In a response to the Review of National Aged Care Quality Regulatory Processes led by Kate Carnell, the Government has announced new changes that will impact facilities and providers. The scandals that have rocked the Oakden nursing home were the starting point for the review, and the need to answer to issues they presented has spurred a range of new initiatives and rules.
