Whistleblowers should be financially rewarded, parliamentary inquiry recommends by Peter Ryan ABC News 13 September 2017

WHAT A PLEASANT CHANGE IT WOULD BE TO SEE GENUINE PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWERS TREATED WITH RESPECT AND DIGNITY RATHER THAN THEIR USUAL TREATMENT OF CONTEMPT AND VILIFICATION.

WHAT A PLEASANT CHANGE IT WOULD BE TO SEE THEM THANKED RATHER THAN OSTRACIZED AND SHUNNED.

WHAT A PLEASANT CHANGE IT WOULD BE TO SEE THEM REINSTATED IN THE JOBS THEY OBVIOUSLY LOVED RATHER THAN THREATENED AND SACKED.

THIS WRITER STILL HAS THE HOPE THAT ONE DAY THIS WILL BE OUTCOME FOR THE GENUINE PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWER WHO HAD THE COURAGE AND FORTITUDE TO SPEAK OUT WHEN WITNESSING WRONGDOING.

Whistleblowers should get compo parliamentary inquiry finds by Adele Ferguson - The Canberra Times - September 13 2017

MP calls for whistleblower protection by Ed Jackson - The Sydney Morning Herald.

SING ALSO WOULD LIKE THE GENERAL PUBLIC TO REMEMBER JUST A FEW OTHER PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWERS VILIFIED  BY FEDERAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS OF THIS COUNTRY WHEN THEY DISCLOSED WRONGDOING.
ALL EMPLOYEES JUST GOING ABOUT THEIR JOBS AND FULFILLING THEIR OBLIGATION TO THE PUBLIC AND ALL PAYING A TERRIBLE PRICE WHEN THEY SPOKE OUT.

HIDDEN CAMERA CAPTURES ABUSE APPARENT SUFFOCATION ATTEMPT OF ELDERLY MAN IN ADELAIDE NURSING HOME. THE ADVERTISER BY BRAD CROUCH JULY 26 2016

SING'S ADVICE WAS TO USE CCTV MANY YEARS AGO.
NO ONE  LISTENED THEN AND NO ONE WILL LISTEN NOW.
SUCH A SIMPLE ANSWER TO SUCH A COMPLEX PROBLEM.
ONE HAS TO WONDER WHY THE USE OF CCTV IS NOT USED IN ALL NURSING HOMES. PERHAPS THIS ANSWER IS TOO SIMPLE.
THIS IS THE ONE INEXPENSIVE ACTION THAT WILL MINIMISE ELDER ABUSE.
MANY DECENT STAFF ARE WELL AWARE THAT 'BLOWING THE WHISTLE' ON AN ABUSIVE COLLEAGUE, COULD LEAD TO THE TERMINATION OF THEIR OWN EMPLOYMENT.
SING HAS STATED MANY TIMES ON THIS WEBSITE: UNTIL THIS GENUINE FEAR OF REPRISAL IS ELIMINATED, ABUSE OF OUR ELDERLY AND VULNERABLE CITIZENS WILL CONTINUE.
SING ASKS: IF THIS TYPE OF HORRIFIC ABUSE OF THE VULNERABLE ELDERLY IS NOT IN THE 'PUBLIC INTEREST' - WHAT IS?

SING ASKS THE GENERAL PUBLIC: WHAT SORT OF JUSTICE IS THIS FOR GEORGE HADGKISS?

SING ASKS: WHAT SORT OF A JOKE IS THIS FOR A DECEASED, FORMER, ELDERLY RESIDENT OF EVENTIDE NURSING HOME BRIGHTON/SANDGATE, BRISBANE WHO HAD HIS JAW BROKEN AND NEVER RECOVERED?

SING ASKS: GEORGE DIED NOVEMBER 2005; WAS ASSAULTED IN AUGUST 2004. WHY HAS IT TAKEN SO LONG FOR THIS MATTER TO COME TO COURT?

SING ASKS: HAS DAVID HUGHES-FISCHER BEEN WORKING IN AGED CARE FACILITIES SINCE GEORGE'S ASSAULT?

