Aged-care provider faces prosecution for safety lapses during COVID

It came with some surprise when Victoria’s safety regulator began prosecution against an aged-care provider. The provider’s alleged fault: failing to manage a COVID outbreak among its staff and patients.

What happened? In a media release, WorkSafe Victoria alleges that in July 2020, the provider was notified by a staffer of a positive COVID test.

The provider, as the claim goes, neglected its duty of care obligation, failing to do the following:

  • Require workers to wear personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Train workers how to safely use PPE
  • Verify that staff were competent in using PPE Tell staff when PPE should be used
  • Supervise the use of PPE

What followed, alleges WorkSafe Victoria, was an outbreak within the facility; over 175 residents and staffers tested positive for COVID. Forty-five residents died from COVID- related health complications.
