Have your say on nursing homes
DUNDALK Senator Mary Moran is encouraging local people with family members in nursing homes to have their say on national standards for the care home sector.
She was speaking as HIQA launched a new public consultation on standards for nursing and residential care homes.
'The experience and advice of actual residents and staff are just as important as those of experts or HIQA managers. They are the people receiving the care and working at the frontlines, and their views and suggestions will be of great value in charting the way forward.
'I would strongly encourage people who are affected by this area to make their views known.
'The public consultation feedback form is available on the HIQA website, and interested parties have until September 24 to have their say.'
