|Nursing home manager sacked over squalor
Torres Strait Regional Mayor Fred Gela said the manager in charge of the Star of the Sea Nursing Home on Thursday Island had been sacked after a former nurse complained of the conditions at the facility.
"The person that was responsible for the overall administration and overseeing all of that,[url=http://giuseppezanottioutlets.webmium.com/][b]2013 Giuseppe Zanotti shoes outlet sale[/b][/url], their employment has been terminated as of Monday,[url=http://rogervivieroutlets.webmium.com/][b]Discount Roger Vivier Shoes[/b][/url]," he said.
The federal Department of Health and Ageing announced today it was investigating claims made by nurse Jeremy Clark,[url=http://rogervivieroutlets.webmium.com/][b]roger vivier discount for Discount Roger Vivier Shoes Roger Vivier Flats Roger Vivier Sale[/b][/url], who was sent to the facility by a nursing agency last month to fill a vacancy.
Mr Clark claimed the 20-bed nursing home was unsafe,[url=http://duveticaukoutlet.halod.com/][b]Duvetica Jackets UK[/b][/url], understaffed and unhygienic.
"The moment I stepped through the door I was assaulted by the filth - it was shocking,[url=http://duveticaukoutlet.halod.com/][b]Duvetica Down Jackets For Men[/b][/url]," Mr Clarke told ABC Radio.
"Foodstuffs lying (on) the ground everywhere,[url=http://giuseppezanottioutlets.webmium.com/][b]Giuseppe Zanotti shoes outlet sale[/b][/url], mess everywhere you looked, pads lying on the floor which had been left there a while,[url=http://parajumpersoutletitalia.albirank.net/][b]parajumpers outlet italia parajumpers Parka Piumini online shop abbigliamento[/b][/url], which is unhygienic,[url=http://woolrichdeutschland.gengfl.com/][b]http://woolrichdeutschland.gengfl.com/[/b][/url]," he said.
He said patients were not being properly cared for,[url=http://billigamonclerjackasverige.albirank.net/][b]http://billigamonclerjackasverige.albirank.net/[/b][/url]; diabetic patients were not being given the right food and many were left dehydrating in their beds,[url=http://parajumpersonline.webmium.com/][b]Kodiak Jackets Online PARAJUMPERS[/b][/url].
"They are just not getting water because their water jugs weren't filled up," he said.
"They were grasping onto my hand and guzzling down the water and after the fourth cup I realised we have got a serious problem,[url=http://woolrichjacket.webmium.com/][b]http://woolrichjacket.webmium.com/[/b][/url]," he said.
Torres Strait Regional Council Mayor Fred Gela said the president of the nursing home's board of directors Romina Fuji had admitted there were problems with how the nursing home was run but believed the trouble-plagued history was improving,[url=http://rogervivieroutlets.webmium.com/][b]Roger Vivier Flats Roger Vivier Sale[/b][/url].
"She's also indicated to me that she strongly believes that not all of what is actually being said is true," he said.
The non-for-profit nursing home has a history of financial problems and in 2007 was given $1,[url=http://duveticamen.blogspot.com/][b]duvetica men[/b][/url].2 million in emergency funding by the federal government,[url=http://woolrichdeutschland.gengfl.com/][b]Woolrich Deutschland Woolrich Arctic Jacket Online Shop Damen and Herren outlet deutschland[/b][/url].
In June this year the Department of Ageing put the nursing home on a timetable for improvement after an audit found it did not comply with four key accreditation standards,[url=http://duveticaukoutlet.halod.com/][b]Duvetica Down Jackets For Men Store[/b][/url].相关的主题文章：
