Serious risk decision
On 29 August 2018 a delegate of the CEO of the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency made a decision that failure by ACDMA Aged Hostel to meet two expected outcomes in the Accreditation Standards placed the safety, health or wellbeing of a care recipient of the service at serious risk.
A site audit was conducted by the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission (Commission) from 9 January 2019 to 10 January 2019 at ACDMA Aged Hostel to assess the performance of the service against the Accreditation Standards. The Commission found the service complies with all Accreditation Standards.
Serious risk is not an ongoing state; it is a statutory decision based on evidence at a point in time.
The Commission will continue to monitor the performance of the service including through unannounced visits.
