Support to mandate registered nurses in aged care 24/7 is gaining momentum. A motion was put to the House of Representatives and now a bill is being put to the Senate for debate.

Senator, Rex Patrick will introduce the Aged Care Amendment (Registered Nurses Ensuring Quality Care) Act 2021 in the Senate on Wednesday, 1 September to ensure there is an RN on site 24/7 in all Australian nursing homes. Email Senators to make sure they support this important requirement.

Currently, there is no legal requirement in the Aged Care Act (1997) for a registered nurse (RN) to be on site in aged care homes at all times. This was a key recommendation from the Royal Commission into Aged Care.
