Serious risk decision
Following a review audit conducted on 4 - 6 March 2019, a delegate of the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commissioner made a decision that Pioneer House Living Limited failed to meet 21 expected outcomes in the Accreditation Standards in relation to Pioneer House Aged Care.
On 26 April 2019 a decision was made that failure to meet one of these expected outcomes has placed the safety, health or wellbeing of consumers of the service at serious risk. The Department of Health has been notified of the risk.
Serious risk is not an ongoing state; it is a statutory decision based on evidence at a point in time.
The Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission will continue to monitor the performance of the service including through unannounced visits.
