Patient Rights: There’s a call for action in the “baby tapping chest therapy” at National Women’s Hospital. Alliance Health Spokesperson, Phillida Bunkle, says it reveals problems with patient’s rights. She is calling for Health Minister Wyatt Creech to step in and address the issue. The “tapping” treatment has been linked to the deaths of five babies and brain damage to eight. The inquiry into the procedure found parents were never informed of the technique. Ms Bunkle says Mr Creech must do something as patient’s rights continue to get abused.
