PEOPLE BEFORE PROFITS. This includes staff and residents. Care workers are run off their feet, they have no time to provide QUALITY of care for residents, therefor everyone suffers. Care work should be a most satisfying and rewarding job and it could be if staff were given the time to provide the rewarding care that residents and staff deserve

I would like to be informed if any of the Aged Care Commission findings are to be used in a publication. I do have the conclusive findings by the Aged Care Commissioner.

Most Aged Care Places In Victoria are run by greedy Owners that do not care for the care needs of their Residents at all. The Aged Care workers (Not the Registered Nurses) are treated poorly, bullied by Facility Managers and Registered Nurses. Most of it takes place at (names removed). Their bullying policies are of no use!