SING ASKS: WHY HAS DAVID HUGHES-FISCHER BEEN TREATED BETTER THAN A PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWER? HAD HE BEEN A WHISTLEBLOWER (NOT A PERSON WHO INFLICTED SERIOUS INJURY ON AN ELDERLY RESIDENT) HE WOULD HAVE HAD HIS EMPLOYMENT TERMINATED. WE ALL KNOW THAT PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWERS ARE TREATED MUCH WORSE THAN CRIMINALS BY QUEENSLAND HEALTH.

SING IS INFORMED THAT LEAKED COPIES OF PROGRESS NOTES AND A COPY OF THIS COMPELLING DVD BELOW WERE PASSED ON TO THE RELEVANT AUTHORITIES, BUT STILL THE CASE WAS DROPPED. GEORGE HADGKISS NEVER RECEIVED JUSTICE.

EVIDENCE IS ALSO AVAILABLE TO SING THAT THE LAST DAYS OF GEORGE'S LIFE AT EVENTIDE LEFT A LOT TO BE DESIRED. EVIDENCE IS AVAILABLE THAT EVENTS TOOK PLACE THAT WERE SO DISTURBING THAT A STAFF MEMBER REPORTED THIS SERIOUS MATTER TO THE NURSING UNIT MANAGER.

George's compelling statement was captured on DVD - not long after his assault. This DVD clearly shows George's fractured jaw. This DVD was presented to the relevant authorities. George died late November 2005. George was a life member of the Australian Labor Party.
On 2 June 2008 the Office of the Director for Public Prosecutions instructed that the 'Crown was discontinuing the prosecution based on the view that the Crown did not have any reasonable prospects of securing a successful conviction in this matter. The case was discontinued in the Brisbane Magistrate's Court on 4 June 2008'.

WHAT HAS SING'S PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWER KAREN MAREE SMITH LEARNED SINCE HER EMPLOYMENT WAS TERMINATED BY QUEENSLAND HEALTH 5 YEARS AGO?

Karen Maree Smith's employment was terminated by Queensland Health 5 years ago for reporting the abuse and neglect of elderly residents at Eventide Nursing Home Brighton/Sandgate. This facility is now renamed Brighton Health Campus.
What has she learned since blowing the whistle?

NO GOOD DEED GOES UNPUNISHED

NOTHING HAS CHANGED IN AGED CARE REGARDLESS OF STATE OR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT PROMISES

EXPECT TO LOSE YOUR JOB IF YOU SPEAK OUT

IF YOU VALUE SLEEPING WITH A CLEAR CONSCIENCE - SPEAK OUT NO MATTER WHAT THE COST

SING ASKS ONCE AGAIN - WHAT ELSE IS NEW IN AGED CARE?

http://www.theage.com.au/national/care-crusade-20130824-2sijs.html
Care crusade.
Many who have been let down in the aged care system are being further frustrated by the official channels of complaint. The Age.

Mistreated nursing home residents 'better off in a concentration camp' - ABC News.


SING ASKS: WHAT ELSE IS NEW IN AGED CARE?
To read what happens to those who speak out about abuse, assault and wrongdoing, just read this website. This author first reported nursing home abuse in 2000. Nothing was done; nothing has changed. Have a look at the old stories below and consider what the future holds for those citizens who expect decent treatment in their elderly years. Unless aged care is taken seriously by those in positions of power, the future looks very ugly indeed.


SING ASKS THE GENERAL PUBLIC:
Australian Public Interest Whistleblowers are treated like criminals when they report abuse, neglect and wrongdoing, why would any thinking person expect aged care to improve?


SING ASKS THOSE IN POSITIONS OF POWER:

Why do you treat those speaking out like criminals?

Why would you expect fearful staff to report wrongdoing when they have clearly seen what happens to those who speak out?

Why are you surprised that abusers are flourishing in nursing homes when abusers know that they will have no action taken against them?

Why are you surprised that decent, credible staff are afraid to report abuse, neglect and wrongdoing?

Why do you blame lack of staff or lack of education for the mistreatment of the elderly? Roger Dean murdered 11 patients and harmed many others. He will spend the rest of his life in prison. He was an educated registered nurse and in a position of authority when he committed his atrocious crime. No mention has been made of staffing levels or lack or education - only his addiction and theft of residents' drugs. Please stop blaming lack of education and staffing levels for abuse and assault of the elderly. Lack of staff and education can certainly lead to neglect, accidents and incidents, - but abuse and assault - PLEASE. Abuse and assault are deliberate, intentional acts and cannot and should not be condoned or excused.

