EVERY DAY there are issues facing the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, which is a “virtual mess” and has a “nursing shortage of 66”. Former Minister of Health Jerome Walcott made this charge yesterday while speaking at the official opening of his Christ Church South constituency office on Maxwell Coast Road. While Minister of Health Donville Inniss was at a joint St James branch meeting hailing the ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP) for its improvements to health care in the island, Walcott suggested that the DLP had failed Barbadians in this area. “Has anything improved at the QEH? Are people still at the Accident & Emergency Department for two and three days? Two weeks ago not a sterilization machine in the Sterilization Department was working.
