April 2024 Survey

In April 2024, The Good Samaritan Society and Good Samaritan Canada will again begin our accreditation journey. Throughout the next nine months, GSS and GSC will be preparing to meet or exceed the Accreditation Canada’s standards for: Governance, Infection Prevention and Control, Leadership, Long Term Care, Medication Management, Residential Homes for Seniors, and Service Excellence.

What is an Accreditation survey?

The ongoing process of assessing and improving our organization’s health and social services against national standards of excellence is related to governance, infection prevention and control, leadership, long-term care, medication management, residential homes for seniors, and service excellence.

Standards include an assessment of Required Organizational Practices (ROPs), which are essential practices that must be in place to be accredited.

Why is Accreditation Important?

Accreditation demonstrates to our residents, families and community that we strive for service excellence in terms of quality and safety. It promotes and fosters a resident & family-centered care approach and engagement. It enhances resident safety and minimizes risk. It improves communication and collaboration. Lastly, accreditation promotes awareness and education on evidence-based best practices and standards.

For over 60 years, Accreditation Canada has been an independent, nongovernmental Canadian organization that works with healthcare authorities, hospitals, and community-based programs and organizations to improve resident quality, safety, care, and service.
