  1. Expressions of Interest? I worked 10years at eventide on a casual/part time basis. I had to sit the selection criteria to get full time employment with QHealth. There are ain's there that are given full time employment without having to go through this process. Why,is that? Management have a lot to answer to but, they are accountable to know one..

  2. Former Registered Nurse of EventideFebruary 25, 2009 at 11:17 PM

    Anne Lastovicka is the contactable person for the Eventide AIN expression of interest no wonder there were problems. She is one of Queensland Health's managers who needs investigating.

    LOL Anne Lastovicka (AL) single handedly runs Eventide, sticking her nose into everything. She is a nasty piece of work and whilst I was working at Eventide, I reported a certain nurse on night duty on DH1, no less then 6 (six) times and nothing was done. This nurse has since been investigated but they just move her around. Move the problem on, hey AL.
    AL puts her pets first and damn the rest of you. You would think the woman had worms, but, it is just her pets shoe laces.

  4. Karen should have been reported six times for assaulting residents and maybe she would still be working at Eventide and shut her eyes to things she saw. It seems that being reported for abuse is less of an offence thatn speaking out. We have lost another good nurse. Anne Lastovicka is no friend of mine either, but she has got quite a few favourites.

  5. Anne Lastovicka tried to destroy my life. To this day i don't know why? She hand picked her staff for Saltwood and workforce at Eventide.. She does need to be investigated. But, this will never happen. Why do we have a DON? Anne is running Eventide all by herself.. She is a bully and an evil woman. My daughter is a university trained Registered Nurse. She worked for many years as an ain, i encouraged her to do her degree. She is now a theatre nurse at Holy Spirit. She was informed by Num Lastovicka that there is no job at Eventide for her, as she is to over qualified.. Please explain Maggie????

  6. Thank you Sheryl for your ongoing support. This Nurse Unit Manager(Ms Lastovicka)intimidated,bullied and victimized you for what you stood up for. Honesty and support of our frail and aged citizens. QHealth has lost a good nurse again..The politicians need to look at how many people are in management positions in Queensland Health. Top heavy.. It is mostly bitchy women??? Yes,i am a woman. Not that many men in these positions?? Why is that???

  7. Men don't want to put up with the bitchiness either. Couldn't think of anything worse than a boss with PMT

  8. Anne Lastovicka has been allowed to wield too much power for far too long...she should have been brought under control long ago.
    For far too long Eventide management has been either too week or just turned a blind eye to Anne's behaviour, which has just encouraged Anne to continue along her way picking her favourites and tossing everyone else aside.

    I would like to see Anne taken down.

  10. Management is not innocent. They are corrupt and answer to no one. They are out to protect there jobs. They are on big wages. They all need investigating. It is the nurses doing the hands on that are innocent. Karen opened up a can of worms. Good for her.. What has management got to hide?

  11. Anne innocent??? Please what an insult. She is the Daughter of the Devil incarnate. God help us all...

  12. What a vicious mound of words and accusations!"I would like to see Anne taken down"??? What great whistleblowers you all will make or do you prefer the anonymous character assassination that demonstrates such courage and fortitude! As Karen states in her Paper for “Pathological Behaviours in the Workplace” Conference, 16 Dec. 2008... when describing her ordeal as a whistleblower "You can expect to be the subject of a great deal of gossip and rumour, which will damage your reputation. I have found that some rumours are quite interesting, but rarely based in fact."
    What makes any of you different to those who made Karen feel this way when you are attempting to publically humiliate anyone but most of all this "Anne Lastovika" who works at Eventide - all based on gossip and unfounded truths? If what you are stating is indeed true then set about doing what Karen also suggests..."When there is irrefutable evidence that wrongdoing has occurred, the perpetrators reported will be held to account for their actions." Wouldn’t that be time well spent?

  13. I know many things are based on gossip and unfounded truth. A lot of wrongdoing has occurred. In all my years with QHealth i have not witnessed any people being held accountable for there actions. That is why they move people to different departments of QHealth. We can only live in hope that Anne Lastovicka is one of them. What a party that would be? Obviously you have not had contact with this woman? There is so much cover up and she is only the tip of the iceberg. No wonder management are getting nervous. Oh dear Karen speaks out and you all start to run for cover.

  14. History will tell you that it wasn't the tip of the iceberg that sunk the Titanic!

  15. I can only hope that Eventide is a sinking ship. It is a corrupt system. Lets hope it goes down with all the management being washed out to sea.

