Thank you for the informative answer.
I am only confused what the ombudsman is. Is that an organisation? Where exactly do I complain to? Also, what will be the consequences of the complain, how exactly would they be punished?What exactly should the complain include?
The whole point of her staying in the mental health hospital is that she wouldn't be able to self harm or commit suicide again. I am very worried for her safety and I believe she isn't any safer there than if she was at home. I have an appointment on 22nd of July to discuss her progress. Would I have the right to sign her out or do they have the right to keep her as long as they want? If they can't keep her safe from further harm what is the point in keeping her longer?
Once again, thank you.
The doctors wanted to help so she got sent to the mental health ward. We don't want them to get in trouble, so maybe the complaint isn't a good idea? We would just like to take her out so is that possible without causing any trouble? They seem to be trying because she was sent for a CBT to a local hospital. We just want as much help for her as possible, not to complain.
We would like to take her home on the 22nd. Can they object?
