Testimonial from Tainui Village – New Plymouth

Coming from a background of many years in QA, HSE and Electronic Document Management in the Oil and Gas Industry entering the aged care sector was a huge “eye opener”.  After sitting through several handovers and meetings and listening to discussions on medications etc I felt as if I was listening to a foreign language.  Oh my goodness I thought and then Gillian’s documentation arrived together with a visit from her shortly after.

Upon reading one policy everything fell neatly into place. I found her documentation to be outstanding.  It is very reassuring to know that every policy and procedure is the most up to date and designed to meet audit requirements.  All her forms are easily accessible and very user friendly.   We can instantly benchmark against others.  At the click of a button we can analyse falls, infections and adverse events.   Creating graphs and other information for Board reports takes minutes rather than hours.

Gillian’s enthusiasm and commitment for both the aged care sector and her documentation is contagious.  I feel I can now discuss, with the knowledge I have acquired in a few short months, aspects of aged care I never knew existed.  Gillian is only a phone call or email away and all queries are always answered promptly, no matter how minor.

 

Thank you very much Gillian.

Testimonial from Shoal Bay Villa Dementia Care

Dear Gillian

As noted previously, I have sold my business.  Thanks so much for your fabulous support and encouragement and especially the ‘find me’ conversations we had; so without much ado, I will say ‘cherrio’ and depart quietly.

I wish you the very best going forward with all your ventures and I am sure you have something new on the go as you never seem to sit still….

Warmest regards

Attendee Testimonial for Aged Care Education Study Day – July 2017

Topics included: Quality & Risk Management, Clinical Leadership, Clinical Documentation, EPoA, ARRC, Communication and Difficult Conversations

 

I am writing this endorsement on behalf of my colleague and myself, in relation to our attendance at the study day you hosted 5 July 2017.

The topics you presented were most relevant to our Registered Nurse role within the aged care sector, and between us both provided new learning opportunities, as well as refreshing the current knowledge we already held.

You addressed each session in a professional and engaging manner that held our attention, complemented by comprehensive written material as well as PowerPoint presentations, along with plenty of opportunity for questions and comments from the floor.

Gillian you are one of very few speakers that is able to hold my attention for more than one session let alone a whole study day, a perfect balance between speech and conversational styles!

We were also most impressed by the quality of the complementary gift bag that was given to each attendee containing not only goodies to help us through the day, but with something to take back to the workplace, I acknowledge both Cubro and Ebos for their support with this.

The venue was great with easy access and good parking, and it was clean and refreshing providing plenty of comfort and personal space for those attending. I will be recommending my associates to make a note in their diary for next time. Thank you Gillian

Kind regards

RN – Manager, Kaiapoi Lodge Resthome and Hospital – February 2017

We are a medium sized rest home and hospital. The complexities of the various standards means that without a product such as HCSL we would find it difficult to function. Health Care Compliance Solutions Ltd has ensured we stay up to date and compliant in all areas of our industry.

The recent introduction of the online tool has been a massive invaluable boost, all staff now have access to the latest documents online.

Never before have we been able to compare ourselves against industry. Instant access to current documents, analysis of events and graphical representation are just a click away. Adverse events and infections are recorded and compared against industry.  The ability to log complaints, restraints and complete internal audit has aided in our ability to close the quality circle.

With HCSL we no longer need to worry about the policies and procedures we just need to focus on the implementation.

Village Manager – Chatswood Retirement Village

I have found that having Gillian’s (the HCSL) system available has been a huge help to our village. Documents are easily accessible at my fingertips and it hasn’t taken long to memorise some of the codes for the more frequently used ones.

 

If we are having trouble finding a document or we want to make any adjustments, Gillian is always very accommodating and helpful. She is easily contacted by telephone or email and if she is busy, always gets back to me as soon as she is able to. I particularly like that if I want to type into a document, Gillian makes this available.

 

When the documents are due for updating, Gillian takes care of this, printing all of the documents and putting them into new folders for us. She even delivers them personally, which is always a pleasure. I find Gillian very approachable and extremely knowledgeable and happy to share her knowledge.

 

Gillian assists us with our training requirements by coming to Chatswood and going through the annual compulsory subjects with myself and my staff. She is great at presenting and the passion about her work shows in the way she shares her own experiences with us.

