The aged care sector is facing numerous challenges. The ANMF recognises that the right staffing levels and skills mix are fundamental to the care older Australians deserve.
ANMF have used evidence-based research and reports to create the Resident Assessment Scoring Tool© and the ANMF Residential Aged Care Staffing Calculator©
This calculator will show how your aged care facility staffing hours compare to:
- The Federal Government budgeted minutes of care in their response to the Royal Commission recommendations.
- The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety recommended minutes for staffing and skills mix; and the
- The ANMF recommended staffing numbers (Minutes) and skills mix (Ratio) resulting from our commissioned research.
You will get the best results using this tool if you are able to provide detailed staffing hours in conjunction with resident assessment information. However, if you don’t have that information, you will still be able to get some indicative information on the staffing levels of your site compared to the benchmarks.
Why use the calculator?
The ANMF Residential Aged Care Staffing Calculator© provides the opportunity for you to analyse your current staffing and skills mix and compare it against four staffing scenarios.
