The 200 minutes of care per day (including 40 minutes of Registered Nurse time) are an average target across the sector. Each facility will have a unique care time target, depending on the AN-ACC case mix classification of their residents, at a point in time.
This means that as the AN-ACC case mix classification changes within a site, the subsidy paid by the minute changes. Each facility will have a different care minute target and funding in line with their residents’ care needs.
Last October saw the introduction of care minute reporting and from July 2022 this will be included in the Quarterly Financial Report. Over the next couple of years, the new Government’s election promises will also kick in.
The key dates are:
- 1 Oct 2022 200 mins and 40 mins RN – Star Rating
- 1 Oct 2023 Mandatory 200/40 mins
- 1 July 2023 24/7 RN
- 1 Oct 2024 Mandatory 215 mins and 44 mins RN
This will mean that watching your care minutes change will be an important part of predicting your future workforce demands.
Through our work transitioning aged care clients from ACFI to AN-ACC, we field lots of questions related to care minutes and rostering. We will share these insights and answer some of your key questions at this webinar.
This webinar will explore
- What is meant by the target care minutes requirement
- How to plan to meet the care minute requirements in advance
- Developing roster scenarios based on occupancy and case mix
- Quarterly reporting and why this is important for your star rating
- Care minutes and compliance
We’ll also be joined by a panel of industry leaders who will share how they are approaching it.
