The Aged Care Complaints Scheme has just released an Industry feedback alert about the use of bed poles in aged care services. It can be found in the Industry toolkit.
The alert is based on the NSW Coroner’s findings into an inquest related to the use of bed poles in residential aged care homes. We encourage all approved providers to:
- read the report, which can be found online on the NSW Government Lawlink website
- make key personnel aware of the information in the report and this alert
- take action if appropriate.
