A nurse who continues to appear to work in elderly care homes with symptoms of Covid-19 has been referred to an anti-corruption agency in Queensland.
The nurse continued to work at the North Rockhampton Nursing Center when she was ill but before she received the results of the test.
He was suspended while the investigation was taking place and is now in solitary confinement.
However, the health department also referred him to the Crime and Corruption Commission for alleged violations of the directives of the chief health officers.
“Our focus remains on controlling Covid-19 and reducing its spread and protecting residents and staff of the North Rockhampton Care Center, and the community, from infection,” he said.
“The most important thing is that every Queensland citizen knows that if they have symptoms, they must immediately be tested and stay home until the test is returned.”
The Department is finalizing terms and references for external investigations.
The initial test for all occupants and staff is negative. The second round of tests was carried out and the results were negative. Other results will be released on Saturday.
A quick response unit of 26 nurses was sent to Rockhampton to treat affected staff and residents who were in isolation and facing more tests.
