So after searching numerous resources and just about pulling my hair out as I am finding numerous answers, does anyone know the answer to the following question:

Name the system used to maintain and monitor quality care in
1. Acute care settings
2. Aged care settings

My first response was ACHS for both, but I am thinking there must be 2 answers, so am now thinking ACFI for aged care, and ACHS for acute care.

Help!!!!!

Thanks pinkstars, thats what I was thinking for aged care.  Am just a little unsure about the acute care now, but will leave my answer as ACHS and see how I go!

Thanks so much for that.  I thought I was on the right track, but just doubted myself, and I knew some of you lovely ladies would be able to help me.

I think Aged Care would be the Aged Care standards enforced through accreditation every 3 years.
