Benefits of choosing a CQC Registered rehab clinic
There are many ways to decide if a rehabilitation centre is appropriate and the Care Quality Commission report can be a great place to start.
CQC is the Care Quality Commission which monitor, inspect and regulate social care services and providers like; GPs, hospitals, rehabilitation facilities and care homes.
All inspections are performed by highly trained experts who create a report which is graded as either, outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate.
What Is The Purpose Of The Care Quality Commission?
Their purpose and values are to make sure people are receiving effective, compassionate, high-quality care. And they strive for excellence, care, integrity and teamwork, which is particularly important when selecting a rehabilitation centre.
Most rehabilitation providers will share their latest report and results on their websites or can provide you with the full report if you ask for it.
What Does The CQC Report Cover?
The report will cover everything they check during the inspection. The CQC make sure that all patients are treated with respect and care at every stage of treatment. They also check the quantity and quality of any food and drink and all the facilities and equipment are well maintained.
The CQC are aware that there may be issues from time to time, so the report also covers how any complaints are handled and how they continuously have plans to maintain high levels of care. They also check the quantity and quality of all the staff.
Why Are CQC Reports So Beneficial?
Care Quality Commission reports are so beneficial when choosing a rehabilitation centre because it is an unbiased evaluation of service providers. And because the providers are continuously inspected you know the care you will be receiving is the care reflected in the report.
We know it could feel overwhelming reading a full report for every rehabilitation centre you are considering but thankfully any centres that have a CQC rating will normally display it clearly; like the traffic light system below.
The rating will be displayed in any waiting areas or communal and service rooms. They must also show their rating on their website. So you will know at a quick glance if you should consider your chosen rehabilitation centre.
