HOSPITAL —HIGH DEPENDENCY UNIT AND PAEDIATRIC INTENSIVE CARE UNIT
950. Hon PETER COLLIER to
the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:
I refer to the high dependency unit
and paediatric intensive care unit at Perth Children's Hospital.
(1) What is the bed capacity in each
opening, has either unit not operated at full bed capacity; and, if so, for how
many days and for what reason?
(3) For any
days in (2), were the remaining available beds fully occupied; and, if so, on
how many days?
(4) If yes to
(3), were any patients turned away from the respective units; and, if so, how
(5) If yes to
(3), were any operations at the hospital cancelled or delayed due to a lack of
bed capacity in either unit; and, if so, how many and what were the operations?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
I am advised that the information
requested by the honourable member will take some time to collate. I will
undertake to provide it to the member as soon as it is available.
