COVID-19 FOOD & NUTRITION

EMERGENCY RESPONSE PACKAGE

FOR AGED CARE HOMES AND RETIREMENT VILLAGES

Does your food service have a plan for an emergency situation where all staff are ordered home? COVID-19 has forced us to take stock of our emergency plans.

How will you feed your consumers if there is no-one to cook, no-one to serve and no-one with the know-how to provide the correct meals to the correct person? 

The Rapid Food & Nutrition Services team can support your organisation to ensure you have a robust food and nutrition plan in place to deal with any emergency including  COVID-19 crisis. Having a RAPID plan in place will ensure all processes relating to food services and the consumers' nutritional requirements will be maintained even during the event of an Emergency.

COMPLEMENTARY EMERGENCY ASSESSMENT

It is imperative that every aged care home has a robust food and nutrition plan in place to deal with a COVID-19 crisis.

We have prepared a short checklist to assist you in self-auditing your organisation's preparedness. 

If you answer 'no' to any of the key action items, then it is likely you may need help in preparing an adequate emergency plan.

EMERGENCY PLAN

In the event you have a confirmed case of COVID-19 within your home (staff or resident) you will likely find yourself without food services staff. This can happen in other outbreaks such as gastroenteritis. It is important to be prepared!

The The Rapid  Food and Nutrition Service team will evaluate your Food service and  provide a Gap Analysis to plan and prepare on all key areas ensuring a safe delivery of Food and Nutrition in an emergency. We will assist you to identify Covid Food Service Champions within your organisation, providing support and up skilling techniques if required.
