Quality

"Quality patient-centered care at LACGH entails knowledgeable, skilled and timely diagnosis and treatment by a respectful, empathetic health care team with a key focus on open communication with patient families. This care will be provided in a safe, clean and inviting environment." (LACGH, Patient & Family Advisory Council, 2017)

Excellent Care for All Act (ECFAA)

The focus of the ECFAA is quality and continuous improvements, to ensure accountability by all staff and to improve overall patient satisfaction. In accordance with the ECFAA, the hospital has established a Quality Committee of the Board of Directors to review what we do well and to develop plans to address areas for improvement. The Committee continually reviews quality indicators and monitors our progress as we strive to provide the best patient experience possible.

Requirements of the ECFAA:
  • Establish a quality committee that report on quality-related issues
  • Put annual quality improvement plans in place and make these available to the public
  • Link executive compensation to the achievement of targets set out in the quality improvement plan
  • Put patient / care provider satisfaction surveys in place
  • Conduct staff surveys
  • Develop a declaration of values following public consultation, if such a document is not currently in place
  • Establish a patient relations process to address and improve the patient experience.
