Eventide management and Queensland Health denied that any abuse took place. The Queensland Police Service report below, clearly disputes those denials.
Queensland Health's Audit Operational Review Unit stuff's up from the beginning. The Minister involved in this case and other serious abuse/assault cases at Eventide, Brighton is now serving a sentence in prison for corruption. See articles below.
Missing words: Karen Smith caused the resident to be:
This clearly delusional, defamatory letter was written by the registered nurse to the newspaper reporter. The reporter thought the Whistleblower had a right to have a copy. This registered nurse and the abusive advanced assistant in nursing remained in the mental health unit for two more months on night duty together. This registered nurse was responsible for the distribution of medication to mentally ill and frail elderly and disabled patients. She was also in a position of power over subordinate staff. It was the Public Interest Whistleblower who was removed from the unit by Eventide management and Queensland Health's District Manager.
Please read paragraph 4 very carefully. This registered nurse was allowed to remain in charge of a mental health unit , working night shifts, for a further two months after the Public Interest Disclosure to the Crime and Misconduct Commission. This was permitted with the full knowledge of Eventide management and Queensland Health. It was the Whistleblower who was removed from the unit - not the abusers. Tell the truth Minister: Reprisal is a real possibility for those who speak out without proper support.
To Whistleblowers and staff speaking out: If you keep delaying, you give bureaucrats plenty of time to re - write history. If you keep delaying, you give them time to gather enough false evidence to discredit you. If you keep delaying, you give them enough time to wear you down so you will resign due to distress. Other Whistleblowers' stories to follow.
THIS POST ABOVE WAS WRITTEN ON THE 30 AUGUST 2009. IT HAS COME TO SING'S ATTENTION RECENTLY THAT NEW EVIDENCE IS AVAILABLE PROVING THAT THE SACKED PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWER HAS BEEN VALIDATED IN HER REPORTING OF THE DESPICABLE CONDUCT OF THE REGISTERED NURSE AND THE ADVANCED ASSISTANT IN NURSING IN THIS SERIOUS MATTER. PLEASE NOTE THE LINK (1n) ON THE RIGHT: DARINA MASLAUSKAS V QUEENSLAND NURSING COUNCIL AND IN PARTICULAR CLAUSE 43 OF THIS REPORT.
SHAME - PREMIER AND MINISTER LUCAS - SHAME.
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT EVENTIDE MANAGEMENT AND QUEENSLAND HEALTH CONTINUED TO TARGET THE WHISTLEBLOWER AFTER IT WAS KNOWN THAT THIS REGISTERED NURSE WAS INDEED MENTALLY ILL?
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT EVENTIDE MANAGEMENT AND QUEENSLAND HEALTH CONTINUED TO MOVE THIS REGISTERED NURSE FROM PLACE TO PLACE LIKE A PAEDOPHILE PRIEST - RATHER THAN DEAL WITH HER MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES?
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWER'S EVIDENCE WAS MISREPORTED FROM THE VERY BEGINNING BY QUEENSLAND HEALTH?
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT A FAMILY MEMBER REPORTED HER MOTHER'S ABUSE TO THE DISTRICT MANAGER IN SEPTEMBER 2004 AND NOTHING WAS DONE?
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE NURSING UNIT MANAGER OF FLINDER'S HOUSE MENTAL HEALTH UNIT OR THE DIRECTOR OF NURSING AT EVENTIDE, DID NOT KNOW THAT THIS REGISTERED NURSE WAS SERIOUSLY MENTALLY ILL?
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE QUEENSLAND NURSES' UNION OF EMPLOYEES REPRESENTED THE TWO ABUSIVE STAFF MEMBERS AND TRIED TO PRESSURE THE PUBLIC INTEREST WHISTLEBLOWER TO CHANGE HER STATEMENT?
The 4 paragraphs that the Queensland Nurses' Union of Employees wanted removed:

SING has been asked in comment 6. What did Queensland Health's Human Resource Management ( HRM ) do to help? The answer is below:
A meeting was held with Eventide management, Queensland Health's HRM and the Queensland Nurses Union's organiser on the 14 May 2004. This meeting took place prior to the Public Interest Whistleblower's disclosure to the CMC. This meeting was a debacle from the beginning. Prior to this meeting the QNU organiser tried to pressure the Whistleblower to change four paragraphs of her statement. The Whistleblower refused.
During this meeting the registered nurse stated that she believed the Public Interest Whistleblower suffered from a 'transference disorder ' and suggested that the Whistleblower should be forced to undergo a psychiatric assessment. It would eventually come to pass pass that it was the registered nurse who was forced to undergo a psychiatric assessment and was subsequently suspended for 2 years.
The registered nurse and the advanced assistant in nursing were permitted to be support people for each other at this meeting. They were not interviewed separately and were both present to hear the evidence of each other. Evidence was not recorded at this meeting and the transcriptions were a disgrace. HRM allowed these anomalies in evidence gathering to take place.
The Public Interest Whistleblower was removed from the unit (read 7.30 Report on right ) by Queensland Health's District Manager.
The two abusers remained in the mental health unit for a further two months.
The registered nurse was then rotated to work in all houses at Eventide, Brighton until she was finally interviewed by Queensland Police Service ( QPS) the following year in May 2005; almost 10 months after the PID to the CMC in July 2004.
Almost immediately after this QPS interview the registered nurse was suspended and later dismissed.
This email was sent to the Public Interest Whistleblower by mistake ( it was intended for the Executive Director of Nursing, Eventide ), shortly after her Public Interest Disclosure (PID ) to the Crime and Misconduct Commission ( CMC ) in July 2004. This email below was included in the submission by the Public Interest Whistleblower to the Queensland Public Hospitals Commission of Inquiry. This submission was written at the request of the Office of the Public Advocate, so is therefore a public document. Deceit and deception from the very beginning. This case was a debacle from beginning to end. More documented evidence of the disgrace that is claimed to be a reporting system, will be posted shortly.
