Based upon how it worked when he took Malcolm to a vote, he should last about 10 minutes more.

Seems like the right time to say this. To all (inc pharmacists) working in Aged Care, remember: The standard you walk past is the standard you accept. Like many I have seen things in nursing homes that in hindsight I should have called out, and I’m sorry. A lesson for our future.

Let’s not whine about the RC, or grandstand about how it came to be. Instead let it be a vehicle for meaningful change. Shine bright light into various dark corners and embrace the changes that will be needed. It starts here, and not a moment too soon.

Family bible? No offense but really? What would have happened if she’d produced a family Koran?

Whilst I would certainly like to see it improve on the whole (refer motivation prefacing previous contribution) I’d respectfully submit that the standard is better than is being portrayed. And certainly vastly superior to that which exists in many places.

The coach was signaling to people in the stands. So bored was he that he struck up conversations in sign language to maintain some amusement in an otherwise unexciting period of a grand slam final. Or not.

11/11 - That’s a 10 point plan. Not rocket science, but common sense not based on vested interests, commercialism or inter professional politics and power-mongering.

10/10 Properly fund research into best models of care. Do not always distribute these funds through tertiary education research centres or professional organizations such as GP/medical groups or nursing/Pharmacy bodies. Fund the best, not only those with effective lobbying arms

9/9 Fund the establishment of a wider network of public aged care facilities for those older people who need care but can’t access it in the private sector at the level required.

7/7 Establish random covert observation processes to detect and penalize unsafe/unethical/criminal behavior in aged care. Hidden cameras etc

5/5 Establish a “red list” of medications and practices that must be periodically reviewed in aged care - do so under guidance of an appropriately qualified expert multi-D panel of independent experts

3/3 At a Federal level, mandate minimum annual training & education , including maintenance of records. Mandate preservation of demonstrable competencies at minimum acceptable levels got key functions such as medication administration.

2/2 - First mandate staffing levels, including RN:resident ratios with Federal legislation. The industry has not been able to manage this successfully. Include functions that RNs must perform, lessen the extent of delegation to less qualified and non-qualified staff

A thread in response: Australian Aged Care is good, but with sensible intervention at a Federal level could be so much better/safer. A range of relatively simple measures could make a world of difference 1/1

Very pleased to hear that your experience of this country (ours - yours & mine) has been a positive one. Not everyone experiences it this way. There’s not any room here for racial, religious or any other intolerance. I’m happy to see someone call it out where it does exist.
