Accreditation and Quality Improvement processes are vital and ongoing at Kerang District Health. Kerang District Health has successfully achieved ACHS accreditation by meeting the requirements of the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care’s (the ACSQHC’s) National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards.

Hospital Accreditation – ACHS – Fully compliant – Accredited until 3 November 2024

Aged Care Accreditation – ACSAA – Fully compliant – Accredited until 7 March 2022 (Glenarm Nursing Home). Due to COVID-19 in 2020 this had been extended.

As part of the Australian Council on Health Care Standards accreditation process, periodic reviews are undertaken and recommendations resulting from the periodic reviews are addressed and reported to the ACHS via self-assessment reporting. Kerang District Health also elected, as part of the periodic review, to undergo a gap analysis against the eight National Safety and Quality Health Care Standards. During February 2019 Glenarm Residential Aged Care facility underwent an unannounced support visit. Compliance was met with no recommendations received.
