Southern Cross Care Tasmania (SCCT)
Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission (ACQSC) outcome following COVID-19 outbreaks at Guilford Young Grove (GYG) and Rosary Gardens (RG)
Changes to leadership at SCCT
Another lost facility manager at Rosary Gardens. Unfortunately, but not surprising to ANMF members, the new Facility Manager at Rosary Gardens, only lasted six days in the facility before resigning.
Apparently SCCT is close to finalising this issue. Please contact the ANMF with any further queries about this.
Lack of Clinical Leadership
The ANMF still encourages members to feedback issues related to absence or instability of leadership in SCCT sites, especially in Covid-19 management. Members are encouraged to look after themselves and their colleagues in these unreasonable situations. Use internal SCCT reporting systems, and escalate to next level management if you can, to highlight the impact on your workload and morale. Notify the ANMF if you are unable to get a response from your internal systems, and managers. Also, notify the ANMF if you are ordered to attend a one-to-one meeting so we can follow up and ensure procedural fairness and support.
