Abstract

{Extract}
Recent airing of shocking treatment of elderly residents in Australian aged care facilities has led Prime Minister Scott Morrison to announce a royal commission. Sadly, however, the allegations of abuse and appalling conditions in nursing homes are not new. The question becomes, therefore, what has resulted in poor outcomes for vulnerable citizens, and why have we permitted such treatment to go on?
