Minister Elliot, Minister Roxon and Premier Bligh: SING SUPPORT GROUP and others to protest outside Eventide.
Minister Elliot, Minister Roxon and Premier Bligh
The second email was sent to you and many others on the 27 February 2009. SING SUPPORT GROUP can only assume that you intend to DO NOTHING as there has been no response from your office.
SING SUPPORT GROUP acknowledges that the general public have a right to know that some are not willing to be cowed by Queensland Health or Eventide management.
SING intends to inform the public that staff speaking out will have their employment terminated, or, as in the case of another whistleblower - no casual work at Eventide. This deliberate message is designed to prevent credible staff from reporting abuse.
SING intends to inform the public that one of its members has had her employment terminated by Queensland Health.
SING intends to inform the public that this member and her family will have no income for three months until she is entitled to a Centrelink benefit.
SING intends to lobby for an Inquiry into the management/mismanagement of Eventide.
SING intends to place a newspaper advertisement with the times and dates of the protest rallies.
SING intends to set up a booth with articles, taped radio interviews with family members and various staff, photographs, DVD's and any other evidence relevant to the cases in SING's possession.
AS STATED IN THE FIRST EMAIL MINISTER: PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE AFRAID TO COME FORWARD WITH INFORMATION and it is information, that SING intends to disseminate to the general public. Cover up at Eventide has been allowed to flourish for too long under the guise of CODE OF CONDUCT. The genuine advocates at Eventide are not being protected and the abusers flourish.
TO COME: PROOF THAT AN EVENTIDE NURSING UNIT MANAGER MADE REMARKS TO OTHERS ATTENDING A MEETING, THAT CONSTITUTE THE TORT OF "INCITEMENT". DEFAMATORY REMARKS WERE MADE AGAINST THE SING MEMBER WHO HAS HAD HER EMPLOYMENT TERMINATED BY QUEENSLAND HEALTH. DOCUMENTS WILL BE POSTED SHORTLY.
ALSO EVIDENCE THAT AN ENORMOUS SUM OF MONEY ($500,000) SET ASIDE BY QUEENSLAND HEALTH, DRAMATICALLY REDUCED IN AMOUNT ($100,000) UPON THE DEATH OF A MALE DISABLED RESIDENT OF COOINDA HOUSE, REDCLIFFE. THE MOTHER OF THIS DECEASED RESIDENT WAS UNDER SURVEILLANCE AT THE DIRECTION OF MANAGEMENT. IT APPEARS THAT THIS MOTHER DARED TO COMPLAIN ABOUT HER SON'S CARE TO COOINDA HOUSE MANAGEMENT. THIS MOTHER HAD HER GUARDIANSHIP REMOVED DAYS BEFORE THE MALE RESIDENT'S DEATH. ONE OF THE INTERESTED PARTIES INVOLVED IN THIS REMOVAL OF GUARDIANSHIP, WAS THE DIRECTOR OF NURSING OF COOINDA HOUSE. A FEW DAYS AFTER HER SON'S DEATH THIS MOTHER ENDURED A 3 HOUR POLICE INTERVIEW AND WAS CAUTIONED.
