Re: Breaching basic Kiwi rights?

Deborah from Masterton District

Does anyone else have concerns about $100 vouchers being offered to 'get the jab' especially when in the current economic climate, $100 will fill hungry tummies, even if just for a few days?

On a day to day basis ALL Health Care Professionals practice according to the Health and Disability Commissioner (Code of Health and Disability Services Consumers' Rights) Regulations 1996.

Right 2
Every consumer has the right to be free from discrimination, coercion, harassment, and sexual, financial or other exploitation.

Whether you are double vaxxed or not, surely there needs to be a conversation about the future of health care ethics in NZ when practitioners and organisations can pick and chose what rights they think should be upheld when financial reward is being proffered.

There has to be a better way to protect our healthcare workers and ourselves from loss of basic Kiwi rights.

Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

This week we feature a picture from Louise Thomas, who has been to Stewart Island.

"You shall not pass!" she said defiantly standing her ground in the middle of the track. "You can however, sidle past while I stand on this stump." How can something so small be so completely unafraid of the world? South Island robin/kakaruwai (Petroica australis), Ulva Island, 7 January. I guess that makes it P. a. rakiura.
