All Nations Healing Hospital receives Exemplary Status with Accreditation Canada

(Fort Qu’Appelle, SK) Accreditation Canada has awarded All Nations Healing Hospital in Fort Qu’Appelle full accreditation with Exemplary Standing until October 2019, following an on-site survey held October 26 to 29th. Less than 5% of Canadian hospitals receive this level, confirming that ANHH goes beyond the requirements of Accreditation Canada and demonstrates excellence in quality improvement for the second time in eight years.

Accreditation Canada sets national standards for quality and patient safety, and measures health care organizations against these standards. The process demonstrates, documents and serves to strengthen an organization`s structure, stability, systems, programs and services and has confirmed that ANHH continues to sustain a culture of quality and safety.

ANHH met all standards within six standard areas: medicine services, medication management, primary care services, infection prevention and control, governance and leadership. ANHH also met all of the Required Organizational Practices of the 31 that applied.

Accreditation surveyors observed the overall quality of services and strong sense of team that exists within the organization. Also noted was the ability of ANHH to respond to the evolving needs of our communities with the implementation of new programs and services to include: the midwifery led low risk birth unit, health navigator position and introduction of Sunrise clinical Manager in the emergency department of the ANHH. The surveyors also commented on the positive relationships with local and regional services as well as inter-sectorial partners.

The achievement is extraordinary and we are thrilled to have successfully accomplished this goal not once but twice.
