Domestic violence victims in regional Australia waiting for injury assessment, former practitioner says
from ABC News
A former forensic nurse examiner from regional Victoria has raised concerns about the resourcing of practitioners who assess domestic violence victims. The worker, who used to be on the on-call roster of forensic nurse examiners in regional Victoria, said there were not enough practitioners available at times, leaving victims waiting to be checked. According to Victoria Police, in one recent Echuca case, a practitioner was unavailable to see a victim for eight hours.
