Service delivery plans describe the required support and/or intervention to achieve the desired outcomes identified by the ongoing assessment process.Two of seven care plans did not address specific care needs. One was for a resident who required a splint; their care plan did not describe how and when to apply the splint. One resident with behaviours that challenge had well documented interventions to maintain and optimum environment, but no interventions to manage outbursts. Ensure care plans document care strategies for all identified needs. PA LowReporting Complete03/10/2016
The provision of services and/or interventions are consistent with, and contribute to, meeting the consumers' assessed needs, and desired outcomes.(i) Of the five identified wounds in the rest home: one did not state the wound type, one had no date for review and one had two dressing on one form making identification and evaluation of each wound difficult. In the hospital: one of five pressure injuries did not state the size of the wound. (ii) Pain assessments were not all consistently documented. In the rest home: two of three pain assessments did not document a score and one did not document pain level reviews as per care plan instru… (this text has been trimmed due to space limits).(i) Ensure that residents are reviewed by a registered nurse when there is a change in health status and that this is documented. (i) Ensure every wound has a comprehensive documented evaluation. (iii) Ensure monitoring occurs as required in the care plan. PA LowReporting Complete03/10/2016

(ii) In the hospital medication room, there were two bottles of eye drops in the medication trolley that had not been dated when they were opened. (i) Ensure the management and administration of warfarin is correct. (ii) Ensure all eye drops are dated on opening. PA ModerateReporting Complete03/10/2016

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.

Audit reports

Before you begin
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.
