No fathers allowed
Thursday, November 3 2011
THE EDITOR: This letter serves to underline my continuing disgust with the state of health care in Trinidad and Tobago. My issue is not with the fact that although I arrived at San Fernando General Hospital before 8 am on Friday (October 28), my ten-month-old son was not given a bed on the ward until just before 4 pm.
No, length of time for care is too common an issue for complaints to have any effect. My true issue stems from the policy of the paediatric ward of the hospital that while mothers can be with their children for 24 hours, a father can only visit between the hours of 8 am - 7 pm. When I asked whether I would be allowed to stay, if for any reason my wife could not, I was told that I would have to “find somebody else to stay with the baby.”
