Labor pledges to crack down on ‘dodgy’ aged care providers04 April 2022
Federal Labor will introduce tough new penalties, including jail time, to stop ‘dodgy’ aged care providers neglecting and mistreating their residents, if it wins the upcoming federal election.
It will also ensure full transparency for Australian taxpayers and aged care recipients over where public and private funds are being spent by requiring providers to provide publicly available breakdowns of money spent on care, nursing, food, cleaning, and profits.
Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese announced the new measures yesterday, saying that after a decade of shameful neglect, a Labor Government would solve the crisis in aged care and put security, dignity, quality and humanity back into the embattled sector.
