Do you have a process for identifying and managing consumers who are deemed at high risk as per legislative requirements in home care?
In September 2020, the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission issued guidance regarding vulnerable consumers who may at risk. This requires providers to have specific measures in place to identify and monitor these vulnerable consumers.
