The continual whine about "patient privacy" needs to be superseded by safety concerns for the general population.
Sounds like the call of anti-gun person, "safety concerns of the whole" very dangerous ground, it is also very difficult for any health processional to determine if someone mentally ill is dangerous. If you lose your temper at work perhaps we could have cameras installed in your home for the safety of the community. We really do no want to give politicians the power this tool would give them.
Over my long life I've seen freedom slip away we do not want to lose all and yet we see people begging to give more power to government, sad.
