Working Together to Deliver Better Staffing in Aged Care Facilities10 August 2023
The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF) and its members have welcomed new data showing that the overwhelming majority of aged care facilities across the country have implemented 24/7 registered nursing (RN) staffing levels.
Since the start of the new requirements on 1 July, the Government has reported that ‘86% of facilities now have a nurse on site 24/7’, with the ‘majority of the remaining homes are very close to 24/7 coverage’.
ANMF Federal Secretary Annie Butler said the data demonstrated that the Government continued to deliver on its election commitment to fixing aged care by implementing one of the key recommendations of the Royal Commission.
