As part of ta national strategy to minimise COVID-19 transmission in Australia, all international passengers arriving into Australia via air or maritime ports are required to undertake mandatory quarantine in a designated hotel room for 14 days.
The Hotel Support Service (HSS) has been developed to help support the clinical leadership and operational workforce to provide safe clinical, infection prevention and wellness care to all passengers in mandatory quarantine.
The Hotel Support Service CATT Response will receive referrals via Alfred Triage for an advanced assessment response for guests in hotel quarantine. You will work with and supervise the RPN3/SW2/OT2 clinician on shift and report to the Alfred Mental Health Quarantine Hotel Team Leader/Psychiatry CATT Manager for clinical issues. Clinicians working in the CATT response will be responsible for conducting expert mental health assessments for passengers with mental health or alcohol and other drug issues in mandatory quarantine that cannot be managed safely by the mental health clinician on site alone.
