‘Appalling’: Maggots found in aged care resident’s head wound

Staff at the Eden Bupa facility will undergo additional training.

Medical Error Action Group founder Lorraine Long tells Ben Fordham “you couldn’t hear anything more appalling.”

“Bupa is continually being sanctioned.

“These instances need to stop.”

In a statement, the facility said they are working to ensure the resident receives appropriate care.
