Procedure

Summary

This procedure has been developed to provide a standardised foundation for the management of inpatients in WA Country Health Service (WACHS) who no longer require acute or subacute care and are waiting in a public hospital bed for Aged Care Services. It is for all WACHS staff involved in the care and discharge planning of older patients. Aged Care Services includes Commonwealth funded permanent residential aged care, Home Care Packages (HCP) and the Transition Care Program (TCP). Young people with disabilities under the age of 65 years are also included if they require permanent or respite care in a residential aged care facility when there is no other appropriate option in the disability sector. Patients requiring residential respite care and patients of Multi-Purpose Services (MPS) are excluded.
