Nurses call for an improved aged care sector

A ‘walk with nurses’ was held in Mullum last Friday, and aimed to highlight the concern aged care nurses have around fee structures, safety issues and staff training in order to properly care for our elderly.

I was deeply saddened by Virginia Black’s letter of spraying danger and on her husband’s death.

I live next to the Ocean Shores golf course, which is sprayed every other day ten metres from my home. We all suffer from chronic fatigue and other chronic health conditions – some doctors and naturopaths have suggested a causal link with chemical sprays.

There is no signage or warning when spraying and often the spraying occurs on windy days.

Are there any doctors out there with information that may assist us in understanding a causal link? Any evidence-based research?

As a community we need to get quality information out there. My family has suffered enough.

Sujay Piper, Ocean Shores
