Nursing care reform part 3: the shadow sides of the care system

Undesirable developments through a systematic excavation of an epoch-making achievement


  • Rip through systematic classifications, and the procedure was excessively long care money ratings.
  • Fraud on a patient by under-supply in the so-called “homes” and illegal nursing home operating communities in the so-called “inclusive disabled living”
  • Austrickserei and rip off the members care through disproportionate contributions and deductibles for outpatient care services, and external forms of Care.
  • State egoistic abuse the helplessness of needy people for the achievement of budget discipline and economic growth. People would go down the drain, it is the “law of the jungle applies”. This is Economism at the expense of the Weakest members of society, destroying lives and costs lives.

NR-Abg Dr. Franz-Joseph Huainigg, ÖVP speaker for people with disabilities, presented in the three weeks leading up to the no-choice on 28.09.2008, at its Homepage 21 positions, demands and requests to the disability policy.

Item 8: care of the money in cash! ... [Part 3] (original text see below)

The shadow sides of the current care system:

  1. Rip through systematic classifications in many tens of thousands of cases. About 70% of the actions for upgrading success, which is a proof of the shameful and unlawful intention that stands behind it. A majority of the least promoted but, for now, until these degrading appeal.
  2. Rip-off by excessive length of judicial proceedings in the case of PG - ratings and Upgradings, to many dependants have died, and the PG - eligible, what are the maintenance services provided already, for months or for years, mostly on the demand of the due to you money without.
  3. Fraud on a patient by so-called “homes”, when only about one to two hours daily of direct assistance to the “occupant” for the “warm-instead of-clean” (and not always) is spent handling, although according to the highest care levels (PG 5 through 7) need for support in at least six hours (up to 24 hours) is determined daily by the decision and was granted! To the Affected for the home costs are, first, their savings will be expropriated and, so far, also against the nationals regressed (in some Federal change still).
  4. Semblance of normality by so-called “inclusive communities”, but the fact is, professional fraud, if for highest care needs with the payers will be charged, this care and performance, but may not be provided to, wants to, or legally not even done. This is because of maintenance, care and structural deficiencies of the illegal nursing home operations will take place under the promotion, supervision, connivance and coverage by country Supervisory authorities. Whoever fights against it, must reckon with existential destruction.
  5. Austrickserei by misuse of the system of care-service providers: For A 10 % performance coverage of a required 24-hour care is almost bagged the whole care of the money. Of the countries of a multiple of the maintenance money will be spent as a care subsidy to the productive maintenance of the Quasi-care monopoly. More than half of the total public expenses is eaten by a gigantic bureaucratic Monster.
  6. Rip-off by yourself keep on the rehab and nursing auxiliaries. Unfair Fees for day-care centres, Short-term placements (in Stmk. even for school attendance) in a total imbalance, always to the detriment of those who provide the care, for the most part, the care-giving family members.
  7. Political ignorance by Not making the best use of maintenance money and not cover the aid requirements, even if no inherent resource (more) is present. It is rebels of the notorious Support in the plenary series, and the offices may be too little aware of the fact that the gap must always be of someone with a life of “paid”. In tens of thousands of cases, it actually costs people's lives!
  8. Accuracy of “budget discipline”: To meet the stability criteria, it is there, strapped to the belts, where the least resistance is to be expected, it meets the need of care and assistance! A solidarity-based System has been prevented, and the deck needs denied to the end of AIDS, not only existing own resources in accordance with the “welfare principle”, but also, if someone has absolutely no (more).

This list does not claim to be complete.

What is the care brings money to the Affected? Self-determination and choice! The Austrian care allowance system is a milestone of Austrian social policy. Affected get the money in Hand and can decide who will look after them, when, where, how. Therefore, the care should remain money as money performance received no benefits in kind can be converted, as it is requested from the SPÖ. This would result in strong relationships of dependence.
On 1. In July of 1993, 15 years ago, so have to be taken into the care of money-the law in force. Currently, there are around 400,000 care allowance Recipients. In view of the demographic development, we urgently need a further development of the system, in order to secure this for the future. Sense this is a care, in my view, the Fund, as Vice-Chancellor Molterer is proposing. But you will read more tomorrow! Before the elections, on 28. September should be decided on an increase of care allowance: cash benefits are increased on a sliding scale. The care of money of levels one and two will be increased by four percent, that of the steps three to five to five percent, and that levels six and seven to six percent. In addition, people with dementia persons is taken into account in the classification of a hardship allowance. Severely disabled children and young people up to the age of seven will be awarded an additional lump sum value of 50 hours, up to 15. Age 75 Hours. Also, an increase in the funding for the 24-hour care at home, as well as the General elimination of the asset limits in this area were agreed. In order important demands of the ÖVP can be implemented!


Again and again, the care allowance, the allegation of abuse. This is entitled?

What further developments, it needs the care of money system? It is in view of the demographic development in its current Form continues to be financially viable?

Can and in-kind services to Supplement the care allowance system?
