    The National Party's Health spokesperson has condemned the early morning discharge of elderly patients from District Health Boards - DHBs

    The National Party's Health spokesperson has condemned the early morning discharge of elderly patients from District Health Boards - DHBs


    More than 150 patients over the age of 80 were discharged from hospital between 1 and 8 in the morning in January alone.

    The problem is being blamed on a lack of beds and management matters.

    Dr Shane Reti says it's unacceptable.

    Dr Reti says says families may be unable to prepare for those being discharged so early.
