Quality and Safety – a focus in Aged Care Accreditation

Recent stories in the News regarding quality and safety in our industry highlight the issues of quality and complaints in our industry. Managed appropriately, they can be an opportunity to learn and continuously improve. Oakden Facility is not a Residential Aged Care Facility, it offers a Specialist Older Persons’ Mental Health Service for people with severe mental illness. Combining State Operations with Federal Government funding appears to have contributed to the failures of the operations of this facility. We are pleased to hear that the Minister for Aged Care has called for an independent review into the Aged Care Regulatory Processes.

Such reported cases are the minority and not representative of the industry’s performance and passion of aged care workers. Australia has an internationally recognised Aged Care System that is highly regulated. Australia is only one of a few OECD countries that requires all Residential Aged Care Facilities to be formally accredited. Given the scope of an Aged Care Facilities’ operations complaints will be inevitable as in all service industry.

Managers, Registered Nurses Direct Care Workers, Team Leaders, Allied Health Providers, GPs and Specialists all for part of the Belvedere team. We pride ourselves on our Staff Structure and the education opportunities provided to our staff to ensure Quality Care.
