    You're not making an idiot of yourself. The hospital is making an idiot of itself, but that's not your fault. You need help, not to take the blame of appalling health care onto yourself. Let your psyche fix it. It's what he's doing. The frustration is understandable though. It's ridiculous.

    All in favour of packing VP and sending her to Ffrenchie? Shipping crate might work, George Of The Jungle-like..
    Might need a shipping crate - I don't want to even think about what angry VP might be like.
    Ffrenchie lots of hugs from me and I hope that psych finds something soon.

    Can we all write to your local mp? I'm sure that enough people on BubHub would email on your behalf and make them sort it out.

    Ok that's it. This is totally unacceptable. Time to draw a line in the sand and say "I am an Australian. You have 24 hours to get over this pathetic border crap and get me a spot in in-house treatment, or I will go public. Just in time for the Federal election. No negotiations."

    I know it is tough but if you have to go through this incredibly $hithouse and stressful passing of the buck this is the best time for it. Federal Election time.
    Your local MP is National-Liberal. The state Government, responsible for healthcare is National-Liberal too I believe. Your local Federal member won't want this going unresolved/public as it will screw his chances of getting re-elected.

    Contact your local member of Federal Parliament immediately. Or perhaps have your hubby do it, he can add commentary about how worried he is about the mother of his kids.

    - recommend your hubby keeps phoning until he gets through. You don't know how often the web forms will be checked.

    If you get pushback from your local member tell him you will lodge a complaint with the QLD Health Quality and Complaints Commission and that you will pass a copy of the complaint to the Federal minister for Mental health and Ageing (Labour would love to stick it to the Libs... Your local member would be aware of this).

    - HQCC http://complaints.qld.gov.au/?tabid=59
    - Federal minister for mental health and ageing:

    Hang in there Frenchie. You can do this.

    I admire you all for sticking up for frenchie, and going to her local member might help and get her a bed. But my fear for her is that she'll then be known as the 'political patient'. Which won't help her (experience tells me this).

    Also, waiting for beds is common, we've had people in our ED for 72 hours or more waiting for beds, people who are a danger to themselves and others. I'm not trying to minimise frenchies problems, but clinically she would not be priority, plus, she has a bed, people in the ED would be prioritised first.

    The system is not perfect, far from it. If you all really want to help petition your local members, demand change, because unfortunately frenchies situation is not uncommon.
