Accreditation & Quality Review

Accreditation, by Aged Care Quality and Safety Commmissioner, is mandatory for aged care services to be able to operate and receive government funding.

Under the Aged Care Act 1997, all aged care services must meet an accreditation and Quality Review requirement to be eligible to receive a Commonwealth subsidy. The Aged Care Quality and Safety Commmission conducts unannounced site audits and evaluates an organisation's processes.

What do the new government Quality of Care standards mean for St Sergius?

While the Royal Commission has been dominating headlines, another important change for the aged care sector is underway. The new Aged Care Quality Standards come into effect on July 1. While previously different standards applied to residential, home care and social support programs, now all aged care providers will be assessed according to a single set of eight standards to achieve Australian Government accreditation.

The new standards shift the definition of ‘good care’ to focus on outcomes achieved for the consumer, and how a provider demonstrates that.

Accreditation

As part of the accreditation process, each provider must submit a self-assessment to the Aged Care Quality & Safety Commission against the Standards, which is followed by an unannounced visit that includes an audit of records and interviews with consumers, family members and staff.
