A regional New South Wales aged care facility is facing further sanctions after a resident was admitted to hospital with maggots in his head wound.

Key points:

  • The same Bupa-run facility came under fire in January after the Australian Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission identified several issues
  • Aged Care Minister Ken Wyatt said the facility could be closed permanently if the situation did not improve
  • Nine Bupa-owned aged care homes have been sanctioned for failing to meet compliance benchmarks

The man, a resident of a residential aged care facility in Eden on the NSW south coast, was taken to hospital this week after the discovery.

He is undergoing treatment.

The same facility came under fire in January after the Australian Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission identified several issues relating to medication management, clinical care, staffing, human resources and behaviour management.

It is unable to accept any new residents or receive Commonwealth funding until June as a result of the sanctions.

Aged Care Minister Ken Wyatt said the facility — run by multinational health care provider Bupa — could be closed permanently if the situation did not improve.

"It's totally unacceptable that a provider that has had a visit from the Aged Care Safety and Quality Commission should, in a short period, have someone who has maggots in a wound," he told the ABC.

"The quality agency will certainly go back to that Bupa facility and will not allow them to provide reasons that are unacceptable.

"Ultimately as we have done in the past, we have closed facilities that have not performed."

Bupa Aged Care Eden general manager Sharon Benge said they had apologised to the resident and his family.

She said a review of wound management procedures was underway and staff were receiving extra training.

Combined Pensioner and Superannuation Association spokesman Paul Versteege said it was a sign of "chronic neglect" at the facility.

"It's a real concern," he said.

"Bupa is a for-profit provider [so] the law says they have to put their shareholders first — not the people they care for.

"You can't blame the staff, but you can blame management for this sort of stuff."

The facility is the ninth Bupa aged care home sanctioned for failing to meet compliance benchmarks set out by the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency.
