Alexander Maconochie Centre—drugs (Question No 1837)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Corrections and Justice Health, upon notice, on 21 September 2018:

What is the total number of drug overdoses in the Alexander Maconochie Centre and what is the breakdown for each financial year since 2015-16 by (a) gender and (b) month.

Mr Rattenbury: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

All personal health information, including if a detainee has overdosed on medication or illicit substances, is maintained in their individual clinical record. Medical information is subject to privacy provisions and therefore is not available for release.

Canberra Health Services maintains clinical records for all patients, aggregated data on the number of drug overdoses at the Alexander Maconochie Centre is not separately collected. Further, "overdose" is difficult to quantify with significant variation related to such factors as:

*

the significance of outcome from no impact to death,

*

whether the action was intentional or unintentional,

*

whether drug was prescribed or illicit.

(2) What is the daily rate charged to the ACT Government for accommodating these inmates for each of these instances.
