Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA)

Subject Keywords: ENVIRONMENT, HEALTHCARE AND HEALTH SERVICES, QUALITY OF LIFE, RESIDENTIAL CARE
Topic: Chronic Conditions
Type: Guideline
Region: Republic of Ireland
Description:

The Health Information and Quality Authority has developed these standards to help protect the rights of older people living in residential care settings such as nursing homes. When people move into such settings, 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, the Authority developed the National Quality Standards for Residential Care Settings for Older People in Ireland to help improve and to assure the quality and safety of care provided to older people.
