Aged care nurses highlight urgent need for safe staffing
Aged care nurses and supporters gathered outside Member for McMahon, Chris Bowen’s office in south western Sydney to send a message to Canberra.
With the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety due to hand down its final report by 26 February, members of the NSW Nurses and Midwives’ Association (NSWNMA) are calling on the Morrison Government, and all political parties, to act.
Over the coming weeks, aged care nurses from Broken Hill to the Blue Mountains, Byron Bay to Albury will highlight the need for staffing ratios and greater transparency of government funding.
The NSWNMA says the Morrison Government cannot continue to stall on its responsibility to urgently fix the aged care sector.
