Call for DHB to release preliminary findings from patient death investigation


National Party health spokesman Dr Shane Reti says Counties Manukau DHB should release its preliminary findings into a patient's death at Middlemore Hospital this month. Reti said the DHB signalled it was carrying out an urgent investigation and releasing the findings would allow any recommendations to be implemented straight away. The Counties Manukau DHB had its last meeting on Thursday and will cease to exist from Friday under the Government's health reforms. That is despite the fact Counties Manukau DHB chairman Mark Gosche recently said he was expecting to receive more information on the case this week. This patient had a catastrophic medical event a few hours later at home and returned to the hospital emergency department.
