RHA Accreditation Update and Next Steps

Accreditation Update and Next Steps




We would like to announce that the formerly known Brandon Regional Health Authority has been accredited with commendation from Accreditation Canada.  We extend our sincerest gratitude towards all for participating during the onsite survey.  All of our diligence and hard work showed, as we accomplished a 94% compliance rate overall.




Some highlights the accreditation surveyors emphasized:


§  There is positive staff morale and commitment to quality improvement.


§  The safety briefings and how they are evolving and there is a further rollout plan. 


§  In regards to risk management our preventative maintenance process is very thorough.


§  We have a well established emergency preparedness plan.


§  Our formal complaint process shows to be effective for quality improvement.




Some opportunities for improvement the accreditation surveyors emphasized:


§  Recruitment and retention of some categories of professional staff is a challenge.


§  The need for consistently completing performance appraisals and ensuring position profiles are accurate.


§  Communicating with staff and effectively engaging staff in planning and quality activities needs improvement.




Recommendations will be shared with the Accreditation teams to work on in the coming months.  As quality improvement is continuous; we will be submitting evidence to Accreditation Canada to support our accreditation decision.




The executive summary is available on the Brandon RHA’s website for your information ( by clicking the ‘Resources and Education’ link on the homepage.
