Continuing Care Accommodation Standards Compliance Reporting

Description

Alberta Health monitors all supportive living and long-term care accommodations for compliance to the Accommodation Standards, the Resident and Family Councils Act (RFCA) and the Continuing Care Health Service Standards (CCHSS). The purpose of the Accommodation Standards is to ensure accommodations maintain a high quality of accommodation services (e.g. meals, building maintenance, security and housekeeping) that promote the safety, security and quality of life of Albertans living in those accommodations. The RFCA is intended to support residents and their families in establishing an effective Resident and Family Council. The CCHSS are a set of legislated, minimum standards that operators must comply with in the provision of health care (e.g., medication management, care planning, staff training).

Alberta Health monitored CMOH Orders between March 20, 2020 and June 30, 2022. The CMOH Orders were explicit requirements for all operators, staff, residents, as well as the families and friends of those residents who live within the facilities to support early recognition and swift action for effective management of COVID-19.

Alberta Health currently reports publicly on the results of licensing and monitoring visits in supportive living and long-term care facilities across the province at http://standardsandlicensing.alberta.ca.

This table provides statistics, as well as licensing and contact information on supportive living and long-term care facilities and their compliance to the Accommodation Standards since April 1, 2013, the RFCA since April 1, 2018, the CCHSS since fall 2017, and the CMOH Orders from March 20, 2020 to June 30, 2022.

Usage Considerations

The accommodation data is collected from licensed operators through the licensing application process. The compliance data is collected by Licensing Inspectors when they visit accommodations to monitor compliance to the accommodation standards. The data collected is housed in a custom designed database named Accommodation Standards Licensing and Tracking (ASTRAL) System. The accommodation and compliance information from ASTRAL is published to http://standardsandlicensing.alberta.ca in "real time".

The compliance information dates back to April 1, 2013 until the date of the dataset. The data contained within this dataset may not match the data at http://standardsandlicenisng.alberta.ca because of the update frequency as the information on http://standardsandlicensing.alberta.ca is updated in "real time".
