Petitioning Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Turnbull and 4 others

Remote Area Nurse Safety


0 have signed. Let’s get to 150,000.

Remote Area Nurses (RAN) are instrumental in delivering and improving access to healthcare in isolated communities across our expansive outback.  The role of the RAN encompasses the whole of life care, from antenate to end of life.  We operate far outside the metro area, which means we are on call after hours and usually expected to attend after hours emergencies as single responders. Since Christmas 2015 there have been two sexual assaults of RAN's and now the murder of our colleague in Fregon, South Australia. We are asking the Federal Health Minister, The Hon. Sussan Ley to abolish single nurse posts in Australia. And to assist in making it mandatory for two responders to attend all after hours call outs in Government, Indigenous Health Corporations and Not For Profit health centres across Australia.
This petition will be delivered to:
  • Prime Minister of Australia
    The Hon. Malcolm Turnbull MP
  • Senator for South Australia
    Skye Kakoschke-Moore