Why is so much taxpayers' money spent on cover-up?



Wake Up Australia - let's get serious. The stories below are nothing new in aged care atrocities.

NICK DAPONTES STORY TOLD TO SING BY NICK'S DISTRAUGHT DAUGHTER, ALEXIS DAPONTES












Saturday, July 13, 2013

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO MR. FRANZ HANKER, FORMERLY A RESIDENT IN QUEENSLAND HEALTH'S 'PARKLANDS RESIDENTIAL AGED CARE FACILITY' TOWNSVILLE?





A DAUGHTER PLEADS: SPEAK UP AND SPEAK OUT. STOP TURNING A BLIND EYE.

Just click on documents to view.

SING HAS TAKEN THE LIBERTY OF POSTING, IN FULL, THIS LETTER BELOW FROM FRANK'S DISTRESSED DAUGHTER.

TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC: THESE STORIES ARE NOT UNCOMMON TO THIS WRITER. SING RECEIVES MANY SUCH NARRATIVES FROM OTHER DISTRESSED FAMILY MEMBERS AND STAFF, WHO HAVE EXHAUSTED ALL RECOMMENDED AVENUES.

TO THE PREMIER ANNA BLIGH, THE MINISTER FOR HEALTH PAUL LUCAS AND THE PRIME MINISTER JULIA GILLARD:
TIME TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THESE STORIES ARE BECOMING MORE FREQUENT AND ARE NOT THE FIGMENT OF OTHERS' IMAGINATIONS. THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING IN OUR AGED CARE SYSTEM AND IS BECOMING WORSE. TO QUOTE THE AUTHOR OF THIS HEART FELT LETTER - MY FATHER MAY HAVE BEEN ELDERLY - BUT THAT DID NOT MAKE HIM ANY LESS OF A HUMAN BEING THAN YOU OR I.
TO ANOTHER HEART FELT QUOTE BY MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. AND SING'S MOTTO:
OUR LIVES BEGIN TO END THE DAY WE BECOME SILENT ABOUT THINGS THAT MATTER.

PREMIER BLIGH, MINISTER LUCAS AND PRIME MINISTER GILLARD:
SING'S SUPPORTERS HAVE NOT AND WILL NOT REMAIN SILENT WHILE THIS ABUSE/ASSAULT OF OUR ELDERLY AND DISABLED CITIZENS CONTINUES.

SING'S QUEENSLAND HEALTH PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWERS WILL NOT REMAIN SILENT ABOUT THESE MATTERS - UNTIL THEIR PLIGHT IS HEARD.









Also see article on right of SING's website:(1a) Bupa care home staff tormented dementia victims and recorded their 'despicable' acts on their mobile phones.
Please see a chronology of abuse/assault at EVENTIDE NURSING HOME, BRIGHTON/SANDGATE, BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND on posts below, beginning 7th November 2010.

Friday, July 12, 2013

Premier Bligh and Minister Lucas: Please do not tell Queensland Health staff they are safe from reprisal when they make a Public Interest Disclosure!

FURTHER EVIDENCE IS AVAILABLE THAT THE DISTRICT MANAGER, TAKING CARRIAGE OF THIS CASE, WAS INFORMED BY A FAMILY MEMBER IN SEPTEMBER 2004, THAT HER MOTHER WAS BEING ABUSED BY THESE TWO STAFF MEMBERS. DOCUMENTED EVIDENCE AVAILABLE.
To view any of SING's documents just click on the document and it will enlarge.
Eventide management and Queensland Health denied that any abuse took place. The Queensland Police Service report below, clearly disputes those denials.


Queensland Health's Audit Operational Review Unit stuff's up from the beginning. The Minister involved in this case and other serious abuse/assault cases at Eventide, Brighton is now serving a sentence in prison for corruption. See articles below.

Missing words: Karen Smith caused the resident to be:
This clearly delusional, defamatory letter was written by the registered nurse to the newspaper reporter. The reporter thought the Whistleblower had a right to have a copy. This registered nurse and the abusive advanced assistant in nursing remained in the mental health unit for two more months on night duty together. This registered nurse was responsible for the distribution of medication to mentally ill and frail elderly and disabled patients. She was also in a position of power over subordinate staff. It was the Public Interest Whistleblower who was removed from the unit by Eventide management and Queensland Health's District Manager.


