On Monday we contacted the CEOs of every major state-wide aged care organisation to make sure they are applying for the aged care retention bonus.
Every one of them told us within 24 hours that they were… except Southern Cross Care.
We’ve since heard some rumours that SCC are considering not paying the bonus because they think it's too much paperwork.
We really hope these are just rumours but, given CEO Robyn Boyd is the only one we're yet to hear from, it's a real worry.
There's no excuse not to give the payment and we'll be making this very clear to the CEO today.
We'll keep members in the loop.
