General questions about the draft standards

10. Do the consumer outcomes in the draft standards reflect the matters that are most important to consumers?

Please select one item
Yes, always
Ticked Yes, mostly
Yes, sometimes
No
Don't know
Text box for suggestions about improving consumer outcomes
Although the draft standards are very comprehensive, the current NSQHS standards that we are required to comply with, as an MPHS in Queensland, are probably more comprehensive but in some cases- Blood and Blood Products (standard 7) and Patient Identification and Procedure Matching (standard 5)- are not applicable. These standards suite MPHS's because they are applicable to the acute care hospital function of our facilities. MPHS should be exempt from these standards due to the complex nature of our business- not just residential care. MPHS's would be required to do two sets of accreditation if this was implemented

11. Are the organisation statements and requirements in the draft standards achievable for providers?

Please select one item
Yes, always
Ticked Yes, mostly
Yes, sometimes
No
