Our Priority is Protecting Older Australians

 

Moran Health Care Group have been working closely with the team at Moran Kellyville to protect the residents in our care.  Part of this protection is to support and enable our employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19.  “Keeping our residents and those who care for them safe in the global pandemic is a top priority,” said Nelly Banag, General Manager, Moran Kellyville

“We have been working hard for months now to ensure all our employees have had a Covid-19 vaccine prior to the introduction of mandatory vaccination on 17 September 2021.”

“Our vaccination rates are very high we have 99% of employees with at least one dose of the vaccine or more and 95% of residents vaccinated. We have worked with our local GPs to supplement the commonwealth vaccination program for residents.  Our goal now is to encourage family members and friends to get themselves vaccinated and send us evidence of their vaccination status so that when we can welcome visitors to our Home we can do so safely.

“We achieved high vaccination rates in early June by worked closely with our management team to support discussions with team members, answering their questions and discussing issues related to the mandating of vaccination.  The vaccination teams at Sonic and HCA were also a big part of our vaccination success rate.   Additionally, we deployed a team member to physically book appointments for employees who were struggling to schedule their own vaccination and residents actively advocated and encouraged employees to have the vaccination to play their part to keep everyone safe.”

Moran Kellyville residents and their families have shown a keen interest in the vaccination rates of residents and closely follow the vaccination coverage of employees. Residents have openly discussed that they want all staff to be vaccinated in the home and our employees have also told us that they prefer to work with staff members who are vaccinated. Both parties want to know that their Moran Home is a COVID safe place for them to live and work.

“We are proud to protect ourselves, our workforce, our residents and the broader community by supporting all employees and residents to have access to vaccines.” said Nelly Banag
