Yes, Uprety Home Care is a registered NDIS provider.
Uprety Home Care being a registered NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) provider means that we are approved to offer services and support to individuals with disabilities who are participants in the NDIS program. It’s beneficial that we can offer services to participants with various plan management types, including plan-managed, self-managed, and agency-managed plans. This flexibility allows us to cater to a wider range of NDIS participants and provide them with the care and assistance they need. If you have any specific questions or if there’s anything else you’d like to know about NDIS or your services, feel free to contact us.
Yes, some task/duties related to disability-related health support can be assigned by a registered nurse to another qualified worker. A qualified support worker needs to have either qualification/ sufficient experience or exposure. This means that a trained worker, such as a support worker or enrolled nurse, will carry out the task on your behalf, rather than a registered nurse. This practice may assist participants in saving and staying in the NDIS budget/ allocated funds.
Our RN’s can also train and provide care plans to family members, friends, and caregivers to complete complex tasks.
To determine whether the support required can be delegated to nurse, support workers, family, caregivers, participants situation is assessed by NDIS planner. Information and data are gathered from a discharge planner, social workers, treating doctors/specialists and nurses CarePlan if a participant is transitioning form hospital to in-home care. If you are preparing to leave the hospital, we will gather this information from either your discharge plan or your most recent nurse care plan. The plan should be created by a treating clinician or a registered nurse.
The discharge plan or nurse care plan specifies:
– The tasks/duties that need to be provided
– Who is the most suitable person to provide the care
– individual needs
– The complexity of the tasks
– associated risks
Eventually, it is the registered nurse’s responsibility to decide whether a specific/ complex task can be delegated or not, as RN’s retain accountability for the care provided. Moreover, some tasks are ineligible for delegation and are carried out by a registered nurse. For example, Vac/ packed/ Negative pressure wound dressings, catheter changes, complex/ chronic wounds dressings, continence assessment,
Care plan or Nurse delegation is an RN (registered Nurse) attending to a NDIS participant for data collection of their medical/ disability history, background, and current problem, which is called an RN comprehensive assessment, and then creates an easy-to-read CarePlan for support workers. Bedside training is provided if requested.
Assessments, CarePlan and trainings are usually 5hours for 1 specific high intensity support.
Bedside training is a person/participant-centred training. Nurses provide person-centred- bedside training to support workers and a care plan to refer to at any time. You can contact us if the participant’s support needs increase and the care plan needs an update.
