More Abuse Reports Surface At Oakden

Two new claims of abuse at the embattled Oakden aged care home are being checked out by police.

It's alleged a staff member used excessive force to stop a resident passing through a door last week.

A patient and a fellow staff member reported the incident to management.

While on Tuesday another was reported for allegedly using "unnecessary force" on Tuesday.

The mental health facility is due for closure within weeks.

It followsr a report issued by Chief Psychiatrist Aaron Groves that detailed a number of glaring failures in care and cover-ups over several years.

25 staff have now been reported to the national health regulator over issues at the home and 11 have been stood down while SA Health investigates.

The Opposition is calling for security guards to be deployed to the facility to ensure the safety of patients.
