We safely store, administer and document medications, monitor the effects of medications and work to prevent errors or incidents.
We listen to our clients and support them to decide what, how, when and where their services should be delivered and who should deliver them. Our person-centred framework supports our clients in a collaborative and cooperative way and puts the client and others who are important in their life at the centre of service planning activities.
Under the NSW Children and Young Persons (Care and Protection) Act 1988 and the ACT Children and Young People Act 2008, Cerebral Palsy Alliance is a mandatory reporter. This means that where staff/volunteers believe that there is a risk of significant harm to a child’s or young person’s safety, welfare or wellbeing, these concerns must be reported to the Department of Communities and Justice.
Cerebral Palsy Alliance maintains high standards of health and safety for clients, visitors and staff. Where a child or adult requires lifting during a visit to a CPA site, our staff will provide guidance on safe lifting practices and transfers, e.g. out of/into a vehicle. Your Client Relationship Manager can provide further information and assistance where required.
We aim to provide safe services for all people accessing supports and services from Cerebral Palsy Alliance. If an incident does occur during service provision, Cerebral Palsy Alliance will act to safeguard the wellbeing of the individuals impacted. All incidents will be responded to, reported, recorded, investigated and finalised in an effective, consistent and timely manner, and in accordance with legislative and contractual requirements. All staff are trained in responding to and reporting incidents. As required by law, we report serious incidents to the NDIS Commission or other relevant external authorities.
