    The Bay of Plenty DHB failed to care for a young man requiring mental health services, who died

    The Bay of Plenty DHB failed to care for a young man requiring mental health services, who died


    That's the key finding from a review, after the man was admitted to a mental health ward for two nights - but didn't receive any psychiatric support then or after his stay.

    Deputy Health and Disability Commissioner Kevin Allan's recommended the DHB review patient discharge processes from the facility.

    He's also recommended patients should see a psychiatrist every three months.
