The actual inspection is perhaps the most stressful aspect of registering with the CQC, with increased powers of investigation, such as accessing medical records; the 48 hours’ notice that is provided for routine inspections can rarely be sufficient time to adequately prepare your organisation for what can be rather intrusive and stressful visits lasting from anything to half a day to two or more days.
PCMS Ltd can help minimise the stress associated with a CQC inspection by arranging mock inspection at your organisation. The value and benefit of such an exercise cannot be underestimated and if you are concerned about what to expect from a CQC visit then contact us today.
Even the best organisations will have areas where improvements can be made. In the unfortunate event following an inspection from the CQC you have failed to meet your obligations against any of the required essential standards PCMS Ltd can help you to remedy the failing standard(s). If you have recently had a CQC visit and failed against any of the standards, contact PCMS Ltd today so that we can work with you to correct areas where your organisation may have fallen below the required standard.
Essential standards, outcomes 12 (requirements relating to workers), 12 (staffing), 14 (supporting workers) will require for organisations to demonstrate compliance in terms of staffing and staff training. As well as the core and mandatory list of training that organisations and staff need to comply with, organisations should be able to demonstrate a commitment and framework for adherence to all aspects of relevant training. PCMS Ltd can help your organisation to ensure staff are adequately trained in all relevant areas and create a bespoke training matrix and framework.
