Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2008 Week 2 Hansard (4 March) . . Page.. 422..
MS GALLAGHER (continuing):
identified a delay in securing the requisite chemotherapy supplies due to a stock ordering mistake by staff. As a result, a revised system of communication and ordering has been put in place. I am further advised there have been no further instances of this type of delay and this was a result of an ordering mistake, not of any funding or supply shortfall issues.
I am also advised that, notwithstanding the inconvenience to the patient, there was no adverse clinical outcome because of the delay. I can also advise that I have no record of any correspondence from this family, and I have no record of any correspondence from Mrs Burke, to which to respond. But I will arrange today for a full debrief for the family. I apologise, again, if I undertook to get back to the family, but I never had any details of how to get back to them. But if I undertook to get back to that family and I did not, I will arrange today for a full briefing for that family.
