Aged care facility. 65 beds. 1 of 10 owned by not for profit organisation. This facility has a Low income and manager has been moved to make changes. Difficulty in maintaining occupancy, unable to attract funded beds primarily concessional beds. Funding is tight at times staffing is limited. Staffing is difficult to retain, due to competitive employment opportunities. Currently setting up a strategy to uplift funding (called ACFI) benchmarks (nationwide)is $206 per resident per bed day currently sitting at $154 per resident per bed day. Goal to have 100% occupancy currently at 94%. personally showing rooms to potential funded residents to improve opportunity for funded beds. 53 bed of the 65 beds are concessional. Goal to drop to 40 leaving 15 beds for funded beds (Bonds/RADs). Change the set up of the facility to evenly spread the work load for staff so all high care residents are not in one section causing increased stress related to work load, offering incentives for staff retention. Aim: Increase funding, occupancy, retain staff, increase customer satisfaction with improved quality service delivery. Spread work load evenly regarding resident care needs. Currently very high care residents in two wings, low in one wing and mixed in one wing. Work load in mixed wing most successful, improved staff retention and less work cover claims.
