Details of corrective actions

Date of last audit: 22 July 2020

Outcome requiredFound at auditAction requiredRisk ratingAction statusDate action reported complete
A corrective action plan addressing areas requiring improvement in order to meet the specified Standard or requirements is developed and implemented.Where quality data collected indicated areas requiring improvements (examples include infections, falls, lacerations, fire safety and resident care plans), corrective action plans were not consistently documented. Where actions are documented they have not consistently been reviewed and signed out once completed. Ensure that all corrective action plans are documented, reviewed, and signed out once completed.

In assessing whether restraint will be used, appropriate factors are taken into consideration by a suitably skilled service provider. This shall include but is not limited to: (a) Any risks related to the use of restraint; (b) Any underlying causes for the relevant behaviour or condition if known; (c) Existing advance directives the consumer may have made; (d) Whether the consumer has been restrained in the past and, if so, an evaluation of these episodes; (e) Any history of trauma or abuse, whi… (this text has been trimmed due to space limits).One of the two files reviewed did not include documentation of an assessment and neither file reviewed included an assessment of the risks related to the use of bedrails used as a restraint. Document a comprehensive assessment for any resident using restraint and include an assessment of any risks related to the use of the restraint. PA LowReporting Complete15/03/2021
Approved restraint is only applied as a last resort, with the least amount of force, after alternative interventions have been considered or attempted and determined inadequate. The decision to approve restraint for a consumer should be made: (a) Only as a last resort to maintain the safety of consumers, service providers or others; (b) Following appropriate planning and preparation; (c) By the most appropriate health professional; (d) When the environment is appropriate and safe for successful … (this text has been trimmed due to space limits).One of the two files reviewed where restraint was used did not have strategies or interventions detailed in the long-term care plan. Ensure that the long-term care plan documents strategies and interventions relevant to the assessment. PA LowReporting Complete15/03/2021
Each episode of restraint is documented in sufficient detail to provide an accurate account of the indication for use, intervention, duration, its outcome, and shall include but is not limited to: (a) Details of the reasons for initiating the restraint, including the desired outcome; (b) Details of alternative interventions (including de-escalation techniques where applicable) that were attempted or considered prior to the use of restraint; (c) Details of any advocacy/support offered, provided o… (this text has been trimmed due to space limits).The two records reviewed did not include documentation in sufficient detail to provide an accurate account of the indication for use, intervention, duration, and its outcome as per 2.2.3.4. One of the two files reviewed where restraint was used did not include documentation of the frequency of monitoring of restraint when this was in use. Monitoring of the restraint for one resident was not as per that documented in the long-term care plan. Ensure that documentation for any resident using restraint is completed in sufficient detail to provide an accurate account of the indication for use, intervention, duration, and its outcome as per 2.2.3.4. Ensure that monitoring requirements are documented in the long-term care plan with these updated as changes occur. PA LowReporting Complete15/03/2021

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.
