2016 HESTA National Aged Care Awards
20 July 2016
Australia’s top aged care sector professionals have been recognised, with 14 finalists announced in the 2016 HESTA Aged Care Awards.
The Awards recognise those in the aged care sector who make an exceptional contribution to improving the quality of life for older Australians in three categories —Team Innovation, Outstanding Organisation and Individual Distinction. Macedon Ranges Health’s Camille Koch is a finalist in the Individual Distinction category.
Camille is a Registered Nurse at the Gisborne Oaks Residential Aged Care Facility, and has been recognised for her work in improving wound management through the establishment of a multi-disciplinary Wounds Resource Team — leading to improved practice, a reduction in the severity of wounds and better documentation.
HESTA CEO, Debby Blakey, said the finalists were selected from an outstanding field of nominations. “These finalists are finding innovative ways to improve the lives for clients and share a common unwavering commitment to provide the highest quality care. From pioneering improved practices to collaboratively finding new solutions to industry-wide challenges, our finalists are all leaders in their field and we’re proud to give them the recognition they deserve.”
Macedon Ranges Health CEO Don Tidbury said “Macedon Ranges Health is extremely proud to have Camille’s contribution to high quality resident care recognized at a national level.”
All finalists will be hosted by HESTA in Canberra at an Awards dinner on 4 August where the winners will be announced.
