Monash Health will now begin reviewing its ‘single employer’ model for employees who work across multiple residential sites to ensure we have a safe and practical approach to care at our facilities.
With a high percentage of our aged care residents and employees now vaccinated, and in line with COVID-19 restrictions easing in Victoria, where it is impractical to continue with single site arrangements we will begin allowing employees to work across multiple sites. However, we will continue to have tight controls in place to protect our residents.
In line with the Federal Government’s ‘Guiding Principles for residential aged care‘ all employees entering any of our campuses are required to complete their attestation and go through the worker screening process. Employees that have worked at other facilities must recomplete the Employee Workplace Declaration form and flag this with their manager.
If any COVID 19 red zones emerge across Victoria, any Monash Health employee living or working in that zone will not be permitted to work until cleared. Also, any employee working in a facility with an outbreak will not be permitted to work across sites.
For further details, we encourage you to speak with your manager.
