Nursing in Residential Aged Care Homes

In our aged care homes, clinical nurses work with registered and enrolled nurses, as well as personal carers, to oversee your health. When you move into one of our aged care residences, you will complete an assessment and planning session to determine your nursing care. Our nurses are then in charge of six-monthly health reviews to make sure you receive the health support you need.

Hospital in the Home

Hospital in the Home (HITH) is a Queensland Government program that provides short-term acute care in the home for people who would otherwise need to be in hospital. 
As part of the HITH program, BlueCare can nurse patients with medical conditions that are safe and appropriate for home treatment, working alongside your hospital medical team to develop a personalised care plan. Eligibility will depend on your treatment requirements.
Among the conditions suited to Hospital in the Home are:

  • Skin inflammations or infections
  • Blood clot
  • Pneumonia or other chest infections
  • Kidney or urinary tract infections
  • Mastitis
  • Diverticulitis or appendicitis

BlueCare provides Hospital in the Home services are available from Mackay Base Hospital, and we hope to expand the service to other hospitals.
