Nurses are back in nursing homes

The Albanese Government is delivering on its commitment to put nurses back into nursing homes.

Registered nurses are now on-site in aged care homes 98 per cent of the time as a result of the Albanese Government’s 24/7 nursing commitment.

This Government promised Australians we would restore dignity to aged care residents, and our first month with 24/7 nursing has revealed a major increase in care with registered nurses in residential homes for 23.5 hours a day on average.

After just 15 months in office, our reforms have led to continuous improvement, with Quality Indicators and Star Ratings also showing positive increases.

24/7 registered nursing was a key recommendation of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety – it was ignored by Peter Dutton and the Coalition.

24/7 nursing improves the safety and quality of care for residents and prevents unnecessary trips to hospital emergency departments.

95 per cent of facilities have now reported their first month of data regarding 24/7 nursing.
