Is it really fair to discharge a mentally depressed person from hospital who has tried to harm himself in a lethal way? No, not all, but recently a junior doctor without properly reading a suicidal note did the same. He discharged a severely-depressed man without noting his suicide note.
His failure has been noted down by a coroner, who has highlighted the mater for further assistance. According to investigations, it was found that Dr. Thi Nguyen discharged Damian Kay, 38, from the Lyell McEwin hospital in northern Adelaide in September 2010, despite the fact that he was suffering from severe depression and he tried to harm him in a cruel way. There are 100% chances then he will try for it once again whenever he gets the chance.
Mr. Kay lost his wife and two children in 2005. His wife, while trying to flee from the Eyre Peninsula bushfire near Port Lincoln, hit the car into a tree and died on the spot. Since then, Damian Kay was depressed.
After finding the suicide letter, police brought Mr. Kay to the hospital. According to Coroner Mark Johns, Dr. Nguyen made a number of omissions. He not only discharged him without knowing the severity of his depression levels, but he didn't even take the advice of a senior doctor for taking this step.
