Hi Paul, unfortunately it's not just me. We have increased work loads, and less and less staff, as the registered nurse I was expected to look after over 100 residents. There were between 4-14 staff depending on the time of day. We just don't have the time, staff or resources to care at the level people deserve. So many nurses and carers in nursing homes have major anxiety and depression. Our management only seemed to care about making money, you also have those who see aged care as easy work and do the absolute minimum required, the don't care about the residents, this of course adds to the stress for those of us who do. Yes we pass accreditation because in the week before we clean, up staff levels, activities to ensure that we meet criteria then everything goes back to normal. I always would feel guilty if I was unable to complete all my tasks I set for myself, even if it was checking back with a resident. As a senior staff member I would take care of the staff under me before myself, and of course I was taken advantage of. Whenever I would bring up issues or concerns to management they would ignore it. People got hurt and then management would of course blame the staff for not telling them of the problem. I anonymously made a complaint to the aged care commission,after which we got a memo stating if anyone had problems they needed to talk first with management before reporting the home. I still believe that my future is in aged care, as I love it but I need to find a way to support my mental health while doing so. There is so little support not just for residents but also for carers and nurses. It really seems that aged care is a thing so few people care about, especially because it doesn't make money. It seems that irs an area everyone wants to ignore and push aside as unimportant. I got know what can be done to change the current system.
