‘More nurses’ needed at QEH

PRESIDENT OF THE Barbados Nurses’ Association (BNA), Joannah Waterman, is calling for the nursing complement at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital to be increased.

Shortly after her installation as the new president at the BNA’s 80th annual general meeting, Waterman signalled to Minister of health John Boyce she would be agitating for an increase in nurses at the goverment’s health care institutions, as well as for improved working conditions and remuneration, during her term of office.

The minister was not present at the meeting at Accra Beach Hotel but Waterman nonetheless directed her remarks to him. 

“We are cognisant of the current economic climate . . . but as the largest, most mission-critical population in the health sector, we deserve to have our needs adequately addressed,” she said. (GC)
