Stop the nursing cuts and protect the residents at Southern Cross Care Tasmania

07 December 2022

Southern Cross Care Tasmania are planning to terminate almost 50 enrolled nurses, replacing them with lower-paid personal care workers.

We need your help to stop this cynical, cost-cutting exercise from happening. Send an email to the CEO of Southern Cross Care Tasmania to let her know that we will not accept the cuts to enrolled nurses which diminish the quality of care for vulnerable aged care residents.

The Royal Commission recommended more qualified nurses in aged care, not less. Current government reforms in aged care are focused on improving the quality of care for residents, but some providers are gaming the system to maximise profits.

It’s unconscionable that these taxpayer-funded aged care providers are manipulating the Albanese Government’s reforms. Mandating minimum care minutes for ENs, RNs and PCWs in nursing homes across Australia must be implemented as a matter of urgency to protect the residents.

It only takes a few seconds to send an email to support enrolled nurses who are being cut from Southern Cross Care Tasmania. Help save nurses and protect the residents by sending an email here.
