Posted September 12, Ms Young had been an involuntary patient at the hospital and suffered from paranoid schizophrenia. She was last seen walking naked into bushland on the outskirts of Broken Hill on the afternoon of April 22, Ms O'Sullivan said that the unforgiving terrain, combined with no water supply, and the fact Ms Young was naked on a cold night would have been factors in her death. The coroner recommended that funding be requested for an additional Aboriginal health liaison officer at the Broken Hill Hospital to be rostered to work weekends and to be on call overnight. It was raised numerous times during the inquest that if one had been available when Ms Young first presented to hospital, that treatment for her psychosis could have started earlier.
