The Health Law and Ageing Research Unit, Monash University have developed this tool to assist RACS in the implementation of the recommendations arising from adverse events resulting in death or serious injury. The register covers the topics from our recent review with the 104 recommendations for Choking, Medications, Physical Restraint, Respite, Resident-on-Resident Aggression, Suicide and Unexplained Absences.


We thank Marrianne Beatty and Jane Boag for their contributions in developing this tool.

The findings of our research, and the resultant recommendations are listed under seven (7) main headings, which can be located as ‘tabs’ on the bottom of the screen. These tabs contain all the recommendations from the enquiry in relation to that heading on the page or “tab”
