Programs and Services
The Canadian Council on Health Services Accreditation (CCHSA) is an independent non-profit organization having responsibility for the accreditation of health care facilities across Canada. The CCHSA Program is a voluntary program which aims to ensure standards of care in the field of health care are met. Participants in the program who have achieved official accreditation status are assured in the knowledge that they have received approval from the authorized national body on the basis of nationwide, health care standards. We are participants in this nationwide accreditation program.
Continuous Quality Improvement is a program that continuously strives to enhance quality of services. The staff at Malton Village are committed to ongoing improvement and will be looking for resident and families input.
In an effort to prevent slips and falls, we recommend that residents wear footwear that has a slip resistant tread and a closed toe and heel. Malton Village Long Term Care Centre has a Fall Prevention Program in place to assist in decreasing the risks of falls.
Infection control is the practice by which the home prevents and manages infections. Infection control principles are included in all aspects of care. Hand washing is the best method to prevent transmission of infections. We strongly recommend that family members and visitors wash their hands before and after each visit. A paper should be used to turn off the taps to keep your hands clean after washing. We also have hand sanitizing station available at the main entrance and in front of each Resident Home Area for your convenience.
Family members and visitors may be asked not to visit the Centre during an outbreak of an infectious disease or if they have colds, fever, or vomiting and diarrhoea. The purpose is to protect you and your family from the infection. Children exposed to chickenpox are advised not to visit as the Residents can catch this type of infection easily.
All visitors are required to sign in and out to Malton Village in the visitor log and to review the self screening tool.
Palliative care will be provided by the interdisciplinary team at Malton Village. The program will be provided to residents in the end stages of their lives and will include assessment and care with emphasis on the physical, spiritual, social and psychological needs of residents and their families.
Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy are available to Residents who have been assessed by their physicians to require this service. There is limited coverage on these services by OHIP.
Restorative Care is aimed at improving or restoring an individual’s level of independence to a former capacity. It requires specific and professional assessment, individual goals and a measurable outcome. There are several approaches to Restorative Care including restorative feeding and exercise programs. There is an interdisciplinary team consisting of the Physician, Nursing staff, Physiotherapist, Dietary Services Supervisor and Dietitian, Rehabilitation Assistant, Volunteers and family members.
