Accreditation Q-Tip Catch-Up Event!

By Nimrah Kiyani

Did you miss the Accreditation Q-Tip event on July 27? If so, we’re giving you another opportunity to collect any missing Q-Tips.

On Tuesday, August 16 from 11:30am-1:30 pm, staff can come down to the lobby and visit the Accreditation booth to collect any or all of the printed Accreditation Q-Tips they may have missed along the way.

Q-Tips are pocket-sized cards that outline key WCH processes relevant to Accreditation in a short and digestible format. Examples of topics include Emergency Preparedness, Falls Prevention, Ethics, Patient Engagement, Communication Safety Tools, and Incident Reporting.

For staff collecting Q-Tips virtually, Quality team members will be on hand to help you find the ones you are looking for. Virtual Q-Tips are embedded in various Accreditation Connect articles. They can be downloaded (right click the Q-Tip graphic, then click ‘Save As’) or captured in a screen shot to be stored on a personal computer or mobile device.

Stay tuned for news about the annual WCH Staff BBQ in September where those who have collected all of the Q-Tips will be eligible to win prizes, like a one-of-a-kind WCH crewneck!

Questions about Q-Tips can be directed to or you can visit the Accreditation Intranet Hub. Thanks for participating in this year’s Q-Tips campaign to help prepare for Accreditation 2022!
