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. The need to maintain nursing capability around the clock is a pre-requisite and the compliance obligation cannot be sidestepped.

    I have received my official letter of Registration from the CQC today. I could not have done any of this without the beautiful TINA HALL. She made me feel like I was the only person that she was helping which I know is far from true! She never tired from my 'daft' questions when I was having 'blonde' moments. She reassured me and gave me confidence when I was ready to throw in the towel! Tina was patient, extremely helpful… Emma Howarth - Able Care Huddersfield
