I have no complaints about the hospital or my treatment in the hospital.
Reading the report in the local paper I was surprised that the coroner found fault with the hospital. Mental health patients and drug overdose patients (and many of the mental health patients do suffer from drug abuse issues due to, or because of, their mental illness), have nowhere to go. The hospital can not assist patients who leave the hospital, no matter how ill they are, the same as Ambulance officers cannot take anyone to hospital if they refuse to go to hospital. To have someone sectioned they need to be held by police (the only people permitted to hold anyone against their will), and they need to have a GP and a JP, or magistrate, to certify that they are a danger to themselves or others.
Coroner's Inquest Findings here. I don't agree with this particular finding.
"Bradley went to the Gatton Hospital on three occasions in the early morning
before his death. He was treated for dehydration on the first occasion, but self
discharged himself. He returned twice, reporting that he had taken pills.
I find that the inaction of the staff at the Gatton Hospital, and in particular Nurse Lorenzen, when Bradley re-attended contributed to his death."
