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.

Accreditation is granted to homes that comply with Standards defined in the Aged Care Act, which aims to ensure that consumers of aged care services receive high and continuously improving quality of care and services.

There are four Standards:
  1. Management systems, staffing and organisation development
  2. Health and personal care
  3. Consumer Lifestyle and
  4. Physical environment and safe systems.

Each Standard is divided into a number of expected outcomes. (44 in total).

The audit team from the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency spoke to at least 10% of the consumers who live here during the Accrediation process. Those who were interviewed were randomly selected. The results, which help you understand the experience of the consumers living here, are available on
https://agedcarequality.gov.au/services/russian-relief-association-st-sergius-radonezh-2819

Also the accreditation audit report on the home is available at:

St Sergius has again received accreditation following the most recent Accreditation surveys in November 2018. The facilities met all 44 expected outcomes. .
