"...The inquiry, to be led by Victoria's chief psychiatrist Ruth Vine, follows a report by The Age that exposed high rates of unexpected or unnatural deaths in mental health wards and raised serious questions about standards of care and allegations of cover-up.
Dr Vine told The Age in an interview in July that patients "had a very valid point" by raising concerns about the standard of toilet facilities in certain mental health wards.
''I agree, using pans, using bottles and paper cups and food on the floor [is unpleasant] but it is all meant to be about safety,'' Dr Vine said......
.....''Three patients have made complaints to me, which included one patient while in seclusion being denied toilet facilities (he was forced to urinate without a toilet) when he was first placed in seclusion there was a bowl of faecal matter on the floor and a glass of water that had been spat in,'' council director Isabell Collins wrote..."
I'm sure Victoria's Chief Psychiatrist might have a stronger term (than unpleasant) for the above if she had to experience it herself...and there's not much in those few lines that would fit a description of 'Health and SAFETY' either is there!
