Trial by media – are you Royal Commission ready?

Arm your business with intel

‘It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it’– Benjamin Franklin

Since its announcement in October, the media has covered – and created – a significant amount of dialogue surrounding the string of scandals set to be uncovered in the upcoming Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.

Whether it’s the September 2018 Four Corners report nationally scrutinising the stories of those that were victim to improper aged care and health care standards, the coverage on court rulings and prosecutions against carers who have harmed the safety of patients, or the September 2017 article published by the Sydney Morning Herald comparing the reputation of aged care facilities to the human right violating character of Guantanamo Bay, the media has successfully invited fear and distrust in the quality of care aged care services provided across Australia. 

Investigations for the Royal Commission are targeted at the entire aged care sector – no aged care facility or governing organisation can be certain how this will affect their reputation, staff, operations or functioning. Being prepared and informed of what media is generated is imperative to stay proactive and primed for how the business could be affected. 

So how do you decide if your aged care facility needs to manage your reputation? You need to ask yourself:

Do the Royal Commission’s Terms of Reference cover aspects or issues relevant to my organisation?

• Management systems
• Staffing
• Organisational development
• Instances of abuse, reportable assaults, neglect
• Failures of care
• Theft of belongings
• Hygiene 
• Quality of food
• Sanitary conditions
• Restrictions on freedom and movement

Do we want to manage these topics or issues through any of the following?

• Campaign tracking
• Crisis management
• Identifying influencers
• Measuring and analysing success
• Media monitoring
• Reputation management
• Risk management
• Straightforward reporting
