As nurses within the specialty of aged care we are required to comply with both the Registered Nurses Standards for Practice, particularly “Maintain the capability for practice” as well as the Aged Care Quality Standards.At times these place us and our consumers in the challenging position of managing consumers choices, delegation of care to other staff and the requirement of best practice clinical responses to rapid changes in our consumers health status. The new Serious Incident Response Scheme adds further pressure to ensuring we comply with the rigorous process of documenting the risk management process and outcome. The diagnosis and management of Diabetes in an older person can have significant quality of life and medical implications and requires a skilled health professional to assist the consumer to achieve their preferred outcomes and goals.
