Quality & Monitoring Systems
Hilton has many control systems in place to ensure all our services are meeting and exceeding the standards we expect of the services we deliver. We are a learning organisation and we continue to improve each year. We have a dedicated admin team responsible for monitoring and updating the various control systems we have in place to ensure shortfalls are picked up promptly and corrective actions are taken. We are passionate about minimising any risks within our service delivery. At present we have the following control systems in place: HR controls, service audits, finance audits, medications audits, training monitoring schedules, external finance audits, Audit and Health & Safety Committees (quarterly audits), risk register, business continuity plan, service contingency plan, monthly paperwork control systems, equal opportunity monitoring, transition checklist, complaint checklist, managers’ audit checklist, induction checklist, service visit checklist etc.
Our 2013, 2014 and 2016 CQC inspection reports
These show the company has robust quality monitoring systems in place to ensure shortfalls are identified and corrected. The CQC noted the numerous letters received from a variety of health and social care professionals thanking us for the quality of our service delivery.
We are passionate about providing consistent support to our Tenants. For the last seven years the company has not used any agency staff. We have achieved this by ensuring our staff turnover is low, ensuring all our services are fully staffed, ensuring we have sufficient bank staff, and by our managers working ‘hands-on’ to cover shifts when necessary.
