The Australian Government Department of Health has bought in legislation on the 18th of March 2020 requiring every person going into an aged care facility to have evidence of a current flu vaccine.
From the Australian Government Department of Health website
Does everyone entering a residential aged care service need to be vaccinated?
Yes. This applies to staff, visitors, health practitioners, volunteers, and others (for
example, cleaners, tradesman, gardeners, maintenance staff).
- You must collect a current flu vaccine certificate
- You are not allowed onsite if under 16
- Many customers (Aged Care is now compulsory) are now temperature checking any person coming on-site and recording the details.
- Most customers are setting up an onboarding process for new visitors.
Let Visitor Management help you comply!
Stop non-compliant people signing in
You can also load the details of the flu vaccine certificate including expiry dates against the profile of regular visitors like family members of residents. This allows fast sign in each time the family members attend the location while the expiry dates of the vaccination are automatically checked.
You can be notified immediately when any person tries to sign in without evidence of a flu vaccine certificate.
“The Public Health (COVID-19 Residential Aged Care Facilities – RACF) Order 2020 – under Clause 5, persons are not to enter or remain on premises of a RACF if the person has a temperature higher than 37.5 degrees or symptoms of acute respiratory infection.”
You can also easily record who took the temperature reading.
We can have your location complying with the Australian Government Department of Health legislation quickly.
