Using the new (or not so new) standards, areas for improvement in nutrition care can be linked back to each standard. This gives aged care homes very useful information to construct their improvement plans relating to each standard. NPA is the first team of Dietitians to use the new standards in this way.
Dunbar Homes have recently engaged NPA for a menu audit and this is what Stefan Orcish, Business & Operations Manager said:
This is the first time the menu review has been aligned directly and so clearly to the Quality Standards, and this really gives us clear insight into the areas we do well, and also areas we need to look at improving.
.. we are very happy with the way this audit was conducted, Letizia was fantastic and the audit tool is the best we have seen in our time!.
Covid -19 might be putting each aged care home under pressure but NPA can assist organisations to ensure the residents' care continues to meet high standards. We can conduct the audit remotely if visiting is prohibited. Call or email us directly.
