The Qmentum International standards cover key requirements for safety and quality across the continuum of care. There are two types of standards in the Program- the system-wide standards and the service-sector standards.
The system-wide standards are required for most health care organizations and consist of:
- Leadership standards which looks at how the organization’s executive team is planning and evaluating its programs and services
- Governance standards that evaluate the organization’s board of directors or governing body
- Infection Prevention and Control and Medication Management standards which look at how these areas are planned, implemented and evaluated across the organization
The service-sector standards focus on a specific area in the organization such the emergency department or diagnostic services. The list of applicable standards depends on the services provided by the organization.
