The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Healthcare (The Commission) developed the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards to drive the implementation of safety and quality systems and improve the quality of health care in Australia. The eight NSQHS Standards provide a nationally consistent statement about the level of care consumers can expect from health services.
