Nurses in aged care are hard-pressed to do the best they can in impossible circumstances. Our residents’ needs are higher, yet there is chronic understaffing.
Australia has strict staff ratios for childcare but there are no ratios for aged care and no laws to ensure our elderly get the care they need.
The NSWNMA has joined with the ANMF in a national campaign to change the law so there are nurse to resident ratios in every aged care facility.
