Infectious Disease Outbreak Within A Centre

Post by loulou2042 » Mon May 15, 2017 10:40 am

question what is the approved service required to do if there is an infectious disease outbreak? it says to read nation regulations.

all I can I find is

[/b] 88 Infectious diseases
(1) If there is an occurrence of an infectious disease at an education and care service, the approved provider of the service must ensure that reasonable steps are taken to prevent the spread of the infectious disease at the service.
Penalty: $2000.

(2) If there is an occurrence of an infectious disease at a centre-based service, the approved provider of the service must ensure that a parent or an authorised emergency contact of each child being educated and cared for by the service is notified of the occurrence as soon as practicable.
Penalty: $2000.

(3) If there is an occurrence of an infectious disease at a family day care residence or approved family day care venue, the approved provider of the family day care service must ensure that a parent or an authorised emergency contact of each child being educated and cared for at the residence or venue as part of the service is notified of the occurrence as soon as practicable.

Penalty: $2000.

is that all I should put

please any help?
In taking steps to control the spread of infectious diseases:
5. Service procedures are followed, in relation to notifying families of illness or injuries that affect children while in education and care.
Yes or No

Interview an educator or your supervisor in the service who has had experience with notifying parents/primary caregiver/family of an illness or injury that affects one of the children while attending education and care at the centre.
Describe the step-by-step procedure the educator/supervisor implemented.


Obtain a copy of the centre’s procedure in notifying families of illness or injuries that affect children while in education and care. Did the educator/supervisor follow the centre’s procedure? Was there some discrepancy (specify the discrepancy)?


Submit a copy of the centre’s procedure for your assessor to review.

This needs to be done during work placement...
