Inniss raps violence

Violence in Barbados’ health care institutions will not be tolerated.
Minister of Health Donville Inniss sent this clear message last Friday as he addressed the launch of the newly-formed Steering Committee on Violence in Primary Health Care Institutions at the ministry’s headquarters at the Frank Walcott Building in Culloden Road, St Michael.
In explaining the rationale for the committee’s formation, Inniss said that it was a response to concerns expressed by staff at the island’s polyclinics about the incidence of violence in their workplace.
He acknowledged that similar challenges faced the entire health care system as a result of aggressive, violent behaviour and unbecoming attitudes on the part of some in society, and stressed that he was committed to zero tolerance of violence in health care institutions. (BGIS/SP)
