Staffing Input Reporting by Aged Care Homes - Queensland Health

Catholic Health Australia has provided a submission to Queensland Health concerning public reporting of staffing input information under the Health Transparency Bill 2019 by aged care homes in Queensland.  While supporting the intention of the Bill in relation to greater public disclosure of service quality, Catholic Health Australia argues in the submission that the proposed publication of staffing input data focussed on personal care and nursing is of limited use to consumers and likely misleading, and that the more appropriate process for further improving public disclosure and service quality in relation to aged care services in Australia is to engage with the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety and, as appropriate, COAG processes.
