Miscellaneous comments

We wouldn’t like this bloke’s job, Cameron Dick, the Queensland Minister for Health’s job, trying to convince “the people” that Queensland’s hospitals are “safe,” in the face of a report that has emerged claiming that, in these hospitals, “72 per cent of the 7613 surgical patient death between July 2007 and June 2016 were considered PREVENTABLE!” – see this article.

And in the face of these estimates on the Australia wide picture:-

But he has soldiered on regardless, telling the people, “We have a strong safety regime in place, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be stronger.”

Apparently, he has plans to include private hospitals in more reporting requirements as they “are excluded from a number of reporting requirements,” at present.

Good luck with this Mr Dick! In our experience private hospitals like Ramsay private hospitals don’t feel answerable to anybody about anything.
