SafeCare Standards

An outline of our standards, divided into 13 different service elements

The standards presented here are designed to help bridge the gap between today and a better tomorrow bringing patient care quality and patient safety to new levels. Implementing standards can be an evolutionary process taking time to do things right and better. While the ultimate goal is to have an outside evaluation team come into your organization and evaluate how well the standards are met (often called Accreditation), it is important to recognize an organization’s achievements along the way. Thus, progress in meeting these standards will bring recognition for incremental achievements. This recognition with certify to others that your quality journey has started and your organization is making progress.
