Hospitalizations

Published on October 19th, 2017

The Age had an article about Australia’s “broken” nursing home industry.  Elderly people are being sent in record numbers from nursing homes to be treated in hospitals.  The hospital transfer figures come in the midst of a debate on the quality of aged care in Australia, and accusations that nursing homes are in crisis.

The bulk of the transfers happen during the week, with the number plunging on weekends, which, according to the nurses’ union reflects a serious lack of staff on hand in many nursing homes on Saturdays and Sundays to make clinical decisions.
