To the Prime Minister, Minister Elliot and Minister Roxon,
What has changed in aged care since this letter below over four years ago? NOTHING!
What has changed for those Public Interest Whistleblowers who speak out on behalf of the vulnerable, elderly and disabled citizens in their care? NOTHING! 'SHOOT THE MESSENGER' IS STILL THE NAME OF THE GAME.
What message does sacking Public Interest Whistleblowers send to those considering reporting abuse, neglect and assault of our elderly and disabled citizens? KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR JOB.
What message does sacking those who speak out send to the abusers in the system? DON'T WORRY. IT WILL BE THE INFORMANTS AND THE WHISTLEBLOWERS WHO WILL HAVE THEIR EMPLOYMENT TERMINATED, NOT YOU.
SING SUGGESTS THAT THE REPORTING OF ABUSE, ASSAULT AND NEGLECT OF OUR VULNERABLE ELDERLY AND DISABLED NURSING HOME RESIDENTS, WILL CONTINUE TO BE DRIVEN UNDERGROUND. UNTIL THOSE DISCLOSING THE WRONGDOING ARE TREATED WITH RESPECT AND DIGNITY - RATHER THAN CONDEMNED, TARGETED AND VILIFIED - ABUSE IN OUR NURSING HOMES WILL ESCALATE. THE ABUSERS WILL FLOURISH AND CREDIBLE STAFF WILL LEAVE AGED CARE.
SING HAS IN ITS POSSESSION MANY OTHER CASES OF ABUSE, NEGLECT AND ASSAULT OF THE ELDERLY AND DISABLED. SING HAS IN ITS POSSESSION IRREFUTABLE PROOF OF THE COVER UP BY ENTITIES ENTRUSTED TO INVESTIGATE SUCH CASES.
