The Australian Government admits that they will fall short on their promise that all nursing homes will have a registered nurse onsite 24 hours a day by July.
Ms. Wells stated that the government will collaborate with facilities that fear they will not achieve the nursing requirements by July, and that no facilities will be closed if they do not make the deadline.
Many nursing homes have voiced their concerns with fulfilling this requirement, especially in regional areas.
An estimated $5.4 billion funding boost for (2022-23) will be used to assist with fulfilling this requirement, as well as the 200 care minutes per resident in nursing homes, 44 minutes from a registered nurse.
