Morrison says he did not cut $1.2 billion from aged care sector in 1996. But he did. Industry said at the time the cuts would reduce standards of care. Morrison was not moved & proceeded with cuts. The only lie is his own.

I'd suggest the abomination going on within the sector is yet another example of the failure of privatisation ideology. Should caring for our senior citizens really be a for-profit venture? Really?

has wreaked unbelievable damage to the sector over the last 5 years. Most of the aged victims' issues can be traced directly back to HIS budget cuts. He has effectively just announced a royal commission into his own incompetence.

While the current crisis clearly warrants a Royal Commission, it will do nothing to fix the crisis unless the Government introduces mandated staffing ratios in residential nursing homes as a matter of urgency.

On 20/8 I introduced my bill for staffing transparency in - since then I've received heartbreaking letters from residents, relatives & staff. Reform is badly needed, there are changes we can make now while the long overdue is underway.

An Enrolled and Registered Nurse in charge of 72 residents. 6 mins only per resident for carers to get them showered, toileted, dressed and ready in the morning. How is that "adequate" staffing?

Why did you just cut $1.2b from aged care then? You actively want to make things worse or your new stance is mere pretence & political expediency?

Another Royal Commission this time How about they have an authority, funded and legislated that ensured all services have to report anything and everything that happens in there from food, social, physical, emotional & quality of workers, including nursing.

I'm 35 minutes into the story. The tears I'm shedding are sheer anger and without seeing the rest of the program Sean Rooney is the epitome of absolutely everything that is wrong in aged care The guy is an absolute disgrace and nothing but combative

"Australian nursing homes have no minimum legal ratio of staff to residents, no minimum training requirement and no statutory requirement to have a nurse on duty at all times. The only legal requirement is the unenforceable rule that staff numbers are "adequate".

Funding, yes; staff ratios, yes; more or better regulation, possibly. But what needs to change fundamentally is our entrenched attitudes as a society to & older people
