Care Home Policies to help you secure registration & stay compliant

When setting up a care home, it needs to be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), demonstrating that you have met the legal requirements of safely carrying on Regulated Activities as defined within the CQC Fundamental Standards of Quality and Safety.

Quality Compliance Systems (QCS), helps you to achieve your all important registration by providing you with key care home policies, including your Statement of Purpose which must be submitted alongside your application.

Other key policies which help to support your registration include;
– Service User Guide
–  Handbook and Contract,

With the needs of residential service users to take care of, you can help to achieve ongoing compliance by ensuring that the majority of your policies and procedures are service user focussed.

It is important that wherever possible, service users are involved in decisions that can affect them.  A consultative approach will help to demonstrate that you truly are listening to their needs and shaping their individual service in direct response to what you have learnt.   This is a common thread running throughout the CQC Key Lines of Enquiry, but is also one which has a direct Outcome attached to it, namely Outcome 1: Respecting and involving people who use services.

The QCS Care Home Management System threads this philosophy throughout all of our 300+ policy and procedures, everything from the Daily Living Policy to our Family Satisfaction Survey.
