Category: Harm to Staff

I write in response to your Official Information Act request, dated 01 March 2019. You requested the following information:

• Any figures you have got about the amount of violence in the hospital emergency department, including trends.

• What does the DHB believe is the reason for the violence, and what are the results: injury to hospital staff and other patients, including figures please?

• What is being done – there is a suggestion in the latest DHB minutes of better cameras.

• Has a regional working group been established on this topic, and what is it doing about it?


Our response is attached
