Details of corrective actions

Date of last audit: 07 February 2017

Outcome requiredFound at auditAction requiredRisk ratingAction statusDate action reported complete
Quality improvement data are collected, analysed, and evaluated and the results communicated to service providers and, where appropriate, consumers.There was no documented evidence that the resident/relative survey has been completed in 2016 as per the schedule. Since the draft report the service has advised that a 2017 survey has been circulated, and they have 16 replies so far. An independent person is set up to analyse them. Ensure that the resident/relative survey is completed annually as per the schedule. PA LowReporting Complete17/05/2017
A medicines management system is implemented to manage the safe and appropriate prescribing, dispensing, administration, review, storage, disposal, and medicine reconciliation in order to comply with legislation, protocols, and guidelines.The evening dose of insulin had been changed on the medication chart for one resident but the previous insulin dose had been administered on four consecutive days. The risk is reduced from high to moderate due to twice daily blood sugar monitoring. Ensure the medication chart is checked for insulin dose prior to administration. PA ModerateReporting Complete19/05/2017
Professional qualifications are validated, including evidence of registration and scope of practice for service providers.Three of six staff files reviewed did not have documented evidence of reference checks being completed. Ensure that all staff have two reference checks completed as per the recruitment policy. PA LowReporting Complete30/08/2017
The provision of services and/or interventions are consistent with, and contribute to, meeting the consumers' assessed needs, and desired outcomes.Falls risk assessments are completed as part of the admission assessment and six monthly review. Long-term care plans include a mobility focus with appropriate falls prevention in four of five long-term care plans reviewed. There were no documented interventions or fall prevention strategies for one rest home resident who has had frequent falls in the last three months. Ensure there are documented interventions and falls prevention strategies for residents who fall. PA LowReporting Complete30/08/2017

Guide to table

Outcome required

The outcome required by the Health and Disability Services Standards.

Found at audit

The issue that was found when the rest home was audited.

Action required

The action necessary to fix the issue, as decided by the auditor.

Risk level

Whether the required outcome was partially attained (PA) or unattained (UA), and what the risk level of the issue is.

The outcome is partially attained when:

  • there is evidence that the rest home has the appropriate process in place, but not the required documentation
  • when the rest home has the required documentation, but is unable to show that the process is being implemented.

The outcome is unattained when the rest home cannot show that they have the needed processes, systems or structures in place.

The risk level is determined by two things: how likely the issue is to happen and how serious the consequences of it happening would be.

The risk levels are:

  • negligible – this issue requires no additional action or planning.
  • low – this issue requires a negotiated plan in order to fix the issue within a specified and agreed time frame, such as one year.
  • moderate – this issue requires a negotiated plan in order to fix the issue within a specific and agreed time frame, such as six months.
  • high – this issue requires a negotiated plan in order to fix the issue within one month or as agreed between the service and auditor.
  • critical – This issue requires immediate corrective action in order to fix the identified issue including documentation and sign off by the auditor within 24 hours to ensure consumer safety.

The risk level may be downgraded once the rest home reports the issue is fixed.

Action status

Whether the necessary action is still in progress or if it is complete, as reported by the rest home to the relevant district health board.

Date action reported complete

The date that the district health board was told the issue was fixed.

Before you download the audit reports, please read our guide to rest home certification and audits which gives an overview of the auditing process and explains what the audit reports mean.

What’s on this page?

Audit reports for this rest home’s latest audits can be downloaded below.

Full audit reports are provided for audits processed and approved after 29 August 2013.  Note that the format for the full audit reports was streamlined from 16 December 2014.  Full audit reports between 29 August 2013 and 16 December 2014 are therefore in a different format. 

Prior to 29 August 2013, only audit summaries are available.

Both the recent full audit reports and previous audit summaries include:

  • an overview of the rest home’s performance, and
  • coloured indicators showing how well the rest home performed against the different aspects of the Health and Disability Services Standards.

Note: From November 2013, as rest homes are audited, any issues from their latest audit (the corrective actions required by the auditor) will appear on the rest home’s page. As the rest home completes the required actions, the status on the web site will update.
