This was in the Daily Telegraph which has a subscription paywall to access it so I typed quotes from the print newspaper which I bought today while I was in town


‘They need help to cope with their loss’

Miscarriage care - EVERY hospital in NSW has been ordered to treat women who lose children in pregnancy with greater compassion in an unprecedented directive issued by Health Minister Brad Hazzard.


"A 25 Year old woman's stillborn baby was mistakenly cremated before autopsy could be performed" - Liverpool Hospital.

"The woman was put in a ward alongside mums with their newborn babies while she was grieving for the loss of her child"

"I feel because my baby wasn't alive they didn't care about me or her, she said"


Health Minister Brad Hazzard received a complaint from Stella Pirko and the Minister sent a copy of the complaint to every private and public hospital in NSW



I sympathize with the new Health Minister, Brad Hazzard. He has an enormous job overcoming the disgraceful legacy of his "could care less" predecessor Jillian Skinner. He has a tough job, and I congratulate him on clamping down on doctors who use illegal drugs in their after hours leisure time ... telling them: "Get out of NSW Health"

A good news story for a change - ACT hospital is changing from paper system to electronic barcodes attempting to eliminate errors


How the ACT is eliminating hospital errors


New systems cross-reference patient with process.

ACT Health has embarked on a clinical systems transformation that will see patients electronically cross-referenced with pathology orders and medication at their bedside in an effort to eliminate errors at the point of care.

The territory's health directorate has completely overhauled how it interacts with patients to banish the paper-based records and processes that are the traditional causes of mixed up blood samples and medications in hospitals.

Despite having made a significant effort to strengthen these processes in recent years, ACT Health wasn't getting the reduction in avoidable errors it wanted.

Unfortunately the bad news continues ...

This is an older story I missed but still important today because I don't believe this hospital in the Central West has sorted itself out. It was and I believe still is the worst Public hospital in NSW. Try to avoid getting medical attention there if you live in the area, book in at Bathurst, Dubbo, Katoomba for operations and prolonged stays, anywhere but Orange

Orange Public hospital is a place of employment, medical quality comes in at a very poor second. If you have no other option but to attend this shambles of a so-called hospital, get in and get out quick


Orange community rallies behind hospital staff over concerns about friction with management
ABC Central West


By Gavin Coote and Melanie Pearce
Posted 7 Jun 2016, 4:57pm

Several hundred residents in central west New South Wales have called on the State Government to address concerns about management at Orange hospital.

Last month, the Orange Health Service Medical Staff Council expressed a vote of no-confidence in the Western NSW Local Health District following a review into a senior doctor.
