Just back from attending the 13th NNDR conference in Bergen, I’ve picked up the OCC investigation into LB’s death (that came like a hammer blow a few weeks ago). This is something I naively hoped we could just say ‘Er, please bin it. It’s a pile of (harrowing) shite.’ It turns out we need to detail the inaccuracies in it. An awful, time consuming and beyond unacceptable task.
Tonight the tears started on p5. A summary of the complaint I made to Sloven after LB was admitted to the unit in March 2013. A summary of five of the points that the complaint made and the shonky responses to it. But there weren’t five points. There were six.
12.4.13 My email to the social care director: On 15.4.13, the Sloven complaints person sent me this email and I responded, the same day, again flagging up the sixth point. Prophetic words and dripping irony. I wasn’t listened to. The seriousness of the situation was not appreciated. I wasn’t listened to in making the complaint either. Clearly. And OCC deliberately didn’t listen in writing this craphole ‘report’ based on half truths and inaccuracies.
Which bit of ‘our beautiful son is dead because you arrogant, bullying, dismissive bastards refused to listen’ don’t you get? And why the fuck am I having to endure this soul destroying task?
