Aged Care Royal Commission: representing a top 30 national aged care provider

Piper Alderman represented a Top 30 national aged care provider in relation to initial enquiries made by the Aged Care Royal Commission into its operations and governance.

Team: Tom Griffith, Antony Disciscio, James Nunn

Service: Commissions & Inquiries | Dispute Resolution & Litigation
Sector: Aged Care & Senior Living | Not-for-Profit

The work required a familiarity with the relevant regulatory framework, and an ability to provide legal perspectives on clinical governance issues.

Against strict and short time deadlines Piper Alderman’s team advised and assisted in the systematic review and evaluation of critical incidents during the last 10 years.

Piper Alderman also prepared detailed summaries for the provider to submit to the Commission. Despite the fact that a significant volume of work was required to be performed over the Christmas/New Year period Piper Alderman displayed great agility and flexibility to assemble an effective and efficient team, who collectively helped ensure that our client was able to meet the Commission’s deadline.
