Premier! Queensland Health's incompetent sycophants are still in denial.

PREMIER!
ARE YOU GOING TO REOPEN THE CASES FOR WHICH GORDON NUTTALL WAS RESPONSIBLE? THE CASE MENTIONED IN THE POST BELOW (Saturday 25 July 2009) IS JUST ONE THAT SHOULD BE REOPENED. AND PREMIER, THE GENERAL PUBLIC HAS A RIGHT TO KNOW HOW MUCH TAXPAYERS' MONEY HAS BEEN PAID OUT TO PRIVATE COMPANIES TO INVESTIGATE QUEENSLAND HEALTH STAFF WHO DARED TO BLOW THE WHISTLE. PRIVATE COMPANIES SUCH AS CORPORATE SUCCESS GROUP AND LKA GROUP WITH TERMS OF REFERENCE DELIBERATELY SO NARROW THAT THE THE WORD "INVESTIGATION" BECOMES A FARCE.

Queensland Health's sycophants have not changed since these articles in the Northside Chronicle and the Sunday Mail, over four years ago. We all now know that the previous State Health Minister and previous Member for Sandgate, Gordon Nuttall has been found guilty of corruption. We all know what happened to the previous Chief Health Officer and the previous Director-General in 2005. Incompetency, cronyism and corruption for years, and who do your incompetent sycophants sack, intimidate, bully or suspend? Queensland Health staff who dare to speak out and defend and protect the human rights of the older and disabled citizens in their care.

Premier: This propaganda should actually read DON'T REPORT IT, IGNORE IT


TO THE PREMIER
This brochure should be re-written to read - DON'T REPORT IT, IGNORE IT. The general public have a right to know - especially if they have a family member residing in a state government nursing home - that staff "reporting it" will have their employment terminated by Queensland Health. If they "report it" and they are casual staff they will receive no more work. Whistleblowers also face the risk of having other employment - they may eventually acquire - interfered with by vindictive, disgruntled management. SING has documented evidence of this type of vindictive action in our possession.



And the second part of this Queensland Health document, Premier; is it just propaganda too?

TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT
Queensland Health have terminated the employment of Karen Smith, SING SUPPORT GROUP member, for releasing copies of documents (delivered to her home) to Network Ten in March 2008. These documents were released to Network Ten in the public interest. These documents were also hand-delivered, by the Whistleblower, to the Queensland Police Service. This case involved the sexual assaults of at least seven frail, older females by a male resident residing in Bramble House, Eventide Nursing Home, Brighton. The assaults took place over a number of months and were first brought to the attention of an advocacy group in July 2007, when the victims numbered two. An informant was to make a media statement at that time, but reneged. After exhausting all avenues, both federal and state, these copied documents were released to Network Ten.

It appears that Queensland Health believe that this male resident's right to privacy and confidentiality far outweighed the human rights of his female victims to live in a safe environment, free from sexual/physical and psychological assault/abuse. Premier, if one of these females victims was your Mother wouldn't you want to know?

TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC
Your family members residing in a nursing home where staff can have their employment terminated for speaking out when they witness sexual, physical and psychological abuse/assault- are not safe. While the threat of employment termination hangs over the head of staff witnessing wrongdoing - your family members are not safe.

Your family members are not safe because staff who are afraid their employment is at risk if they report will - SEE NOTHING, SAY NOTHING AND HEAR NOTHING.

TO THE PREMIER, MINISTER LUCAS AND MINISTER ELLIOT

SHAME ON ALL OF YOU THAT THE ONLY WAY STAFF ARE ABLE TO STOP ASSAULT, ABUSE AND NEGLECT IS TO CONTACT THE MEDIA OR REPORT DIRECTLY TO THE QUEENSLAND POLICE SERVICE.

SHAME ON ALL OF YOU FOR MISLEADING QUEENSLAND HEALTH STAFF TO BELIEVE THAT THE REPORTING OF SUCH ABUSE/ASSAULT WILL BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. IT IS NOT.

SHAME ON ALL OF YOU THAT YOU ALLOW THE ABUSERS TO FLOURISH AND REMAIN EMPLOYED WHILST THE INFORMANTS OR WHISTLEBLOWERS ARE VILIFIED AND VICTIMISED.

SHAME ON ALL OF YOU THAT THE BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS OF THE SEVEN FEMALE VICTIMS - TO LIVE IN A SAFE ENVIRONMENT - WAS NOT PROVIDED BY QUEENSLAND HEALTH.

DOES ANYONE AT BRAMBLE HOUSE, EVENTIDE, BRIGHTON HAVE FURTHER INFORMATION REGARDING THIS SERIOUS MATTER?

Please see posts: 26, 27 February 2009 and 29 March 2009.


Other documents and evidence regarding other cases covered up by Queensland Health will be posted shortly. Another Network Ten video will be posted soon.

WHAT'S NEW? QUEENSLAND HEALTH BREACHES THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES UNDER THE AGED CARE ACT 1997.

Once again Eventide Nursing Home, Brighton has been found to have breached the Aged Care Act by not reporting physical assault:
An investigation of the issues has found that Queensland Health breached their responsibilities under the Aged Care Act 1997. The details of the breach are:

the service failed to put in place, within 24 hours of the start of the incident/suspicion of the physical assault, arrangements for management of the resident's behaviour. Consequently, the service could not use discretion not to report and therefore should have reported these incidents to the Department and Police in accordance with Section 63-AA(2)of the Aged Care Act 1997.

ONCE AGAIN, SING SUGGESTS THAT A PUBLIC INQUIRY INTO EVENTIDE, BRIGHTON IS IMPERATIVE.
