ROBINA HOSPITAL – QUEENSLAND GOVERNMENT HOSPITAL: Forcedly removed without any explanation.

I’ve been forcedly removed by two nurses, one on my right and one on my left. Walked out the hospital as a dangerous person, a mad person, a criminal.

Why?

Because the day before during a debrief with a supervisor, despite my initial refuse to disclose my emotional state (Italians can be pretty expressionist when they free their emotional sphere), since the supervisor (a nurse from Robina Hospital) has insisted on the importance of open up during debrief meetings, I’ve decided to drop my defences and let my train of thoughts free to run outside my mouth.

Idiot me. I’ve always thought (and I was taught) that the debrief session is an important moment to let the tension go, ask for a help, recognise any possible distress… HOWEVER…

The Collins British Dictionary define debrief as “obtain information (from someone) at the end of a mission” and Merriam-Webster describe debrief as follow: to interrogate (someone, such as a pilot) usually upon return (as from a mission) in order to obtain useful information (e.g. The hostages were later debriefed by police).

I’ll never ever disclose my personal opinion in Australia, I’ll never point out mistakes done by Australian nurses within a Government Public Hospital.

NEVERTHELESS TO DISCLOSE INFORMATION RELEASED DURING A DEBRIEF SESSION TO THIRD PARTIES IS A BIG BREACH INTO CONFIDENTIALITY, PRIVACY AND INFORMATION PROTECTION.

MOREOVER NOT TO DISCUSS FURTHER ACTION (CONSEQUENT ILLEGITIMATE DIFFUSION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION) WITH THE CONSUMER/STUDENT NURSE IS A INFRINGEMENTS OF A NUMBER OF LAWS,M RULES, POLICES AND PROCEDURES.

TAFE HAS DONE NOTHING BUT BEING MISLEADING AND OFFENSIVE, WHEN THE RIGHT PROCEDURE SHOULD BE, SCHEDULE A MEETING IN A TIMELY MANNER, DISCUSS THE ISSUE WITH THE STUDENT, EXPLAIN THE MISTAKE (WHENEVER THERE IS A MISTAKE) AND WARN THE STUDENT A FIRST TIME.

FORCED REMOTION ISN’T A PROCEDURE, BUT SIMPLY THE CLEAR MANIFESTATION OF THE IGNORANCE AND NARROW MINDED RACIST ATTITUDE OF MOST OF THE INSTITUTIONS IN THIS COUNTRY.
