Model pack for care time reporting assessments

A person is reviewing documents on a desk, using a pen to make notes. The workspace is well-lit and organized, featuring a plant and office supplies.

We have created a model pack to help providers prepare for their care time reporting assessment.

Care time reporting assessments check the accuracy of care minutes and information that residential aged care providers report on. You can find more information in the care minutes and 24/7 registered nurse responsibility guide.

Care minutes are the amount of direct care that people living in an aged care home receive from:

  • registered nurses
  • enrolled nurses
  • personal care workers
  • assistants in nursing.

The 24/7 RN responsibility means at least one registered nurse needs to be onsite and on duty at all times.

The model pack explains how to correctly present information that may be requested during a care time reporting assessment.

Understanding reporting requirements helps reduce the time needed to produce reports and improves the quality of data. It also means providers get the right amount of funding.

Visit the care time reporting assessments webpage to learn more about the model pack.

Use the My Aged Care ‘Find a provider’ tool to see care minutes and 24/7 registered nurse information for aged care homes.
