A Melbourne Nursing Home is going to be closed because it failed a surprise audit by the Federal Government and so its residents will be relocated to other homes. You would think that the families of the 55 residents who had been poorly cared for at this home would be applauding the Government for doing something about the inadequate conditions. But no, the families have begun up a petition to keep the home open.
Why? Well, they say that their aged relatives are happy there, but I suspect that it’s all about the families baulking at the inconvenience of visiting an aged parent somewhere else.
Imagine if a tray containing faeces were found in a nursing home and the government did nothing about it, people would be clamouring for action. This is what was discovered at Rosden and yet the families of those wretches want them to stay put. This is in spite of Rosden having failed 17 of the 44 categories of the audit. Makes you weep at the callousness of some people towards their “loved ones”.
