GARTH DANIELS - Thomas Embling - inside Argyle

Garth Daniels is in a dangerous place...Garth Daniels has never stood in a witness box yet is unable to prevent being imprisoned in Victoria's dreaded jail... because that is what Thomas Embling Forensic Hospital is a dentention centre for those mentally impaired who have been through the judical process and found guilty of a criminal offence.

NO EMERGENCY FACILITIES exist at this "hospital", no operating theatres, the only specialists located here it seems are psychiatrists, and; those medical registrars in hospital based psychiatric training. Thomas Embling Forensic Hospital is surrounded by ten metre high fences more akin to prison and a dentention centre...

Within the ten metre high fence are other caged units including acute ward known as Argyle, also surrounded by a wired cage. A prison within a prison...housing fourteen residents. Further within its confines are found the rooms for solitary confinement.

Garth Daniels has no crime and no sentence against him yet he still languishes in Thomas Embling Forensic Hospital's Argyle Ward.

For the past five days Garth has been held in solitary confinement. To the parents of Garth Daniels political desenters and terrorists in this beautiful country of Australia are accorded more rights...unlike the former Apartheid South Africa. Why?

Garth Daniels has not self harmed or been a threat to the community. In fact Garth admitted himself to Frankston Hospital on the advice of his treating physicians because the drug which had been prescribed for him in injection form was causing him excruciating bodily harm.

Why? Why is it that Garth Daniels is considered dangerous! Garth Daniels has not committed any crime let alone murder yet he has now been held prisoner for 365 days.

The Clinical Director of Thomas Embling Forensic Hospital(sic)is Dr. Maurice Magner from South Africa, who refuses to meet with the Daniels' family informing them that they are too emotionally charged.

GARTH DANIELS - Victorian Institute of Forensic Mental Health(sic) - Thomas Embling Forensic Hospital - unplugged.

"The psychiatric profession has failed to advocate adequately for better mental health resoucing and human rights protection of those subject to Community Treatment Orders."
Guvant Patel. Australas Psychiatry, 2008 Oct;16(5):340-3

Garth Daniels must wonder what better health resources(sic)are required when he has been classified by a leading Psychiatric Registrar, Dr. Hemlata Ranga at Thomas Embling Forensic Hospital(sic)as an inmate under Section 16(3)b of the Mental Health Act 1986 (as amended).

What this Section 16 implies is that Garth Daniels has been before the courts and found guilty of an offence under either the Crimes Act, Sentencing Act or the Mental Impairment Act.

The facts are that Garth Daniels has NEVER BEEN FOUND GUILTY BEFORE THE COURTS OF ANY OFFENCE CRIMINAL OR OTHERWISE. It also raises the question of how a psychiatrist is able to assume a function of the Department of Justice. To suggest the classification is an error is fradulent as such a classification is defined by Legislation of the Parliament of this State of Victoria.

What is not noted is that Garth Daniels was under a Community Treatment Order and voluntarily admitted himself to Frankston Hospital Mental Health Service advising that the prescription injections given to him were causing distressing symptoms...which included the inability to sleep more than three hours in any twenty four. On that day 28 January 2011 Garth Daniels found himslf put into isolation and transferred to Thomas Embling on 14 February 2011.

There is the issue of human rights protection of Garth Daniels which it seems is totally ignored. Garth Daniels has been bashed by fellow inmates, been placed in isolation amidst allegations of assault on staff, and; for his own protection from fellow "patients". Notwithstanding the former Garth Daniels has also sufffered not inspite of the drugs but because of the prescription iatrogenic effect.

Garth Daniels rights under the Mental Health Act and the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act has been eroded by Dr. Hemlata Ranga. Because Garth Daniels is now classified as an involuntary appears Dr. Hemlata's assumption is that experimental doses and combinations of prescription drugs may proceed carte-blanche.

The consequences of which is that Garth Daniels continues to suffer debilitating bodily effects of the current prescriptions...And, is intimidated by the psychiatrist who refuses to acknowledge his concerns...or any adverse drug reactions.

According to information from the Chief Psyciatrist Dr. Ruth Vine,Dr.Douglas Bell, Assistant Clinical Director (inpatients and prison operatons) at Thomas Embling supervised Dr. Ranga, who is ultimately responsible for the treatment of Garth Daniels.

Dr. Douglas Bell has been on leave from December 2011 and only due to return in June 2012. Dr. Hemlata Ranga has been treating Garth Daniels since 14 February is now 2012. Garth Daniels continues to suffer under the treatment of Dr. Hemlata Ranga...

The Clinical Director, Dr. Maurice Magner refuses to intervene merely advising that the Daniels'family concerns have been communicated to the "treating team". And, that Mr. Daniels sen. is too emotionally charged so refuses to meet with him. Thomas Embling boast best practice... makes one wonder why Garth Daniels is still not free...
