Brídhaven Nursing Home in Mallow has become the first nursing home in the UK and Ireland to hold three prestigious ISO awards for excellence simultaneously.
The 134-bed Nursing Home, making it the largest Nursing Home in Munster offering long-term, respite and convalescent care, received the internationally-recognised ISO 9001 Quality Management Standard, the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard and the OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Standard. ISO is the International Organisation for Standardisation which provides guidelines and standards for best practice for business, governments and society.
Tadhg Daly of Nursing Homes Ireland (the organisation for the private and voluntary nursing homes sector), commenting on Brídhaven’s awards, said: ‘As a registered and approved nursing home provider Brídhaven Nursing Home has demonstrated its strong commitment to quality in everything it does and is surely a market leader in its category. We congratulate Paul and Maryclare Rochford and their dedicated staff on their achievements to date.’Follow TheCork.ie (The Online Newspaper for Cork, Ireland) on social media
