Certification According to ISO 9001 AWO
Quality Management for Care Facilities
Your role as a care home or a provider of out-patient care is also assessed in terms of the wellbeing of your patients. And that means putting yourself through the acid test. The quality management concept for worker’s welfare links ISO 9001:2000 requirements with workers’ welfare (Arbeiterwohlfahrt, or AWO for short) guidelines for quality care. This lets you show your patients that your services meet the highest standards – giving them the reassurance they that they’re in good hands. Our experts help you implement standards all the way through to certification.
