Why did this not raise alarm bells and why didn’t the Morrison Government do more to prevent it in Victoria? We have seen the tragic consequences of staff being lost in nursing homes including at the St Basil’s nursing home. The Morrison Government should have done better.
The Department of Health yesterday revealed just 100,000 aged care workers have completed the Morrison Government’s training modules in infection control - less than one in three workers. Why did this completely inadequate take-up not raise serious alarm bells? https://t.co/CMJLgpy0f0
The Morrison Government was handed the recommendations on developing a protocol in case vulnerable aged care residents were left without care almost a year ago which could have avoided what has happened in Victoria - they’ve ignored it. https://t.co/JxsepbiyEs
This is shocking and disappointing. Labor has been saying for years that there aren’t enough aged care workers and they aren’t paid enough. I have called on the Government repeatedly to progress this report. The Morrison Government must come clean on why it haven’t.
Shocking - on Monday Scott Morrison gave an assurance the Federal Government had trained the aged care workforce to prepare for COVID-19. But now it turns out just one in five aged care workers had done the training. These workers must get the appropriate training. https://t.co/sBc7vz7n6B
What a terrible attitude from the Libs. The upgrade of a dangerous intersection shouldn’t be decided on a ‘love-it or lose-it’ basis. If funding is the issue then perhaps the Federal Liberals could follow the commitment Labor made at the last election and stump up $12m. #politas https://t.co/SG2JLLhz7p
We know the incredible work aged care workers are doing across the country dealing with COVID-19 and this payment was meant to be recognition of this effort. This is all the more disappointing when you consider how little aged care workers are paid for the work they do. /4
