers are responsible for monitoring the quality of service provided in their nursing and residential care homes.
 
Where the registered provider of a nursing or residential care home is not in day-to-day charge of the nursing or residential care home, the Nursing Homes and Residential Care Homes Regulations require that they undertake a monthly unannounced visit. During the visit a check is required to be made on the quality of service provided at the home.
 
Providers must take into account the views of people living in their nursing or residential care home. The registered provider needs to keep a copy of the report so that it can be inspected at the next inspection by the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA).
