The aged care sector is a crucial component of our community and one which requires dedicated support workers going above and beyond to provide their clients with a better quality lifestyle at the time when they need it most.
There are countless roles and professions within the aged care sector, each of which presents its own risks to the people who fill these positions. If you work with the elderly in any capacity, it’s important that you protect yourself against potential Public Liability claims and similar risks.
This includes everyone from individual aged care contractors, right through to healthcare organisation owners, managers, board members and so on. Other potential risks within the aged sector include:
Lifting, supporting and transporting patients
Moving and handling beds, mattresses, trolleys, wheelchairs and similar equipment
Bullying and harassment
The most recent Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality & Safety called for fundamental and systemic aged care reform. At Ansvar Insurance, we pay close attention to positive changes and promising advancements occurring in the industry, so that we can continue to provide targeted insurance packages that put our clients’ minds at ease.
There are numerous complex challenges for aged care providers, changing funding models, transition to consumer-directed care and an aged care workforce that will need to expand at a time of “age induced” tightening of the overall labour market.
These changes reflect the complex and fast-moving risk context that our aged care customers are operating. Ansvar Insurance assists our customers to manage risk by providing a range of aged care tools and resources.
Ansvar Insurance can also provide a variety of educational workshops, state-of-the-art software and other useful resources for helping our clients manage potential risks.
