Aged Care Information   

This facility is owned by Mitchell Court (Tauranga) Limited.

The Mitchell Court Rest Home located in Matua, Tauranga, was a finalist in the Aged Advisor 2015 'Peoples Choice' Awards. It's website states that Mitchell Court is: "A small, family-orientated rest home offering semi-secure living for up to 35 residents. We are set off the road in a quiet urban setting, close to beaches, walkways and Cherrywood shopping centre. It is approximately a 7 minute drive to the centre of Tauranga city."

Mitchell Court is also: "Focused on providing each resident with a safe and caring living environment, and are available 24/7 to ensure continuous nursing support, and all our permanent care assistants receive training in elderly care. When you first join the Mitchell Court community, we talk to you, your family and your medical advisors about your life and all your needs so we can develop a full nursing care plan and daily activities sheet."

The website goes on to say that "All rooms are furnished with comfortable beds, wardrobes and heating, and are directly linked to the nurse-call system. You are also most welcome to bring your personal belongings and favourite furnishings. There are two dining rooms and lounge areas, small seating areas, along with a garden courtyard where residents can spend time with friends and family. Room options include full or shared en-suite, or washing facilities. All meals and baking is cooked fresh on site, and we are able to cater for a variety of diets. Our chef sources all ingredients from local suppliers where possible."

Why we have Rest Home Audits

All rest homes and aged residential care facilities are certified and audited to ensure they:

  • provide safe, appropriate care for their residents
  • meet the standards set out in the Health and Disability Services (Safety) Act 2001.

Types of audit and when they happen

Certification / Surveillance Audits
Certification audits happen every 1–4 years. After the audit, rest homes are certified for a set period of time (the exact length depends on how well the rest home performed at the certification audit). Once this time is up, the rest home must be re-audited and its certification renewed.

An unannounced spot audit (also called a surveillance audit) happens around the middle of a rest home’s certification period. The spot audit ensures progress has been made on outstanding areas identified in the earlier certification audit and that standards haven’t slipped.

In addition to audits, rest homes have to report to their DHB on how they are addressing issues found at audit. These improvements are then verified at the next audit event.

Other types of audit

Provisional audits happen when a provider purchases a certified rest home from another provider.

Partial provisional audits happen when a provider wants to add services to their certificate (eg, a rest home adding hospital-level care), when a new rest home is built, or when a provider adds capacity or reconfigures their services (eg, builds a new wing, upgrades rooms). Before 2014, audits for adding capacity or reconfiguring services were referred to as verification audits.

Ministry inspections

Rest homes may have unannounced inspections by the Ministry under the Health and Disability Services (Safety) Act 2001 in the event of a serious complaint.

DHB issues-based audits

DHBs can conduct issues-based audits under the Aged Related Residential Care Contract. For information on these audits please contact the relevant DHB.
