Aged Care

Marathon Health, Western NSW PHN and the Western NSW Local Health District have partnered together to bring the Residential Aged Care service to the Bathurst community.

Our goal is to ensure that Aged Care Residents receive the most appropriate care in the most appropriate setting.

 

This service offers a Clinical Nurse Consultant provides Aged Care Facilities information, clinical support and coordination of:

  • wounds
  • pain
  • continence
  • infections
  • fluid replacement
  • acute and chronic conditions
  • hospital interactions

 

The Clinical Nurse Consultant is designed to support staff in Residential Aged Care Facilities to:

  • Facilitate residents non-life threatening acute care needs

  • Manage symptoms within the facility, avoiding Emergency Department presentation

  • Communicate with Emergency Department staff upon presentation

  • Reduce the length of stay for hospital inpatients including:

    • - waiting for placement in a Residential Aged Care Facility
    • - or returning to a Residential Aged Care Facility

This service operates from 9am – 9pm weekdays and 12pm – 6pm weekends.
