Welcome to the final issue of the RACC for 2017. It has been an amazingly busy year with residential aged care often being in the news. This is a mixed blessing as it highlights the dedication of staff and the need for change, but it also creates an atmosphere of fear and dread for those older residents and their families.
This report is the culmination of an in-depth analysis of injury-related deaths of residents living in accredited Australian RACS. The seven topics of focus comprised: choking; medication; physical restraint; resident-to-resident aggression (RRA); respite; suicide; and unexplained absence.