 

I look forward to our continued working relationship.

Owner / Manager – Springlands Lifestyle Village

Being the Manager of a facility who does not have a clinical background, I have found Gillian to be of huge support. She has a great understanding of the Aged Residential Care industry and is a wealth of knowledge. She has been nothing but supportive since we introduced her (the HCSL) policies and procedures into the facility in 2012.  Having her expertise on hand has been hugely beneficial for the Village.

Gillian also visits the facility twice a year providing education sessions which are both informative and engaging.  Staff have commented positively on her ability to share real life experiences during these sessions which show her true passion for what she does and the service we are here to provide.

Gillian is respected by staff, management and Governance of Springlands Lifestyle Village and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who is looking for a healthcare consultant who is knowledgeable, understanding and professional. She is committed to helping you improve the service you provide to your Residents.

“I was referred to Gillian Robinson (HSCL) through a colleague as I knew I needed expertise help when starting out in the aged care industry. Little did I know I would get the best!
Working alongside someone as passionate as Gillian is a privilege which reflects the level of commitment she makes to you as a client. From the phone calls and emails, to the training sessions, to the continuous improvement guidance and depth of knowledge that is implemented in our system. I can’t thank Gillian enough for her support and have no hesitation in recommending her services to anybody in the healthcare sector.

She knows this industry inside and out and has played a pivotal role in our success as an organisation”.

PARK LANE RETIREMENT VILLAGE

As facility managers we know all too well the time consuming task of writing implementing and updating policy / procedure manuals.

Back in 2013 with the opening of Park Lane looming and my “to do list” growing by the day, I remembered hearing about a lady called “Gillian Robinson” who could provide facility specific policy / procedure manuals and also support us in obtaining Ministry of Health certification.

Following my first meeting with Gillian I was very impressed by her positive and professional manner. During our meeting it soon became evident Gillian is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the Aged Care Sector and achieving quality outcomes.

I left that meeting feeling refreshed and invigorated – ready to attack my “to do list”.

Gillian not only provided facility specific and user friendly policy / procedure manuals, she also supported us during the implementation period ensuring we met Ministry of Health audit requirements.

Gillian is truly a “book of knowledge” and most importantly she is approachable and always willing to share her knowledge. For Gillian there is never a silly question.

Having Gillian’s expertise on board has been a great asset not only at management level but also for our clinical care team.

If you are looking for a healthcare consultant who is professional, supportive, knowledgeable and accessible I would highly recommend Gillian Robinson of Healthcare Compliance Solutions Ltd.

Oakwoods Lifecare

Gillian was the facilitator at a meeting I attended yesterday on policies and procedures, at an aged care facility where I am employed, and has recently changed ownership.

She was such an excellent presenter and held our attention for the entire time. The material she spoke about was all very relevant to us all, and she made it so easy to understand, not only, what it all meant, but the reasons why it was being done. She spoke on our level, which made me feel very comfortable in her presence. Not everyone accepts change easily, but the more she spoke, the more she made us really feel that we were all a team, working together, and all “on the same page”. I have been to many many courses, lectures, meetings etc of this type over the years, with many different companies and this is the first time that I have come away feeling so good, refreshed, and eager to get this “new way of doing things underway”.

She has such an approachable, friendly and professional manner, and I am very much looking forward to working alongside her over the next 2 years that she has been contracted to our facility for.

Thank you Gillian for what you did for us yesterday. You were amazing!!

Westland Residential Care Facility

Gillian came on site in June 2002 in a Temporary Manager role to support the owner of the facility with change that was needed. She was able to install facility specific policy and procedures manuals to meet Ministry of Health audit requirements. When Certification was required her support ensured we were the first facility to be Certified against the newly legislated Standards on the West Coast. I took over as Facility Manager in 2005 and have been grateful to have had Gillian continuing to upgrade the policies on an annual basis ever since.

She’s also provided training as we’ve required it and is a very good presenter. She always attracts high attendance as Gillian has a high level of knowledge in Aged Care. It’s reassuring to know that she’s there when I need her and can contact her at any time with any query. I would recommend their services relating to education or improving audit outcomes including addressing those difficult issues that come up from time to time.
