After viewing the ABC’s Aged Care debacle I wondered if what is known as Lateral Violence could be the step-by-step springboard to the problem.
Stage 1. The adult group-cult circle as it closes the gates thus restricting a person’s admission via snide remarks.
Stage 2. The young to teenage alliance: those who use words of violence (usually by text) causing horrid outcomes – including death.
Stage 3. The aged care recipient left open to mental and physical abuse by an employed member of the above owing to the conduct of stages one or two, or both.
Apart from pondering, let’s call it for what it is… bullying. Those in aged need all the support we can offer.
