VHA saddened by doctor tragedy

Posted 28 June 2017

The Victorian Healthcare Association is greatly saddened by the death of Dr Patrick Pritzwald-Stegmann, who died yesterday after an incident at Box Hill hospital.

This is a terrible reminder of the importance of eradicating workplace violence and aggression in our health services.
