Serious risk decision
Following an assessment contact conducted on 10 September 2019, a delegate of the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commissioner made a finding that Adelene Retirement Village failed to meet two Aged Care Quality Standards (Quality Standards) in relation to Adelene Nursing Home.
On 8 November 2019 a decision was made that failure to meet two Quality Standards has placed the safety, health or well-being of an aged care consumer of the service at serious risk. The Department of Health has been notified of the risk.
Serious risk is not an ongoing state; it is a statutory decision based on evidence at a point in time.
