MP: North Shore Hospital resembles refugee camp – 12 Mar 2008 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

The Waitemata District Health Board came under fire today as National MP Jonathan Coleman claimed the corridors of the North Shore Hospital resembled a refugee holding camp.

Sick, often elderly, patients lay on numbered makeshift trolleys in corridors waiting hours for beds, and the situation was at “disaster level”, Dr Coleman told a parliamentary health select committee today.

Looks like Cunliffe will have to sack another board, oh that’s right there aren’t too many cronies that need protecting from corruption allegations. This all looks rather terrible with winter approaching.

In response to questions over how the hospital would cope in winter, chief executive Dave Davies said he thought all large hospitals in New Zealand had the same concerns.

He said he could not guarantee that this winter would be better
