Teenager Corvan Hall seems to be in no mood to let his fight go away like anything. With the new Royal Children's Hospital battling shortage of beds, the teenager has come out to make sure that his plea reaches out to the authorities concerned. He is so unfortunate that his open heart surgery had to be postponed three times in a period of three weeks, just because of this reason.
However, it has been claimed by a 2010 Parliamentary Committee report that the unit would "reduce the number of patients being admitted into the general wards and also increase the hospital's total bed capacity by 28 beds".
It has been further explained that as of now, financial support for only 10 beds is available and rest can only be added with extra support. There are fears that in case funds are not timely provided, then the unit would not be able to take care of more patients.
However, Liberal health spokesman Jeremy Rockliff has come out to express disappointment over the attitude of Government towards the situation which is getting worrisome with time. A lot depends on federal funding about how things are going to be with patients in the time to come.
