Sexual assault complaints and sexual harassment complaints made by staff (2013-2017) Correction

Official information request details

We have recently reviewed the OIA response we provided to you in June 2018 and have determined that the question “The number of sexual assault complaints made by DHB staff against patients” has been misinterpreted by a staff member who read it as sexual abuse complaints made about staff by patients.
