How it unfolded:
* On July 11 this year, 69 high-care residents at Earle Haven were left effectively homeless when the Nerang centre ceased trading.
* The closure came as a result of a pay dispute between the owner of the home, People Care, and HelpStreet, which managed the residential care facilities.
* The owner of People Care, Arthur Miller, and HelpStreet's global chief executive, Kris Bunker, have argued about who was at fault for the resulting crisis.
* Mr Bunker, who lives in the UK, has said that on July 10, he suggested Mr Miller pay $3 million to resolve their dispute and that he wanted half by midday the following day.
* Queensland authorities organised a "mass casualty action plan" after 2pm on July 11 when paramedics were called to the facility to help the residents.
The inquiries into this incident:
* Mr Miller and Mr Bunker, along with others involved in the facility have given evidence into the closure at a royal commission into aged care which recently sat in Brisbane.
* A Queensland parliamentary inquiry is also investigating the quality and safety of aged care at Earle Haven.
* Mr Miller was expected to give evidence on Wednesday but was unable to appear for medical reasons. He will instead appear next week.
Is it a canary in the coal mine?:
* In the wake of Earle Haven's closure, industry peak body Leading Age Services Australia said aged-care facilities across Australia are at "risk of failure" without adequate federal funding.
