Serious risk decision
Following a Review Audit conducted on 26 – 29 August 2019, a delegate of the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commissioner made a finding that Anglican Care failed to meet seven Aged Care Quality Standards (Quality Standards) in relation to Anglican Care Carey Bay Gardens.
On 28 October 2019 a decision was made that failure to meet one Quality Standard has placed the safety, health or well-being of aged care consumers 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.