Please read paragraph 4 very carefully. This registered nurse was allowed to remain in charge of a mental health unit , working night shifts, for a further two months after the Public Interest Disclosure to the Crime and Misconduct Commission. This was permitted with the full knowledge of Eventide management and Queensland Health. It was the Whistleblower who was removed from the unit - not the abusers. Tell the truth Minister: Reprisal is a real possibility for those who speak out without proper support.
To Whistleblowers and staff speaking out: If you keep delaying, you give bureaucrats plenty of time to re - write history. If you keep delaying, you give them time to gather enough false evidence to discredit you. If you keep delaying, you give them enough time to wear you down so you will resign due to distress. Other Whistleblowers' stories to follow.




THIS POST ABOVE WAS WRITTEN ON THE 30 AUGUST 2009. IT HAS COME TO SING'S ATTENTION RECENTLY THAT NEW EVIDENCE IS AVAILABLE PROVING THAT THE SACKED PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWER HAS BEEN VALIDATED IN HER REPORTING OF THE DESPICABLE CONDUCT OF THE REGISTERED NURSE AND THE ADVANCED ASSISTANT IN NURSING IN THIS SERIOUS MATTER. PLEASE NOTE THE LINK (1n) ON THE RIGHT: DARINA MASLAUSKAS V QUEENSLAND NURSING COUNCIL AND IN PARTICULAR CLAUSE 43 OF THIS REPORT.


SHAME - PREMIER AND MINISTER LUCAS - SHAME.

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT EVENTIDE MANAGEMENT AND QUEENSLAND HEALTH CONTINUED TO TARGET THE WHISTLEBLOWER AFTER IT WAS KNOWN THAT THIS REGISTERED NURSE WAS INDEED MENTALLY ILL?

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT EVENTIDE MANAGEMENT AND QUEENSLAND HEALTH CONTINUED TO MOVE THIS REGISTERED NURSE FROM PLACE TO PLACE LIKE A PAEDOPHILE PRIEST - RATHER THAN DEAL WITH HER MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES?

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWER'S EVIDENCE WAS MISREPORTED FROM THE VERY BEGINNING BY QUEENSLAND HEALTH?

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT A FAMILY MEMBER REPORTED HER MOTHER'S ABUSE TO THE DISTRICT MANAGER IN SEPTEMBER 2004 AND NOTHING WAS DONE?

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE NURSING UNIT MANAGER OF FLINDER'S HOUSE MENTAL HEALTH UNIT OR THE DIRECTOR OF NURSING AT EVENTIDE, DID NOT KNOW THAT THIS REGISTERED NURSE WAS SERIOUSLY MENTALLY ILL?

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE QUEENSLAND NURSES' UNION OF EMPLOYEES REPRESENTED THE TWO ABUSIVE STAFF MEMBERS AND TRIED TO PRESSURE THE PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWER TO CHANGE HER STATEMENT?

The 4 paragraphs that the Queensland Nurses' Union of Employees wanted removed:

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT EVENTIDE MANAGEMENT CONTINUE NOT TO REPORT SERIOUS ABUSE/ASSAULT OF THE ELDERLY AND DISABLED TO THE QUEENSLAND POLICE SERVICE?

MORE QUESTIONS TO BE ASKED AND MORE COMPELLING EVIDENCE TO BE PUBLISHED SHORTLY.

VIDEO LINK OF THE 7.30 REPORT - 15 MARCH 2006 - TO BE PUBLISHED SHORTLY.

OTHER DOCUMENTS PROVING THAT REPRISAL AGAINST THE PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWER CONTINUED AFTER THE DISMISSAL BY QUEENSLAND HEALTH OF THIS REGISTERED NURSE, WILL BE PUBLISHED SHORTLY.


ADDIT:
SING has been asked in comment 6. What did Queensland Health's Human Resource Management ( HRM ) do to help? The answer is below:

A meeting was held with Eventide management, Queensland Health's HRM and the Queensland Nurses Union's organiser on the 14 May 2004. This meeting took place prior to the Public Interest Whistleblower's disclosure to the CMC. This meeting was a debacle from the beginning. Prior to this meeting the QNU organiser tried to pressure the Whistleblower to change four paragraphs of her statement. The Whistleblower refused.

