    Long Covid clinics across Australia are being inundated with requests for assessments from patients struggling with ongoing symptoms, an inquiry has heard. Doctors told the federal parliamentary inquiry into long and repeated coronavirus infections that they were struggling to keep up with demand as waitlists increased. At least 10 million Australians have been infected with Covid and it is estimated 3-5% will develop Long Covid at some point. “Our waitlist is increasing because what we’ve observed is that it can take some time for the recognition of post-Covid conditions, parti

    The study found that among doctors in private practice in Victoria, 20.5% experienced at least one complaint over the decade. Among doctors who were the subject of a complaint, 4.5% had four or more complaints, and this group accounted for 17.6% of all complaints to the Victorian Health Services Commissioner.

Doctors trained overseas had lower odds of being complaint-prone than those trained in Australia. Interventions to improve patient satisfacti

The Perth Coroner's Court on Wednesday heard a statement from Aishwarya's mother Prasitha Sasidharan, who described how she grew increasingly worried about her daughter while in the hospital waiting room. She approached staff five times while they were in the waiting room for almost two hours. "I feel li

    The study found that of the 60 268 adverse incidents, falls were the most common event (36%), followed by behaviour-related events (33%), other impacts and injuries (22%) and medication errors (9%). The number of adverse incidents per resident ranged from 0 (42%) to 171, with a median of 2. Women and residents with low care needs were significantly less likely to adverse incidents compared with men and residents with high care needs respectively. This study demonstrates that data already collected within electronic management systems can provide crucial baseline information about the risk
