Estia Welcomes Quality and Safety Commission
Estia Health has welcomed the creation of the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission announced by Aged Care Minister Ken Wyatt.
Estia CEO Norah Barlow said the Commission would be a single point of contact for providers, residents, and their families for regulatory and compliance matters, and complaints.
“Estia supports this reform which has been a long time coming. It is primarily about improving transparency and raising the quality benchmarks that homes must meet, and this is essential.”
“As is always the case, the devil will be in the detail and we look forward to working with Government to meet the 1 January implementation date.”
