Our Audit Team takes care of large scale mattress auditing, incorporating both Dynamic and Static mattresses and, if required, other equipment too.
We work hard to provide a speedy and efficient audit service. Using suitably calibrated measuring equipment and established management processes we are able to deliver these projects on time, with minimal inconvenience.
This can help Care Providers plan and budget for any future work required.
The Care Quality Commission’s Regulation 12 states:

The Care Quality Commission says:
The intention of this regulation is to prevent people from receiving unsafe care and treatment and prevent avoidable harm or risk of harm.
CQC does however understand that there are inherent risks involved in carrying out care & treatment. They therefore do not consider care ‘unsafe’ if Care Providers can demonstrate that they have taken reasonable steps to ensure health and safety and to mitigate risk.
Select Medical can provide you with a FREE no obligation, independent Audit Service which can help you comply with these CQC standards.
A detailed Audit Report can also help Care Providers plan and manage their short and long-term budgets. It highlights problem areas that require immediate attention and those that need to be monitored.
