22 August 2016
Australia’s top aged care sector professionals were recognised in Canberra at the 2016 HESTA Aged Care Awards with Macedon Ranges Health’s (MRH) Camille Koch, RN winning the "Individual Distinction" Category.
The Awards recognise those in the aged care sector who make an exceptional contribution to improving the quality of life for older Australians.
Camille is a Registered Nurse at MRH’s 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.
Fourteen national finalists were celebrated at an event in Canberra on 4 August 2016, where the three overall winners were announced. They share in a $30,000 prize pool generously provided by longstanding Awards-supporter ME with each winner receiving $10,000 from the bank for further education or team development.
MRH 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. It is a great reflection on the commitment, care and support our people provide to our residents and clients on a daily basis”
