Do you agree the Federal Government were negligent in making a Covid plan for Aust. Government-subsidised residential aged care facilities considering the death toll is now over 563?

By Lily . Created on 12 Sep, 2020
Richard Colbeck, the Minister for Aged Care & Senior Australians stated that cleaners, cooks, reception or office staff weren't taken into account when considering staffing in the event staff caught Covid, they only considered the nurses. The Prime Minister knew about Covid since Februrary giving plenty of time for a plan to be put in place, instead there were elderley patients waiting for hours to be fed, showered, given medication etc., even loved ones were told their parent was fine when in fact they had already passed away and were lying in their bed all day due to lack of staff and the next of kin were not told until the next day. People have spoken only last week that things have not improved making one wonder why Scott Morrison has not sacked the Minister involved. Scott Morrison should take full responsibility himself for the 563+ deaths in Victoria's Aged Care & the shambolic state these facilities are still in, as he is the Prime Minister of Australia.

Aged Care owners are the main culprits with their excessive Cost cutting measures like nursing staff thus ignoring the standard of care they profess to provide
