PNA in call over reporting system
20 Apr 2014 16:04
The Psychiatric Nurses Association has said a more efficient system must be put in place by the Health Minister and the Health Service Executive for reporting adverse incidents or deaths within the mental health system.
The PNA says it is extremely concerned that the premature discharge of patients, or delays in being admitted to psychiatric facilities, has led to people taking their own lives.
At its annual conference, the PNA had specifically highlighted the apparently high rate of suicide in one area; Carlow, Kilkenny, and south Tipperary.
The association identified 14 cases in 18 months.