    I may hide my identity but I have spoken out about Anne Lastovicka to many investigations and hopefully one day they will be heard in court. She is a bully and a tyrant. Yes there are investigations going on about Anne Lastovicka so to all those who have felt her wrath, Karen can you put a post up of whom they can contact so they too can have their day and add to the damning list of infraction this evil woman has.

  17. My email address is listed on the right hand side. Over the years and in my experience, there is no entity that I have had anything to do with, that I can recommend. SING will post any irrefutable evidence on the website for staff wanting to give their evidence. It is imperative that - in the public interest and for the common good - evidence is posted for the public to witness. This is the purpose of SING SUPPORT GROUP. Evidence of wrongdoing will be posted every working day where possible. Anonymity for staff coming forward in the public interest, is guaranteed. Please email me and I will pass on my phone number to anyone who has evidence. Information today has been sent to Dean Wells, Rob Sullivan and Vicky Darling. SING does not expect an answer back from any of those contacted. Rob Messenger did respond.

  18. I have spoken with my member of parliament and they have assured me they will investigate this Ms Lastovicka. Worked with her briefly. I can not understand how she has been able to continue to be a Nurse Unit Manager for QHealth

  19. I too have reported the lovely Anne's favouritism to a DON at Eventide. Gee she must have some big pockets, as she has the DON in hers! How else do you explain the way she gets away with all of her bullying ways.

  20. Those girls in Workforce were hand picked by the NUM in question. What does that tell you? Do they have admin skills? No. Do they have access to private information? Yes. Do they pick and choose who is flavour of the month to get work? Yes. Do they come out of the office and have contact with our elderly? No. We are short staffed and have many residents to attend to, we do our best to make there lives more pleasant. They would so much appreciate that these people in Admin reallelize that they are someones Mum or Dad.

  21. To Anonymous above, about the staffing in the workforce centre at Eventide Home:-
    1.how do you know what skills those women or men have. I work in a hospital workforce/call in unit, and it is none of my fellow colleagues business what qualifications I possess, and they are definitely not privy to my information,
    2.what makes you so precious, didn't you have the qualifications to do the job, or didn't you have the required standard of confidentiality.
    3.Do you have any morals, and do you know what the word "Ethics" stands for.
    Baby - get yourself a life, and get on with doing the job you reckon you are so skilled at.

  22. Well i do have a life, and it is uneducated people like you that get in these positions of power. My mother passed on her morals to me, so i hope to be a better person. I live my life with respect and dignity of other people including our frail and aged. I do know what ethics stand for? Sorry to say, what ethics do you have when you sit in an air conditioned office. Would it be so inconvenient for you to come and help our elderly get there nutrition and fluids when you are not busy? I am skilled at protecting our elders from the likes of you. Not to mention my Degree....

  23. It's a pity your Mum didn't pass on her spelling and punctuation knowledge. I don't sit in an air conditioned office, I run around the hospital all day, with a phone in my ear, and a folder in my arms. My grandfather died in Eventide,(the only reason I have looked into this site), and he received the best and most dignified care we could have wished for. The NUM you keep referring to was in charge of the floor, and the nurses were wonderful. Thank God you weren't there, with your bitter and spiteful attitude. Why don't you try and get a job in the canteen down there, or doesn't your degree qualify you for that either? Thinking about it, your attitude would probably lose them so much business they'd be closed down for loss of profits. Shame Ms. Degree, Shame. It's a good thing Mrs. Karen Smith was keeping an eye out for abuse - remember, abuse can be attitude alone, and you certainly seem to have a lot of "BAD" attitude.

  24. They all have a folder in there arms.. What is that? Does it make you look more important? You refer to your grandfather. I have seen staff come over from PCH because the NUM does not know how to do a syringe driver. Karen Smith does a great job in speaking out. I commend her. It is a disgrace that she was sacked. Why? Because she spoke up for our elderly. I have seen many things over the years. Your grandfather was lucky. I am grateful that my mother died in a palliative care ward. God rest there souls..

  25. Your grandfather died at Eventide? You need to pull your head out of the sand and get a grip on reality? You are the one with the attitude as i can see? Stop attacking this person that you know nothing about? You are so very lucky that he died pain free. God bless him and his family.

  26. This NUM in question is still employed? Why is that? Nothing has changed. I believe in why Karen is speaking out. It is now 2010. Corruption continues.
