Ali Mau speaks with Dr Nigel Murray, Chief Executive, Waikato DHB to discuss to findings in the review released today.
Waikato DHB Chief Executive Dr Nigel Murray said: “The death of Nicky Stevens is a terrible tragedy and I would like to apologise most sincerely to Nicky’s family for the omissions in our leave processes while Nicky was in our care. Our management of leave was unsatisfactory, and I also acknowledge that the family would have valued greater collaboration.
The review found that while the standard of Nicky’s care was good, there were a number of opportunities for improvements to how the unit managed clients’ leave and how it involved families in their loved ones’ care.
