Accreditations

Like all accredited aged care homes, The Laurels is subject to a regular series of support contacts conducted by the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission. The purpose of which is to monitor our ongoing compliance with the Accreditation Standards and the Aged Care Act.

A support contact involves an unannounced visit to the home by the commission’s quality assessors. A support contact generally lasts one-day and involves an overview of our performance against certain aspects of care or services.

We are also subject to 3 yearly Re-accreditation audits. This involves 2 quality assessors being onsite for 2 days. This audit is to assess our performance against all the 8 Aged Care Standards.

The Laurels most recent re-accreditation audit was completed on the 5th June 2019 and we were assessed as meeting all the required outcomes.

UPA has annual internal Quality Review audits as an ongoing part of the organisations Quality Improvement program. The audits are conducted by external consultants who have an extensive experience in the aged care sector. Our last audit was undertaken in March 2019 and resulted in all standards being rated as met.
