Stella Maris Aged Care Cronulla Receives Perfect Score
The Sisters of Mercy Parramatta are exceptionally pleased and proud to have Stella Maris, our Residential Aged Care Facility in Cronulla, receive 44/44 with no recommendations for improvement, in this week's accreditation process.
As an approved provider of a Residential Aged Care Facility, Stella Maris is required to comply with Accreditation Standards which are articulated in the Quality of Care Principles 2014.
These Quality of Care Principles, are comprised of 4 Standards, 4 Principles and 44 expected outcomes. The 4 standards are:
- Management systems, staffing and organisational development
- Health and Personal Care
- Care recipient lifestyle
- Physical environment and safe systems
In assessing the compliance of Stella Maris with these Accreditation Standards, the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency visited the Facility over a period of 2-3 days this week, inspecting the facility itself, as well as reviewing documentation, policies, procedures and practice. There are also opportunities for Staff, residents and their families to provide feedback to the Assessors.
For each of the 44 expected outcomes which flow from the 4 standards and 4 principles, Stella Maris was not only found to be fully compliant, but there were no recommendations for improvement.
Stella Maris has a long history of delivering compassionate, high quality, residential care to the frail, elderly members of Cronulla and surrounding areas. The Sisters of Mercy are delighted that this Accreditation outcome, again reflects the dedication and commitment of our the wonderful Stella Maris Staff, Board, and the management provided by St Vincent's Health Australia.
