  • TitleAged care residents need an apology too
    DescriptionWitnessing an elderly woman with terror in her eyes, shouting incoherently as she struggled in a restraint chair in the corridor of an aged care facility while staff ignored her and attended to paperwork for the facility's accreditation has led a CSU nursing academic to question the meaning of the Rudd government's coming apology to 'The Forgotten Australians' who were detained in government welfare institutions in bygone decades.
