Statement from Regis Healthcare re gastroenteritis at Regis Yeronga, Brisbane
Regis Aged Care confirms that its facility at Yeronga is currently experiencing an episode of gastroenteritis on site. There has been gastroenteritis at the facility since the 28th July, during which time our protocols have been in place.
Regis immediately informed the Public Health Unit of this episode as part of its established protocols for managing this type of issue. Regis is continuing to work very closely with the Public Health Unit and is managing access to the site in accordance with standard procedures.
During the period of the gastro, there have been 2 deaths at the facility. Whilst one resident was affected by gastro and the other may have been, in neither case did the Doctor report Gastro as being the cause of death.
Our immediate priority is for the safety and wellbeing of our residents, residents’ families, our staff on-site and the community.
We have implemented our infection control processes and are continuing to do everything we can to safeguard our residents at the site.
