The United Nations has warned of a growing crisis of nursing homes and a growing shortage of beds, which are increasingly becoming overcrowded.
The report from the Nursing Home Association of Australia (NHA) and the Nursing Homes Federation of Australia states that around 80% of nursing home beds are at risk of becoming unsafe over the next two decades.
It’s been a big change for a number of years and now it’s really important to understand the challenges and the risks in the industry.
The new study, released this week, examines the state of nursing beds across Australia, and provides data on how many people are sleeping in nursing homes, how many have died while in a nursing home, and how many beds are empty or unsafe.
“The number of people in nursing home care is rising and we’re seeing a growing number of deaths, particularly in nursing houses,” Dr David Dey, a senior researcher for the report, told The Verge.
“That is a problem for nursing homes.
Dey says there are signs that nursing home deaths are on the rise. “
The challenge is how we get people to come back into the community.”
Dey says there are signs that nursing home deaths are on the rise.
There are more than half of the Australian population in care and more than a third of those are in nursing facilities.
“If we continue to grow at this rate, there will be a significant impact on our society,” he said.
“There is no reason to think that the current trajectory won’t continue.”
We are seeing the first signs of that as we get to the year 2030.
“Deey says there is a growing concern about the safety of people who have stayed in nursing care for more than six months.”
People are finding that they can get infected with the common cold,” he explained.”
They can get the flu and die.””
It is a very serious situation.
People have been getting sick and dying and there’s a lack of education.
“The report notes that nursing homes face a challenge in keeping their beds secure, with a recent review by the Department of Health found that a third to half of nursing facilities have failed to secure a secure bed for their staff.
It says there have been a number issues identified in the last six months, including an increase in the number of beds not securing a secure place for the patient.”
It’s a huge concern for us that we are not doing enough to secure our beds and we are certainly not doing it as quickly as we should,” Dey said.NHA’s chief executive, Heather Davenport, said the report was a reminder of how much work goes into ensuring a safe environment for people who live in nursing and caring homes.”
The new report is the latest in a series of research releases by NHA, including one from last year that warned of nursing shortage in a nation of ageing populations.”
Our goal is to be the healthiest and safest workplace in the world by 2020.”
The new report is the latest in a series of research releases by NHA, including one from last year that warned of nursing shortage in a nation of ageing populations.
A previous report found that the number and types of nursing and care homes in Australia had increased by nearly 20% between 2005 and 2014.
The NHA also released a statement last week saying it was working to meet the requirements of a new Health Department report that was due in early 2020, which would also be published this week.