During this meeting the registered nurse stated that she believed the Public Interest Whistleblower suffered from a 'transference disorder ' and suggested that the Whistleblower should be forced to undergo a psychiatric assessment. It would eventually come to pass pass that it was the registered nurse who was forced to undergo a psychiatric assessment and was subsequently suspended for 2 years.

The registered nurse and the advanced assistant in nursing were permitted to be support people for each other at this meeting. They were not interviewed separately and were both present to hear the evidence of each other. Evidence was not recorded at this meeting and the transcriptions were a disgrace. HRM allowed these anomalies in evidence gathering to take place.

The Public Interest Whistleblower was removed from the unit (read 7.30 Report on right ) by Queensland Health's District Manager.

The two abusers remained in the mental health unit for a further two months.

The registered nurse was then rotated to work in all houses at Eventide, Brighton until she was finally interviewed by Queensland Police Service ( QPS) the following year in May 2005; almost 10 months after the PID to the CMC in July 2004.

Almost immediately after this QPS interview the registered nurse was suspended and later dismissed.

This email was sent to the Public Interest Whistleblower by mistake ( it was intended for the Executive Director of Nursing, Eventide ), shortly after her Public Interest Disclosure (PID ) to the Crime and Misconduct Commission ( CMC ) in July 2004. This email below was included in the submission by the Public Interest Whistleblower to the Queensland Public Hospitals Commission of Inquiry. This submission was written at the request of the Office of the Public Advocate, so is therefore a public document. Deceit and deception from the very beginning. This case was a debacle from beginning to end. More documented evidence of the disgrace that is claimed to be a reporting system, will be posted shortly.

HOW IT ENDED.

SING SUGGESTS NOTHING HAS CHANGED IN AGED CARE. THIS ARTICLE BELOW CONFIRMS THAT UNDER MANDATORY LAWS - EVENTIDE NURSING HOME, SANDGATE (BRIGHTON), BRISBANE, A STATE GOVERNMENT QUEENSLAND HEALTH AGED CARE FACILITY - WAS NOT OBLIGATED TO REPORT SERIOUS ALLEGATIONS OF SEXUAL ABUSE TO FEDERAL AUTHORITIES.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT'S MINISTER FOR AGEING, JUSTINE ELLIOT, ALSO PROMISED PROTECTION FOR AGED CARE WORKERS REPORTING ABUSE. ANOTHER FALSE PROMISE.

SING ADVISES THE GENERAL PUBLIC:
THE PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWER IN THIS FOOTAGE WAS SACKED ON THE 25 FEBRUARY 2009 BY QUEENSLAND HEALTH. SO MUCH FOR THE PROMISE FROM MINISTER JUSTINE ELLIOT TO PROTECT AGED CARE WORKERS WHO SPEAK OUT ON BEHALF OF THE ELDERLY AND DISABLED CITIZENS IN OUR CARE.

PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWER KAREN SMITH INTERVIEWED. SING ADVISES THAT READER'S DIGEST HAS PUBLISHED A MUST SEE WHISTLEBOWING ARTICLE ENTITLED 'SPEAKING OUT' ON PAGE 100 OF JUNE'S EDITION 2102.

IN A RECENT INTERVIEW WITH THE READER'S DIGEST, KAREN SMITH RELATES HER EXPERIENCES AT EVENTIDE NURSING HOME, BRIGHTON, BRISBANE.

SING ASKS: IS THREATENING PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWERS OR THOSE WHO SPEAK OUT WITH PRISON A NEW TACITC OR IS THE THREAT COMMONLY USED BY THOSE IS POSITIONS OF POWER?

SING IS AWARE OF TONI HOFFMAN BEING THREATENED WITH PRISON;

SING IS AWARE OF  ROB MESSENGER  BEING THREATENED WITH PRISON;

SING IS AWARE OF KAREN SMITH BEING THREATENED WITH PRISON;

SING IS AWARE OF MANY WHO HAVE BEEN THREATENED WITH SUSPENSION, TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT AND MANY OTHER DIRE ACTIONS BEING COMMITTED AGAINST THEM IF THEY DARE TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST WRONGDOING;

BUT SING WAS NOT AWARE OF SUPPORT PEOPLE BEING THREATENED WITH PRISON.

