COVID-19 and Aged Care: Some Previous Articles That Providers May Find Helpful


Since the COVID-19 pandemic commenced, Aged Care Essentials has provided articles to assist aged care providers in continuing to do what they do best - caring for residents. Below you'll find some of our most read articles of the last year.

There's also been a recent increase in downloads of CompliSpace's Infection Control Webinar - “Understanding the Gaps in Infection Control Plans that can put Residential Aged Care Facilities at Risk”. To understand more on what's in the webinar and to request your copy, click here.

Some of these articles include:

      1. NDIS Requirements For Aged Care: Are Your Worker Screening Checks Still Valid?
      2. Can Residential Aged Care Providers Insist That Staff Receive COVID-19 Vaccinations?
      3. Clinical Governance Requirements for COVID Vaccination Clinics at Residential Aged Care Facilities
      4. Managing COVID-19 in a Residential Aged Care Facility: The First 24 Hours Checklist UPDATED
      5. New COVID-19 Vaccination Reporting Requirements for Residential Aged Care and In-Home Care
      6. Aged Care Law Monitor January 2021: A Tool to Help you Stay Up to Date with Legal Changes

Perhaps now is the time to stop briefly, review the latest information and then plan for and develop mitigation strategies (treatments) and controls for the new risks that this Delta strain (and maybe other new strains) brings to your aged care facility.
