Same thing in Queensland, Australia
A whistleblower nurse there reported bashings of the elderly and infirm by care-home staff
She reported that a young man there with a condition which rendered him helpless, died under mysterious circumstances
His elderly mother was not informed of his death for days
Prior to her son's death, the manager of the facility reportedly claimed guardianship of the young man, despite that his mother was still alive and
was paying for her son's care
Of $400,000 set aside for her son's continuing care, $300,000 was reportedly discovered to be 'missing', after his death
It was discovered the young man had been excoriated
! (means his rectum and surrounding tissue had been cored like an apple) WHY ?
What evidence was contained within the missing organs and tissues ?
And elderly man in a wheelchair was beaten to a pulp and his jaw broken as shown in X-rays available at the link
Elderly patients were bashed by nursing staff and left naked and freezing under cold showers for hours
The whistleblower nurse has taken the above and much more evidence to the Queensland Health Department repeatedly. She was tricked, defamed,
and she was sacked
She fears/knows incidents such as those detailed above are continuing unabated, under the nose of the Health Dept. and government
