Structure of Residential Aged Care Homes at Autumn Aged Care
A Registered nurse is in charge on site 24/7. Lead by a Director of Nursing and Clinical Care Coordinators and supported by an Administration Manager, Quality and Education Coordinator, ACFI Coordinator and Roster Manager for daily operations and the coordination of clinical care.
Our homes consist of separate communities with qualified nurses leading each community along with well trained and supported carers working with a community staffing model that rosters the same staff in the same communities to foster continuity of care.
Our Registered Nurses oversee clinical portfolios as listed below ensuring best practise in clinical care.
These care portfolios ensure a strong focus on clinical excellence with education and training provided to all staff ongoing in a continuous improvement cycle. Equipment and resources are purchased to ensure the highest care delivery is possible that aligns to best practice and evidence. A Personal Care Assistant (PCA) Mentor is employed full time to support all care staff, providing an additional resource on-site for support of education and training.
