In June 2020, a small Residential Aged Care facility in Victoria, Edith Bendall Lodge, had an unannounced Monitoring Assessment with the Commission. Three assessors arrived at around 9:30am to review the Home’s systems in line with COVID-19 and infection prevention and control. Related systems were also explored at this time including stock supplies, non-clinical areas (laundry, cleaning and food services), and management and Governance systems.
The assessors completed the visit in 3 hours, with everything reviewed found as meeting the requirements of the Quality Standards that were reviewed.
CompliSpace have been working with the Home in a consulting capacity, as well as implementing the CompliCare system with the management team.
The Director of Nursing, Martha Weson, was able to demonstrate:
“It was definitely a surprise to receive a phone call from the ACQASC to be informed following a phone screening that we were about to have an unannounced visit focusing on our preparedness for COVID-19. However, the assessors were great and due to the hard work attended over the last few months with Ruth Greene from CompliSpace using the CompliCare system, we were able to obtain a great result!” Martha Weston, Director of Nursing
