Qualified nurses as 24 hour live-in Carers in clients homes

There is a private organisation that aims to raise the standard of care services in Australia to meet, and exceed, NDIS and Service Provider requirements, leveraging highly skilled nurses on fixed term visas. 

It is registered with the Department of Home Affairs (DOHA) as a standard business sponsor. This registration enables us to address labour shortages by bringing in genuinely skilled workers to address local skills shortages in the disability sector.  This benefits the local disability care sector and the skilled migrants, who earn orders of magnitude more than in their home countries. We specialise in providing Temporary Short-Term Stream visas (subclass 482) to qualified Nurses, who meet the strict visa requirements.

We believe that qualified nurses have superior experience, expertise and skills to offer the highest standard of care to high needs users of disability supports.  Unfortunately,  NDIS and other Service Provider rates make use of locally qualified nurses unsustainable, as a general rule, however, our qualified nurses provide these services at existing NDIS and other Service Provider rates.
Our nurses are educated and trained to the highest standards and there is a desire amongst them to obtain foreign work experience, both for financial reasons and to gain international experience.
 
The visa stream the organisation proposes to use does not permanently relocate nurses, as the visas are fixed term.

    People with disabilities are (in the main) NOT sick, therefore having RNs as live-in carers is highly inappropriate. In general, individuals and family members (mothers and fathers) learn to become competent in managing tasks such as gastrostomy tubes, catheterisation and suction; if individuals and families are able to manage these tasks for their loved ones at home, then why is an RN necessary? The NDIS purposefully aims to de-medicalise people with disabilities, and to move them out of nursing homes (which are typically managed by RNs) where possible. I completely disagree with this 'medical' approach, it sounds more like a scheme to promote professional role and scope of practice, rather than a scheme to reduce hospital stays.
