    Default Breach of Rights

    My aged mums doc practice upset her badly today.

    They've been trying to force her to have a cognitive test for ages, and threatened to write the NZTransport to take her license if she didn't go.

    So she asked me to come. Nurse refused to allow me to sit in, saying "we don't do that here" and threatened to refuse my mum if I didn't stay out - in full view of their Patient Rights poster.

    needless to say my mum is about to change doctors.

    She doesn't have dementia BTW....

    Good on you P. What an insensitive medical practice. When needed Support people are an integral part of visits and not just foreign languages

    Make sure you lay a complaint against them to the HDC.

    Agreed.

    I find most nurses are condescending no matter where one encounters them.

    Veterinarians the same.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Unsurprisingly, (no-one died) HDC flicked it back to the practice.
    The practice manager wrote saying she "absolutely refutes all allegations" and they "did nothing wrong" and the situation remains.

    Never mind, my mum has signed up with a new GPs place. Nurse practitioner there is nicer.

    Pathetic. Makes the case for carrying an audio recorder and keeping them accountable.

    Sounds like that practise manager has been taking lessons from Jacinda!