SING IS AWARE OF FAMILY MEMBERS, PARTNERS, STAFF MEMBERS AND OTHERS BEING THREATENED BY THOSE IN POSITIONS OF POWER, SOMETIMES LEADING TO A QUEENSLAND POLICE INVESTIGATION,  SURVEILLANCE ORDERS OF FAMILY MEMBERS GIVEN  AND RESTRICTION TO ACCESS OF THEIR LOVED ONES;   Please see James Jenner's case 7th - last paragraph and 17 th March 2009)

SING DOES ASK - WHAT ARE THOSE IN POSITIONS OF POWER GOING TO DO WHEN THE FEAR FACTOR PERPETRATED ON DECENT, CREDIBLE WHISTLEBLOWERS  IS ELIMINATED?

WHAT ARE THOSE IN POSITIONS OF POWER GOING TO DO WHEN PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWERS AND INFORMANTS ARE NO LONGER AFRAID OF THEM?

WHAT ARE THOSE IN POSITIONS OF POWER GOING TO DO WHEN THEY ARE FLOODED WITH IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE OF WRONGDOING THAT WILL NO LONGER  FIT UNDER THE HEAPED CARPET OF COVER-UP?


WHAT WILL THOSE IN POSITIONS OF POWER DO WHEN IT IS THEIR TURN TO ENDURE A PRIVATE CONSULTANT (PAID FOR BY THE TAXPAYER)  INVESTIGATING THEM?

THREATS OF IMPRISONMENT IS A TACTIC THAT APPEARS NOT TO BE WORKING. 

EVENTUALLY THOSE STIFLED VOICES, WITH CREDIBLE EVIDENCE TO PROVIDE, WILL BE SO LOUD THAT PEOPLE IN POSITIONS OF POWER WILL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO LISTEN.

SILENCE IS NOT GOLDEN.

SING WELCOMES WHISTLEBLOWING WOMAN JO BARBER TO THE WONDERFUL GAMES PLAYED BY QUEENSLAND HEALTH, THE CMC AND OTHERS CALLED 'PASS THE PARCEL' AND 'SHOOT THE MESSENGER'.

SING WILL SHOW YOU HOW THE GAMES OF 'PASS THE PARCEL' AND 'SHOOT THE MESSENGER' ARE PLAYED. JUST LOOK AT THE CASES ON SING'S WEBSITE AND PERHAPS GO BACK TO SOME OF THE OLDER POSTS. 

'SHOOTING THE MESSENGER' IS PLAYED BY QUEENSLAND HEALTH (QH) AND OTHER ENTITIES AND HAS BECOME AN ART FORM DEVELOPED OVER MANY YEARS. PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWERS (PIW) ARE OF NO CONCERN. QH HAS UNLIMITED TAXPAYERS MONEY TO MAKE SURE THAT IF YOU STICK YOUR HEAD UP AND SPEAK OUT - YOU ARE ALMOST CERTAINLY GUARANTEED TO HAVE IT CHOPPED OFF.  IN FACT IF A PIW OR INFORMANT  BECOMES A THORN IN THEIR SIDE, THEY WILL REMOVE YOU VERY SWIFTLY. YOU MAY EVEN BE INVESTIGATED BY  PRIVATE CONSULTANCY GROUPS PAID FOR BY THE TAXPAYER. PLEASE NOTE: YOU WILL BE INVESTIGATED - NOT THE WRONGDOING.
THE MESSAGE IS LOUD AND CLEAR: IGNORE IT, DON'T REPORT IT not REPORT IT, DON'T IGNORE IT. THE PROPAGANDA ISSUED BY QUEENSLAND HEALTH TO STAFF STATES OTHERWISE, BUT WE ALL EVENTUALLY GET THE MESSAGE. OF COURSE YOU WILL BE ENCOURAGED BY THOSE IN POSITIONS OF POWER TO SPEAK OUT AND TOLD IT IS YOUR 'DUTY OF CARE' OR YOUR 'OBLIGATION' TO REPORT WRONGDOING. ONCE YOU BEGIN YOUR JOURNEY THE FUN BEGINS. YOU WILL BE LED TO BELIEVE THAT YOUR DISCLOSURES ARE BEING TREATED SERIOUSLY. MANY MONTHS, SOMETIMES YEARS, WILL GO BY AND STILL YOU WILL BELIEVE THAT YOUR MATTERS ARE BEING TAKEN SERIOUSLY. IN THE MEANTIME THE WRONGDOERS WILL REMAIN IN PLACE OR MAY EVEN BE PROMOTED, WHILST YOUR OWN HEALTH DETERIORATES.

