Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

ST John’s Vil­lage suc­cess­fully chal­lenged some of the in­for­ma­tion about the au­dit re­ported on the Aged Care Qual­ity Agency web­site.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion be­ing au­dited is al­lowed to make a sub­mis­sion to the qual­ity agency del­e­gate con­cern­ing the au­dit re­port.

On the ba­sis of the au­dit re­port and the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s sub­mis­sion, the qual­ity agency del­e­gate makes a de­ci­sion on which ‘ex­pected out­comes’ are met or not met.

The qual­ity agency then pub­lishes the au­dit re­port and the del­e­gate’s de­ci­sion.

While the as­ses­sor’s au­dit re­port for the St John’s Nurs­ing Home rec­om­mended the qual­ity agency del­e­gate find 17 ex­pected out­comes as not met, the del­e­gate found 13 ex­pected out­comes to be not met for the nurs­ing home.

The as­ses­sor’s au­dit re­port for the St John’s Hos­tel rec­om­mended the del­e­gate find 14 ex­pected out­comes as not met, but the del­e­gate found 12 ex­pected out­comes to be not met.

In­for­ma­tion pro­vided by St John’s about pain man­age­ment and skin care sat­is­fied the del­e­gate that res­i­dents did not die in pain, and that wound care was at­tended to.

The sub­mis­sion also left the del­e­gate sat­is­fied that ex­pected out­comes around ed­u­ca­tion and staff de­vel­op­ment, and in­for­ma­tion sys­tems, were met.
