Hulton Care Home in Middleton has received an 'outstanding' accreditation for the high quality of care it provides, scooping the nationally renowned Daisy Award with a stunning 100 percent rating.
The Daisy Mark is an award-winning accreditation scheme that was developed to be a quality marker for organisations to enable them to demonstrate that they have met the Daisy Standards. It is designed to complement the already excellent levels of care delivered and to ensure that high standards and good practice are celebrated, recognised and shared.
The Accreditation is open to all organisations but with a focus on Health and Social Care Providers. The accreditation is currently being undertaken in care homes, clinics, in patient units, GP surgeries, hospitals and education providers.
When an organisation has been accredited, they will receive a Daisy Mark plaque to add to their dignity champion badges to proudly display on their premises.
Councillor Iftikhar Ahmed, cabinet member for adult care, said:
“This is a fantastic achievement. Hulton has an inspiring and dedicated team who ensure a really high standard of care is provided for residents. It is a success story to cherish and I am thrilled for everyone involved in this really well run and managed care home. The staff can be proud of their achievements and as a council we will continue to ensure all care homes across the borough achieve the highest possible care standards.”
Ellen Stack, deputy manager and clinical lead at Hulton Care Home, said:
“We are absolutely delighted with the Daisy Award, as we always aspire to provide the highest standard of care. None of this would have been possible without a wonderful team of hardworking staff. Our Daisy Accreditation is proudly on show in our reception area so families and friends of residents can immediately see our nationally recognised award.”
