Sir Everton back home
Medical professionals at a private health facility said they did not turn a blind eye to cricket legend Sir Everton Weekes when he sought attention there recently, as has been suggested on social media.
An official of the private institution where Sir Everton was taken accompanied by a friend, said they did not have a medical record on him, noting the absence of any history could have put him at risk, as well as the hospital.
“We also do not have an Accident and Emergency, so we cannot deal with emergencies,” he said.
The source was responding to a recent social media post which was widely circulated, stating that Sir Everton, 94, had collapsed at his home and was unable to move. He had to be rushed by ambulance to the private facility but after some time had passed, he was transferred to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. (CM)
