Australia’s aged-care system is no longer ‘fit for purpose’ and requires a major overhaul, according to Peter Rozen QC. He is one of the counsel assisting the royal commission into the sector. Rozen and Peter Gray QC have made a 500-page submission to the inquiry which features 124 recommendation, including the introduction of mandatory staff ratios and a legally enforceable duty of care for aged-care providers. Rozen says that at least one in five nursing home residents have received substandard care, while it is estimated that about 50 are sexually abused each week.
