    If they can't be trusted to honour the "No Junk Mail" sign on my letterbox, they certainly can't be trusted to look after other human beings.

    Hi, just wondering if my mother-in-law with Covid19 is dead or alive there? We can't contact you, I just heard on the ABC Insiders program that someone's mum there had not been fed for 3 days. You need to contact the relatives, and feed the sick

    - Doutta Galla requires a proper qualified chef who knows how to cook different meals and has taste to it - Cleanliness is far from it from this place- it requires to continuously be cleaned (7 days a week) by professional cleaners not just the staff that work there; the toilets are not cleaned, the floors are filthy due to food being dropped, liquid stains on the floors, the floors are sticky - Doutta Galla requires a manager who is a qualified nurse who understands the needs of the residents living there not a manager who thinks he knows everything but knows nothing as he has no skills or experience with public and in the industry. - More staff is needed to be employed !!!!! - There is not enough staff employed on the floors at all times – there are times when residents have needed assistance and no staff was there - This is an ongoing problem that Doutta Galla has 7 days a week
