Baptist Care SA has successfully achieved re-accreditation against the Quality Improvement Council (QIC) Standards for Health and Community Services, 7th Edition. Baptist Care SA will be recommended for re-accreditation after meeting all five standards (and 93 correspondent indicators) of the QIC Standards.
Assessors listed Baptist Care SA’s Tapa Marnirni-apinthi Practice Framework, leadership for and embedding of Aboriginal cultural safety across the organisation, staff expertise, support and commitment, partnerships and collaborations, spirit of innovation, safety and support, among others, as our main organisational strengths
There were also some opportunities for improvement but after the encouraging feedback received, we are delighted to be part of such a wonderful team and culture. Opportunities for improvement will be followed up by the Quality and Risk team, who will liaise with specific departments in the weeks to come. Action on these improvement opportunities will be verified during the mid-term review in 2024.
The Quality and Risk team would like to thank the Board members, Executive team, managers, staff (in particular the teams at Wayville, Inner City, Tumbelin Farm and residential care), clients, volunteers and other stakeholders for their involvement and continuous support in the accreditation process. Baptist Care SA’s quality practices have been recognised by a third party. How good is that!
The QIC accreditation program provides a thorough and wide-ranging review of organisational systems across multiple areas, including governance, management systems, consumer and community engagement, diversity and cultural appropriates and service delivery. It is also the highest accreditation that can be achieved in the health and community services sector.
Congratulations and Thank You!
Manager, Quality & Risk