'PASS THE PARCEL' IS ANOTHER GAME THAT THE CRIME AND MISCONDUCT COMMISSION (CMC), QH, THE ESU AND OTHER ENTITIES YOU MAY BE PASSED ONTO,  PLAY VERY WELL. 

FOR THOSE FAMILIAR WITH THIS WEBSITE THESE GAMES ARE NOT NEW. 
FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THIS WEBSITE, PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF HOW THESE GAMES, PLAYED BY THOSE IS POSITIONS OF POWER, CAN DISCREDIT, DECEIVE, DELAY AND DESTROY PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWERS OR THOSE WHO HAVE THE AUDACITY TO SPEAK OUT.

Please see: (1a) Nursing a grudge against Hoffman by Kay Dibben. The Sunday Mail on right of SING's website


WHY DOES SHE HAVE TO BE FURTHER STRESSED TO OBTAIN JUSTICE FROM QUEENSLAND HEALTH?

WHY ARE QUEENSLAND HEALTH'S CREDIBLE PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWERS TREATED LIKE 'LEPERS'?

WHY DOES QUEENSLAND HEALTH HAVE TO SYSTEMATICALLY DESTROY THE HEALTH AND CAREERS OF THOSE EXPOSING WRONGDOING?

WHY DOES TONI HOFFMAN HAVE TO ENDURE MORE OF THE SAME DESPICABLE QUEENSLAND HEALTH CULTURE THAT WAS BROUGHT TO THE PUBLIC'S ATTENTION WHEN SHE FIRST BLEW THE WHISTLE? IT IS INDEED A SICK CULTURE.

WHY ARE FRAUDSTERS, CRIMINALS AND INCOMPETENT BUREAUCRATS TREATED BETTER THAN PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWERS?

QUEENSLAND HEALTH, THE CRIME AND MISCONDUCT COMMISSION, THE QUEENSLAND POLICE SERVICE AND JOEL MOREHU - BARLOW LEARN HOW TO PLAY 'PASS THE PARCEL'.

ALL OF THESE ENTITIES BECAME SO GOOD AT PLAYING 'PASS THE PARCEL' BECAUSE THEY HAVE HAD SO LONG TO LEARN HOW TO PLAY.

JUST A QUICK GLANCE THROUGH THIS WEBSITE WILL SHOW THE AVERAGE READER HOW SIMPLE IT IS TO ALSO LEARN TO PLAY.

TO REFRESH YOUR MEMORY:

A CREDIBLE COMPLAINT IS USUALLY MADE IN THE FIRST INSTANCE TO THE APPROPRIATE, RECOMMENDED AUTHORITY

AFTER BEING FOBBED OFF FOR SOME TIME, THE INFORMANT EVENTUALLY REALISES THAT HE/SHE IS INDEED BEING FOBBED OFF AND THAT 'NO' THEY ARE NOT BEING PARANOID.

AFTER EXHAUSTING ALL OTHER AVENUES, A COMPLAINT FINALLY GOES TO THE CRIME AND MISCONDUCT COMMISSION

THE CRIME AND MISCONDUCT COMMISSION DULY RETURN THE MATTER BACK TO QUEENSLAND HEALTH'S ETHICAL STANDARDS UNIT OR IF THE MATTER IS CRIMINAL - BACK TO THE QUEENSLAND POLICE SERVICE AS WELL

THE INFORMANT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE REQUESTED PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWER STATUS, BUT IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER AS YOU WILL BE SCREWED WHICHEVER WAY YOU GO. YOU HAVE AFTER ALL 'ROCKED THE BOAT' AND REFUSED TO COVER - UP WRONGDOING. QUEENSLAND HEALTH DO NOT APPRECIATE THOSE WHISTLEBLOWERS DETERMINED TO SPEAK OUT.

