Home name: Bupa Calwell RACS ID: 2948 1 Dates of audit: 12 July 2016 to 14 July 2016 Audit Report Bupa Calwell 2948 Approved provider: Bupa Care Services Pty Limited Introduction This is the report of a re-accreditation audit from 12 July 2016 to 14 July 2016 submitted to the Quality Agency.
Accredited residential aged care homes receive Australian Government subsidies to provide quality care and services to care recipients in accordance with the Accreditation Standards. To remain accredited and continue to receive the subsidy, each home must demonstrate that it meets the Standards.
There are four Standards covering management systems, health and personal care, care recipient lifestyle, and the physical environment and there are 44 expected outcomes such as human resource management, clinical care, medication management, privacy and dignity, leisure interests, cultural and spiritual life, choice and decision-making and the living environment. Each home applies for re-accreditation before its accreditation period expires and an assessment team visits the home to conduct an audit. The team assesses the quality of care and services at the home and reports its findings about whether the home meets or does not meet the Standards.
The Quality Agency then decides whether the home has met the Standards and whether to re-accredit or not to re-accredit the home. Assessment team’s findings regarding performance against the Accreditation Standards The information obtained through the audit of the home indicates the home meets: 44 expected outcomes

Home name: Bupa Calwell RACS ID: 2948 6 Dates of audit: 12 July 2016 to 14 July 2016 Assessment information This section covers information about the home’s performance against each of the expected outcomes of the Accreditation Standards. Standard 1 – Management systems, staffing and organisational development Principle: Within the philosophy and level of care offered in the residential care service, management systems are responsive to the needs of care recipients, their representatives, staff and stakeholders, and the changing environment in which the service operates. 1.1 Continuous improvement This expected outcome requires that “the organisation actively pursues continuous improvement”.
Team’s findings The home meets this expected outcome Bupa Calwell (the home) opened in late 2015 and participates in a program of organisational audits to review and monitor the quality of service delivery. An audit schedule guides the management team with the program of audits to be conducted across a range of clinical, environmental and administrative areas. The audits results are entered onto the home’s continuous improvement plan as well as a computerised system which enables senior management at the organisation’s head office to monitor any audit trends as well as ensuring audits are being completed.
Additional audits can be undertaken if issues are identified and external audit teams from within the organisation can be called in to conduct audits on specific topics if required. Improvements are also sourced via continuous improvement logs, confidential continuous improvement logs and verbal complaints. Feedback is also sought through the staff, care recipient and representative meetings. A sample of improvements relating to Standard One includes the following: The general manager advised that some staff files had come to the home when these staff members had been transferred from other homes within the group.
A review of the personnel files identified information was not always filed in a consistent manner and some key information was missing from files. Follow-up has been undertaken with the human resource recruitment centre to track down missing documents. Administration staff have been progressively working through staff files to ensure information is filed appropriately to enable management to track information when needed. The general manager advised the administration staff now have a work instruction to guide them with filing requirements.
The general manager advised that the home undertook a review of the work instruction for the education program and identified that the instructions were not being followed. A training needs analysis was issued to staff to enable them to record their training and education requests. This information was then entered into a matrix to identify the most popular requests for education topics as well as their preferred form of education delivery. This information is now being used to further develop the education program. Pre and post education evaluation forms are being reviewed to glean any information which can be used to develop and improve the education sessions.
