Statistics on seclusion
The request was successful.
From: Alex Harris
Dear Counties Manukau District Health Board,
I would like to request the following information under the OIA:
* The number of mental health patients currently detained in seclusion units
* How long each has been detained for. I'm happy for this to be aggregated into bands (e.g. less than one month, 1 - 3 months, 3 - 6 months, 6 months - 1 year and so on) in order to protect privacy. If this would result in a refusal for substantial collation and research because there are more than a hundred such detainees, I am happy to limit the statistics to those detained for more than six months.
I would prefer to receive an electronic response. Queries about
this request will be automatically forwarded to me by the
With regards to s12 of the OIA, I am an NZ citizen and in NZ.
