A Voice & a Choice for Gold Standard Park House

Staff and visitors gathered at Park House to join in celebrating the Gold Award received earlier this year. 

It was a great learning curve for us all from the outset but we achieved to become the first nursing care home in Nottingham City to gain The Gold Standard for Care Home Accreditation.

 

Care Home Manager Jacqui Inglis explained what the gold standard entailed and what it meant for both staff and residents.

It has ensured that our residents have a voice and a choice and the benefits of advanced planning. We have reduced hospital admissions and offer excellence in symptom control.

 

GSFC has meant that communications with all other disciplines has occurred & all the team feel more confident, discuss the needs of residents & GSFC is at the centre of care for us.

We have a proactive approach,improved knowledge and are able to observe the signs quicker & react accordingly so that people can be as comfortable as possible during their final hours.

It is a team and family approach including us all - kitchen staff, laundry staff, care staff, nursing etc

 

'Everyday wishes count' & residents are able to have an everyday wish list with things we can facilitate for them. We can .

 

'Park House is the Best Place for Care in the region, its as good as you will get anywhere' said Mark Wilson

One on One Care is often needed and delivered with understanding by Park House Staff

.

 

 

Mark Wilson (End of Life Care Facilitor - right) detailed what he had seen during the process of achieving the accreditation;

So much work has gone into achieving the Gold Standard by all the staff at every level. The nursing staff took it on board and committed from the outset and the non-qualified staff ensured that it was implemented as part of daily practice. Staff have always shown an interest and a desire to improve and the careful planning implemented means the best quality of care is offered.

Park House is where the residents choose to be as their last place of stay which is a great accolade.

 
 

You only have to read the cards of thanks from relatives, where their loved ones have spent their last days with us, to understand that they receive the ultimate care and consideration right up to the end.

 

'To each and everyone of the lovely staff at Park House, thank you for looking after our Mum Lorna, for the short time she was with you'

Award Ceremony for Park House 'Stars'

Gold Standard For Care Homes Accreditation

 

Our pioneers and team leaders, Kate Fox and Michelle Whiley, (pictured right) recently headed to the London Ceremony to gain the Gold Standard Award.

 

Justly deserved following 18 months of managing the Gold Standard Project at Park House Care Home, they joined an elite group to gain this accreditation.

 

To be accredited, the home had to show that it met the criteria in 20 different areas, ranging from leadership and support to dignity and respect, as well as submit a portfolio of evidence.

This accreditation process is endorsed by all major care homes’ organisations and supported by Age UK.  It is also now recognized as excellent by the Skills Academy for Social Care.

 

Congratulations go to all the team (Pictured below)  who pride themselves on the excellent care provided to residents.

 

- They provide the right care, at the right time in the right place  -

 
 

 

 

As one of the first Nursing Care Homes in Nottingham to receive this, Park House home gained their accreditation, as part of the Gold Standards Framework (GSF) in Care Homes Quality Hallmark Awards.

Gold Standard Achievment at Park House

Great results obtained as Park House is awarded the Gold Standard for Care Homes.(GSFCH).......

Congratulations go to Kate Fox who initiated and lead this project and Care Home Manager Jacqui Inglis & all the team at Park House. What a great start for 2013.

 

   

Pictured left determined team leader Kate Fox who has pursued the Gold Standard all the way to completion of this Quality Hallmark Award.

It has taken foresight and commitment to go forward with this, documenting, communicating and monitoring change have been key and Kate has taken this on board from start to its accreditation today.

The GSFCH is a step towards better care for those nearing the end of life, it is about recognising the needs of residents and having procedures in place to effect good care.

 

 

This programme covers a whole range of Care aspects and is so thorough that no element of care is neglected Staff undergo training for competency based assessment and managers are able to develop training needs from this.

Communication and Continuity are intrinsic within the GSFCH so that any necessary changes in care are made visible to all involved;  Carer, Manager, GP, relative, resident.

Eastgate Care recognised the investment needed to go forward with the gold standard, develop further skills and strategies in its areas of expertise and are fortunate to have the right people leading and within the team at Park House to implement this.  Eastgate had the benefit of an experienced End of Life Facilitator from the local health authority, to offer support throughout the process.

 

 Care Home Manager - Jacqui Inglis, fully supportive of the Gold Standard throughout the project and as part of the Park House daily procedures.

 

 

   

"I know the time and effort that the staff at Park House have put into gaining this accreditation, in particular Kate Fox and Michele Whiley, two of our registered nurses. We are very proud of the home and the excellent care they provide for people coming to the end of their life"

 

 - Operations Manager Sue Clifford
