Bupa takes action following spate of sanctions

Published

For-profit aged care provider Bupa is committed to taking action to meet the standards expected by its residents and the community, its interim chief operating officer tells Australian Ageing Agenda.

The national provider, which has more than 70 residential aged care facilities, received its ninth sanction in less than 6 months on 7 December 2018 in relation to its facility in Eden, New South Wales.

Sanctions can be applied to individual aged care facilities if the Department of Health believes there is a risk to the safety, health or wellbeing of anyone at the facility or if it has not rectified an issue in the agreed period following a non-compliance notice.

A sanction usually means a facility cannot accept new residents for a period of six months.
