The woman who cared for Adelaide cerebral palsy sufferer Ann Marie Smith has faced the Supreme Court for the first time after pleading guilty to her manslaughter.
Rosa Maria Maione had her bail continued on Monday in a brief appearance with sentencing submissions set to start in December.
Prosecutors had previously flagged a bid to have her bail revoked but the matter was not raised.
Maione first entered her guilty plea to the unlawful killing in Adelaide Magistrates Court in July.
Police previously alleged Ms Smith died of serious criminal neglect and her death was preventable.
The 54-year-old passed away in hospital in April last year from septic shock, multiple organ failure, severe pressure sores and malnourishment.
She had been found to be living in squalid conditions in her own home, largely confined to a cane chair, while under the care of the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
In the period leading up to the death, Maione had worked as her carer.
As well as the SA police investigation, the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commissioner Graeme Head launched an independent inquiry by former Federal Court judge Alan Robertson, with his report last year essentially clearing the commission in how it exercised its regulatory functions.
Mr Robertson said on the question of whether it should have acted earlier to ban Maione, the commission had no information to take such action before Ms Smith’s death.Internet Explorer Channel Network
