COVID-19 Presents Us With Ongoing Challenges

September 29, 2021 2:22 am

COVID-19 continues to impact the Aged Care Sector but now with increased vaccination rates, we can see a light at the end of the tunnel for us all.

The Queensland and NSW Governments continue to provide Legal Directives that McLean Care must comply with and that has direct impact on both visitors and contractors. These Directives are often released with short notice.

McLean Care will endeavour to notify you of pending Directives and the impact. We ask you to continue to check on our website or ring the facility if you have any questions.

The Federal Government have increased the Quality Indicator reporting requirements for Aged Care Providers. McLean Care has previously reported on pressure injuries, physical restraint and unplanned weight loss. Medication management and falls and major injuries have been added to the reportable Quality Indicators, along with updated requirements for previous Indicators.

This is a valuable method to ensure the quality of care provided to your loved one is demonstrated.
