Policies & Standards
Salem Home strives to be an innovative leader in the delivery of Long Term Care. We provide a living environment for the residents, and a work environment for the staff, compatible with the overall mission at Salem Home and promoting relationships at all levels.
We succeed in creating this environment by being committed to our core values of compassion, dignity, excellence and faith and by implementing policies and standards.
Policies set the foundation for the delivery of safe and effective quality care, and offer guidelines to help everyone understand roles, responsibilities and decisions. Our policies are developed and reviewed on a regular basis by an interdisciplinary team, including outside stakeholders family members, volunteers and residents
Standards ensure consistency, expectations, and conditions for practice, while also providing a benchmark for quality measurement and improvement. Standards are set by the province for all personal care homes in Manitoba.
Manitoba PCH Standards Review
We are also required to meet the Personal Care Home Standards legislated by the Manitoba Government. Standards visits are made by Manitoba Health annually.
We are accredited through Accreditation Canada. This means we meet nationally developed organizational and care standards as measured against other long term care facilities. In 2003, the Behavior Treatment Unit was recognized by Accreditation Canada as a Best Practice, and 2012, the model of care we have adopted “Relationship Centered Care” was recognized as a Leading Practice.
