Comments:Help on this term

Most recent data available for the 2016 National Healthcare Agreement performance reporting: 2014–15.

Commencing services receive accreditation for one year in the first instance, and are excluded from consideration until their first re-accreditation occurs.

Re-accreditation is provided for a period up to three years. Three year re-accreditation indicates that the facility:

  • meets all or almost all 44 expected outcomes and/or does not have any failure to meet the standards that compromises the health, safety or wellbeing of the residents;
  • has satisfied the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency (AACQA) that it will rectify any identified failure to meet the Accreditation Standards in a short timeframe;
  • is not in breach of any other significant obligations under the Aged Care Act 1997 notified to the AACQA by the Department of Social Services; and
  • has satisfied the AACQA that it undertakes continuous improvement.

Summary national and state/territory data appear in the annual report of the AACQA are also published in the annual Report on Government Services.
