Rest home failings

From The Panel, 4:09 pm on 31 May 2018

The NZ Herald today reports on the family who found maggots in the wounds of their elderly father who was being cared for at the Pukekohe Palms Lifecare facility.

The family received an apology but it's raised questions about the care received at rest homes.

The panelists weigh in on where the failings are coming from.
