Accreditation is a process where FOCUS Accreditation, a health care accreditation body, visits CCD and assesses our quality and safety standards. FOCUS wants to ensure that we have the procedures and policies to support quality, safety and best practices.

The overall goal of Accreditation is to ensure that CCD will meet or exceed standards to improve the quality of client care and satisfaction. As a community, CCD already does an exceptional job at taking care of our clients, Accreditation acknowledges our strengths. This process will also find and address gaps within current practices at CCD so that exceptionalism can be our standard in all areas.

In order for Accreditation to be integrated into our everyday language, it will require everyone at CCD to be on board and ready to learn! The upcoming months will be exciting with some planned events that will boost your knowledge (and maybe even a couple of giveaways during games, quizzes, and/or surveys!)
