Since August 2017 Aged Care Management Australia ( ACMA) has been engaged continuously in the management of sanctions and non-compliance ( to prevent sanctions) . Appointment as advisors and administrators on the Central Coast NSW, the ACT, Regional and metropolitan South Australia and Perth have all resulted in either the prevention of sanctions being applied or in the resolution of sanctions within the sanction period. These contracts involved a combination of residential and home care operations.
This follows on from our earlier work in the management of sanctions which started in 2010 in Wollongong NSW. ACMA was the first advisory service appointed to the management of sanctions in remote Indigenous Home Care programs in the Northern Territory.
Since the introduction of the new Aged Care Quality Standards 01 July 2019, ACMA has been engaged by Service Providers and the Aged Care Industry Association South Australia to translate new policy initiatives and directions into practical strategies that respond to both new regulatory requirements and the emerging trends in service delivery models. Our education encompasses staffing models, nursing practice, consumer engagement and practical solutions to ensure safe and quality care delivery.
Our team has significant sector experience and is adept in building constructive relationships with the shared goal of harnessing the strengths and capabilities of all stakeholders to address issues and achieve the best possible outcome. Our operational knowledge and understanding of the key issues is invaluable to overcoming barriers and influencing Boards and Executive views on alternative strategies.
