There is a shortage of staff at the Suddie Public Hospital. During the February sitting of the Regional Democratic Council, the statutory meeting reported that the medical institution was in need of a surgeon and a bone specialist as well as other medical staff.
These findings were disclosed by Chairman of the Health committee and PPP/ Councillor, Arnold Adams, who was at the time submitting a health report.
At the same time he was charged with providing an update on the Electro Cardiograph machine which was discovered missing last year. Findings from an inventory which have been established to probe the missing ECG machine is suggesting that more medical equipment may be unaccounted for.
Adams said that the high authority at the Suddie Public Hospital is claiming of not being facilitated with any information of when and who would have stolen the EGC machine. The matter has since gained the attention of the police.
It was brought to the attention of senior employees at the Suddie Administration that the ECG machine was discovered and reported missing in late October.
Meanwhile, in some of the medical outposts, especially those located in the remote sections of the Region, there is a reported bat infestation in those buildings.
The Suddie Public Hospital has since taken the position of refusing employees of the hospital be it doctor or staff, to park their vehicles in the hospital compound. They must now park outside the building. (Yannason Duncan)
