CQC Compliant Policies & Procedures for Nursing Homes

The QCS Care Home with Nursing Management System allows those providing social care services in nursing homes to manage their businesses, meet compliance demands and provide consistently high standards of care.

Many agree it is difficult to meet the CQC Fundamental Standards; in a care home with nursing the problems are compounded, especially if you have a working practice where you create your own policies and procedures.
