Pat’s passing comes shortly after her aged care facility came out of a month-long lockdown.

“Finally able to visit my mum in her aged care facility after it was in lockdown for a month. RAT, PPE, sign forms, and we can see our ma,” she shared on Instagram back in February.

“Thank you SO MUCH to all the staff, and all the carers, nurses, doctors who have to wear this get up every single day!! #morepayforournurses.”
