Serious risk decision
On 4 December 2018 a delegate of the CEO of the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency made a decision in relation to RFBI Bellingen Masonic Village that failure to meet two expected outcomes in the Accreditation Standards has placed the safety, health or wellbeing of care recipients of the service at serious risk.
An assessment contact was conducted on 8 January 2019 at RFBI Bellingen Masonic Village to monitor the service’s progress. The Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission found the service complies with all Accreditation Standards.
Serious risk is not an ongoing state; it is a statutory decision based on evidence at a point in time.
