aged care placement | the better way
Posted: 2nd July 2019
The NSW Opposition is calling for urgent intervention at a regional aged care home described as a "hellhole", after the facility had its accreditation revoked.
The Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission's decision to revoke Bupa Eden's accreditation followed management's failure to make adequate changes after sanctions were imposed in December.
The decision means taht Bupa Eden will no longer be eligible for any Commonwealth funding and will have to reapply to become an accredited provider after August 16.
NSW Labor spokeswoman for Ageing Sophie Cotsis said both levels of government needed to urgently act to ensure the safety of the 53 residents in the state's southern-most town.
"At a time when there is a Royal Commission into Aged Care, how could an aged care facility let its standards drop, or not even meet [standards] like palliative care, hydration, and occupational health and safety?" Sophie Cotsis.
