SHAME: That Queensland Health employs bullies to manage/mismanage Eventide, Brighton and Cooinda House, Redcliffe and places them in positions of power.
SHAME: That the dismissed Whistleblower has just received a bill for the grand total of $31.12 overpayment by Queensland Health's Salary Adjustment Unit. This repayment is to be paid by the Whistleblower before the 29 May 2009. This ridiculous payment to be paid after Queensland Health spent $27,000 in taxpayers' money to a private company hired to investigate (and SING uses this word tongue-in-cheek) serious matters regarding Eventide Nursing Home, Brighton.
SHAME: That a protected Whistleblower speaking out in the public interest and for the common good, had Eventide management try to black - list her. SING has proof that a very senior Eventide management staff member tried to interfere with the employment of one of our members now employed at Redcliffe Hospital. It wasn't enough that our member has suffered for exposing serious abuse and assault at Eventide, Brighton - but this suffering was compounded when our member was informed by Queensland Health that Eventide management tried to jeopardise her position at Redcliffe Hospital. This matter is now in the hands of the Queensland Police Service.
Emails from Queensland Health substantiating this alleged interference and recorded evidence regarding this serious matter will be posted shortly.
SHAME: That Eventide management encouraged subordinate staff to discredit and defame another protected Whistleblower with claims of racism, poor work practice and other trumped-up allegations. These allegations by a registered nurse and other colleagues were eventually withdrawn, but no apology was ever given. SING is informed that the Nursing Unit Manager responsible for encouraging this deliberate discrediting of the Whistleblower, has been deployed to another house at Eventide. The Whistleblower was so distraught at these blatant lies, that she took ten weeks off on long service leave. Please refer to "Discrediting Whistleblowers is easy ...." 30 January 2009.
Email and recorded evidence of this serious matter will be posted shortly.
SHAME; That the protected Whistleblower's Deed of Settlement and Release, signed by Queensland Health in October 2006 has never been honored. The protected Whistleblower agreed that she would forgo exoneration and an apology if certain clauses were included in this Deed. Please see Sunday 22 February 2009.
SHAME: That Queensland Health employed private groups to investigate serious assault and other matters reported to the Crime and Misconduct Commission on the 9 October 2007, and still the report has not been released to the taxpayer.
SING HAS REPEATEDLY ASKED FOR COPIES OF THESE REPORTS AND OTHERS, BUT TO DATE HAVE RECEIVED NOTHING.
SHAME: That the report into allegations against the protected Whistleblower was completed in early September 2008, but our SING SUPPORT MEMBER'S termination of employment did not take place until late February 2009, some 6 months later. THIS REPORT WAS POSTED TO THE WHISTLEBLOWER WITH COPIES OF PROGRESS NOTES INCLUDED. Only Eventide management were interviewed by this private company.
SING HAS HANDED OVER A COPY OF THIS REPORT AT THE REQUEST OF THE QUEENSLAND POLICE SERVICE. THIS REPORT HAS ALSO BEEN REQUESTED BY AN OPPOSITION MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT.
SHAME: That those speaking out about serious abuse and assault have REPRISAL committed against them and suffer accordingly. Hair loss, depression, anxiety, loss of career opportunity, loss of reputation, sleeplessness, broken teeth (due to grinding of teeth whilst asleep), weight gain or weight loss and many other harms to the Whistleblower or informant. SHAME, PREMIER AND MINISTER LUCAS - SHAME.
SHAME: That one of our SING members had to walk away from Eventide, after 11 years of service without even a reference, after being bullied by Eventide management.
SHAME: That the Employment Separation Certificate of the protected Whistleblower now reads MISCONDUCT and DISMISSAL - effectively destroying any opportunity for the Whistleblower to obtain any employment of any kind. Other serious acts of REPRISAL committed against another SING Whistleblower, by Eventide management, are soon to be posted. But the abusers remain employed at Eventide, Brighton.
THIS EMPLOYMENT SEPARATION CERTIFICATE WAS ALSO REQUESTED AND DULY GIVEN TO THE QUEENSLAND POLICE SERVICE.
SHAME: That those speaking out have to seek help from outside professional entities to obtain justice. THESE MATTERS ARE NOW IN THE HANDS OF LAWYERS.
SHAME: That the general public remain unaware of the amount of taxpayers' money Queensland Health spends to destroy Whistleblowers or Family members who dare to speak out about substandard care.
SHAME: That the witch-hunt continues against two of our SING members who clearly have had REPRISAL committed against them.
SHAME: That Queensland Health has become so arrogant that they believe that their endless pot of taxpayers' money insulates them against litigation, investigation or complaints, by the underdog.
NOT TRUE, PREMIER - NOT TRUE.
SING SUGGESTS THAT THESE TIME DELAYS ARE DELIBERATE AND DESIGNED TO WEAR DOWN ANYONE WHO REPORTS ABUSE, ASSAULT OR NEGLECT; WHETHER THEY BE INFORMANTS OR PROTECTED WHISTLEBLOWERS. BUT SOMETIMES, PREMIER, THESE PEOPLE SURVIVE AND DO NOT SUCCUMB TO OPPRESSIVE TACTICS USED BY YOUR SYCOPHANTIC BUREAUCRATS.
MORE DAMNING EVIDENCE OF BULLYING, INTIMIDATION, AND CORRUPTION TO BE POSTED. 18 HOURS OF RECORDED INTERVIEW WITH A PRIVATE GROUP AND OTHER RECORDED EVIDENCE SOON TO BE POSTED. THIS EVIDENCE CLEARLY SHOWS THAT CERTAIN EVENTIDE NURSING UNIT MANAGERS DEFAMED AND ENCOURAGED INCITEMENT AGAINST SING MEMBERS AND PROTECTED WHISTLEBLOWERS.
