Ensuring a safe environment for both patients and staff is of utmost importance. One invaluable tool to achieve this is the Premises Assurance Model (PAM). This comprehensive questionnaire assesses the safety and suitability of healthcare premises. With accuSafe by your side, completing the PAM process becomes a seamless experience, saving you time and effort that can be directed towards providing exceptional patient care. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps of completing the PAM questionnaire with accuSafe’s expert guidance.

Step 1: Understanding the PAM Questionnaire

The questionnaire is designed to evaluate various aspects of your healthcare premises, including fire safety, infection control, equipment maintenance, and more. It’s crucial to comprehend the questions and their underlying objectives. 

But don’t worry – accuSafe is here to help!
