@ScottMorrisonMP I have done a reality check today, and decided that reality sucks. Covid positive elderly patients alone, sedated and dying, abandoned in their own faeces, while others are being crawled over by ants is well below “excellent standards” demanded by Aussie’s.
We need to learn from this and prevent it.1: Increase infection control massively at hospitals so that they can take on covid positive patients without collapsing due to transmission to staff.2:Set up a highly trained rescue squad to take over distressed facilities. 3:#Go4ZeroCT
The only effective ring fencing of aged care homes ever done was in France, where the staff locked themselves in with the residents while the storm passed. euronews.com/2020/05/04/not…
As this is a big ask, I suggest we take the “easier” route and aim for zero community transmission instead.
In preparation for the next outbreak every facility must submit its floor plan and occupancy to the government so that early decisions can be made as to whether evacuation/partial evacuation or manage in place suits the building best. On site infection control will be needed.
This will give an idea of the resources that will be required, state and federal planning for how and where to manage patients/residents. This will help to activate emergency planning at state level also. What activities need to be shut down in order to divert resources.
Much like a fire drill, a residential facility should have a plan suited to its needs prepared and rehearsed. Aussies shouldn’t be bitten by bad planning or ants again.
