NSHSC Participates in Accreditation Canada Survey

NSHSC is looking forward to participating in the Accredi­tation Canada Survey, scheduled for the week of October 30, 2017. The surveyors will be visiting six NSHSC sites across the province; conducting interviews with clients/families, stakeholders, board members and staff; and reviewing NSHSC procedures and documentation in order to evaluate NSHSC on over 475 standards related to quality health care. This is an important opportunity for NSHSC. The external reviewers from Accreditation Canada will provide feedback and resources representing best practices from other orga­nizations which will support ongoing improvement efforts by NSHSC to provide safe and quality hearing and speech-language pathology services to Nova Scotians.

Nova Scotia Hearing and Speech Centres (NSHSC) is proud to announce that it has successfully achieved accreditation with Accreditation Canada. The decision followed its first on-site survey in October, 2015 as part of an ongoing accreditation process.

NSHSC was evaluated against national standards, and will use the results to continually improve the quality and safety of its services.

“I am very proud of everyone at Nova Scotia Hearing and Speech Centres,” said Anne Mason-Browne, President and CEO. “They work incredibly hard to make sure they provide our communities with speech-language pathology and audiology services that are safe, effective, and of the highest quality. Our accreditation award is a real testament to the fact that everyone here makes quality and safety a priority every day.”
