Garth Daniels : Deja Vu - Zyprexa-Guardianship-Incarceration & the Photographer


a picture is worth a thousand words
Who was it who said if you continue prescribing the same thing over and over again ...?
Above and below the extent of the Olanzapine prescribed for Garth.

now its just more of the same old same old

the Olanzapine ( Zyprexa Zydis) previously prescribed has now again been prescribed
...if you don't succeed just try and try again...


Associate Professor Paul Katz, Director of the Clinical Programme at Box Hill Hospital's Upton House has now lodged an application with the Victorian Civil And Administrative Tribunal to remove Garth's Power of Attorney (Medical Treatment) and Enduring Guardian.    Paul Katz has applied to have a Guardian appointed and to have Garth Daniels sent to a Secure Extended Care  Unit.(SECU).
