Overwhelmed disability watchdog routinely dismisses abuse and neglect : Crikey Ing

The NDIS regulatory body is overwhelmed and ineffective, with thousands of complaints going ignored.

  1. In the UK I feel that the Care Quality Commission (CQC) is more concerned with record keeping than the quality of care delivery, but on reading this article about the Australian, National Disability Insurance Scheme’s (NDIS) regulatory body, it is clear that our CQC is way above that of your NDIS in looking at issues of abuse and safeguarding.

    That does not mean that our CQC could not do more, because it could, but on dealing with abuse and safeguarding issues there should be a Zero tolerance and therefore there is always more that could be done.

    No one should have to put up with abuse, but unfortunately not everyone is willing to treat others with dignity and respect and it is because of these people that any Body with the responsibility to monitor the quality of care should do so to ensure that good quality care is there for everyone.

    Just why are people with disabilities not being respected, in effect all over the world, when help and support should be a priority.

    Is it that it is ingrained within the ‘Human Race’ that we are all so selfish and are not bothered about other people, which is completely the wrong attitude.

    In India, it appears people with disabilities are cast into the street, in some Arabic countries disabled people are slain, to name but a few.

    Here are a couple of articles which mention discrimination to disabled people, https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2016/12/18/504964701/how-is-the-world-treating-people-with-disabilities?t=1597830102832
