Disgraced nursing home owner claims abuse allegations due to attractiveness of daughters
Socialite former nursing home owner takes no responsibility for decades of allegation of abuse
Lipsett denies claims that she helped Cummings get another job. She said “This is another twisting of words. As employers we have to... It’s not a reference these days, it’s written in a format “did you employ this man, blah, blah blah?”, “would you re-employ this man?”, that type of thing. All that was answered, but the question on the reference “would you re-employ this man?”, the answer was “no”. And “would you recommend this man?”, the answer was “no”. It was not a reference.’
Following this incident she transferred control of the Home to her daughters Sarah and Avila.
Three members of staff were the subjects of additional allegations stemming back to 2008. The allegations claimed that Shivsagur ‘Kevin’ Poorun threw an elderly patient against a door jamb, injuring his head. They said Poorun had insisted that he was the only nurse allowed to bring a certain elderly female resident to the bathroom. Screams would be heard when he did.
Lipsett said ‘We all loved Kevin, he was the most fantastic worker in the nursing home. You can’t have eyes in the back of your head, you don’t know what’s going on anywhere unless you’re right there to witness it.
“And if the so-called whistleblowers knew about it, why didn’t they take it to the authorities? Tell the staff nurse, tell the nurse manager? That’s the line of authority and there is a complaints procedure written before everyone’s eyes and they are well aware of it. So it’s very hard to take the allegations seriously.”
She continued “First of all we find it hard to believe that it wasn’t reported. Because anyone who witnesses any form of abuse, any form of incorrect behavior in this nursing home... There is a zero tolerance for bad manners, there is zero tolerance for anything except best practices, that’s the best way of putting it.
‘And the staff know that, and if they saw anything that would upset a patient or would be against company policy they should go to the direct line of authority.’

Yes, capitalism is very good at providing an abundance of low value items such as food and electronics, just so long as the State (the nation) provide
