Opt in to CareLynx's 24/7 RN on call service
Does your residential aged care facility have enough Registered Nurses to confirm to the new 24/7 RN on duty requirements?
The new requirement for residential aged care facilities to have a Registered Nurse (RN) on duty 24/7 is a significant change that has been put in place to improve the quality and safety of care provided to elderly residents. However, many facilities, particularly those in rural and remote areas, may struggle to meet this requirement due to various challenges such as limited availability of healthcare professionals.
The good news is that there is an exemption clause and funding supplement available to help residential aged care facilities with 60 residents or fewer per day meet this requirement. The exemption is designed to assist facilities located in Modified Monash Model (MMM) 5, 6, or 7 areas, which are typically rural and remote regions where accessing healthcare services can be more challenging.
To be eligible for the exemption, facilities must have 30 or fewer operational places and have appropriate alternative clinical care arrangements in place. This is where CareLynx 24/7 RN on call service can play a crucial role. CareLynx offers a solution supporting with the “appropriate alternative clinical care” required to meet the exemption conditions.
CareLynx Registered Nurses are available remotely, on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, ensuring that your facility always has access to qualified nursing professionals. By engaging the services of CareLynx, you can provide the necessary evidence to support the clinical gap for the exemption requirement. This can enhance the overall care and well-being of your residents.
