Four years after the accreditation for the substance abuse treatment unit, the Alexians psychiatric clinic in Tienen has now also been awarded an accreditation label from the Dutch Institute for Health Care Accreditation (NIAZ) for all 5 specialized departments. The international quality label guarantees care quality and safety.
A team of surveyors visited the institution in June for four days and studied its operations, both in terms of organization and patient care. A total of more than 600 criteria were examined, relating to population focus, care accessibility and safety, work life, client-centred services, effectiveness, and efficiency. Excellent results were achieved for all criteria. In total, 690 of the 707 norm criteria were met, a score of 97.6%.
