It appears that many different entities with evidence of abuse, assault and neglect of our vulnerable elderly, frail and disabled citizens are definitely being heard. After the ABC Four Corners segment (please view link on the right side of the website)on Monday night 1st June 2009, it appears that many will now speak out. One of the cases mentioned on this programme has been in SING's possession for quite some time. Reporting of these serious cases will be done through the media and websites such as SING, as it is perhaps the only avenue left for credible staff to safely report such cases.
The floodgates are open and the evidence is flowing in rapidly. Please view the posts below. There are more cases to be posted by SING and the media coverage and interest has been piqued for some time.
Eventide management, Queensland Health and the federal Department of Health and Ageing cannot continue to shoot its credible Whistleblowers and family members who dare to speak out and report assault and abuse.
Watch this space.