FEDERAL LABOR MP CRAIG THOMSON - FORMERLY OF THE HEALTH SERVICES UNION - SHOULD BE GRATEFUL THAT HE IS NOT A PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWER.

THE GENERAL PUBLIC ALL KNOW THE FATE OF PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWERS SPEAKING OUT IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST. THEY HAVE THEIR EMPLOYMENT TERMINATED, ARE SUSPENDED, FORCED TO RESIGN UNDER DURESS AND VILIFIED BY THIS FEDERAL LABOR GOVERNMENT.

NOT SO FOR A MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT OR AN EX HEALTH SERVICES UNION HIERARCH. THEY CAN COMMIT ALL MANNER OF WRONGDOING, BUT ARE PROTECTED BY BUREAUCRATS IN POSITIONS OF POWER.

7NEWS EXCLUSIVE: AGED CARE ASSAULTS INCREASING. SING ASKS MINISTER MARK BUTLER MP - WHAT ELSE IS NEW?


MARK BUTLER MP AND JULIA GILLARD PM: SING ASKS ONCE AGAIN - WHAT ELSE IS NEW?

LYNDA SALTARELLI: AS YOU WELL KNOW, PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWERS HAVE SPOKEN OUT ABOUT SERIOUS ASSAULTS IN NURSING HOMES ONLY TO BE VILIFIED, SACKED, SUSPENDED OR OSTRACIZED FOR DOING SO.

MARK BUTLER MP: THE FULL TRUTH OF INCREASING NURSING HOME ASSAULTS WILL NEVER BE TOLD WHEN THOSE WANTING TO SPEAK OUT ARE AFRAID THEIR EMPLOYMENT WILL BE TERMINATED IF THEY DO. THEY ARE QUITE CORRECT, MINISTER - THEY WILL PAY ONE WAY OR ANOTHER IF THEY SPEAK OUT.

MARK BUTLER MP AND LYNDA SALTARELLI: HOW HAS UNDER-STAFFING EVER BEEN OR WILL EVER BE AN ACCEPTABLE EXCUSE/ REASON FOR A STAFF MEMBER ASSAULTING A NURSING HOME RESIDENT?

MARK BUTLER MP: WHY WOULD ANY THINKING CITIZEN BELIEVE THAT YOUR DEPARTMENT IS SERIOUS ABOUT AGED CARE SEXUAL ABUSE/ASSAULT/NEGLECT WHEN THEY KNOW THOSE WITH THE CREDIBLE EVIDENCE ARE NEVER INTERVIEWED OR CONTACTED? SING HAS EVIDENCE THAT MANY CREDIBLE NURSING HOME STAFF HAVE REPORTED WRONGDOING TO MANAGEMENT, ONLY TO BE FOBBED OFF, RIDICULED OR VICTIMISED. CREDIBLE STAFF KNOW REPRISAL BY MANAGEMENT IS ALIVE AND WELL AGAINST ANY STAFF MEMBER WHO DARES TO SPEAK OUT. PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWERS ARE VILIFIED - ABUSERS FLOURISH.

SING HAS DOCUMENTED EMAIL EVIDENCE THAT ONE PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWER HAD HER EMPLOYMENT JEOPARDISED BY SENIOR MANAGEMENT AFTER SHE REPORTED ABUSE AT EVENTIDE NURSING HOME SANDGATE/BRIGHTON, BRISBANE - A QUEENSLAND HEALTH FACILITY.

BUT YOU KNOW THIS IS CORRECT MINISTER. OPEN UP THE CAN OF WORMS AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC WILL KNOW OF THE ATROCIOUS CONDITION THAT IS OUR AGED CARE SYSTEM.

MARK BUTLER MP: SING WOULD LIKE TO KNOW FROM WHICH ORGANISATIONS YOU ACTUALLY GATHER YOUR EVIDENCE? IT APPEARS THAT IT DOES NOT COME FROM COAL FACE STAFF COURAGEOUS ENOUGH TO SPEAK OUT. AN ANSWER FROM YOUR DEPARTMENT WOULD BE PUBLISHED ON SING.
