These Standards cover areas such as Management systems, staffing and organisational development, health and personal care, Resident lifestyle and physical environment and also, safe systems.
Merrimac Park Private Care underwent a three day Accreditation Audit at the beginning of September and we are pleased to announce the results. Merrimac Park Private Care passed with 100% compliance and achieved the highest possible result of 44 out of 44 outcomes being met.
These fantastic results reflect our Management Team and their continual efforts to provide the absolute best care and lifestyle in a Residential Aged Care Home for our Residents. With over 100 staff and 96 places we pride ourselves on striving to provide a home like environment in which we deliver care.
During the three day audit the auditors met with 11 Residents and Resident Representatives, they also meet with 22 staff members and noted that they received no complaints or negative feedback, which is remarkable. Some of the outstanding feedback from the auditors included, “Residents and relatives comments were 100% positive” and “The auditors felt that all areas of clinical care delivery were excellent”.
With a hands on approach to management, our Centre Manager Kevin Landles said “This result was an indication of the excellent work carried out by the entire staff team.” With the full support of an experienced Residential Aged Care Home provider behind him and a committed team of staff, Kevin has a strong vision for the future of Merrimac Park Private Care.
