No beds on Ward 10... again
By CECILY ASSON Thursday, July 26 2007
THE problem of overcrowding has once again reared its ugly head at San Fernando General Hosptial (SFGH). Yesterday, scores of patients were forced to occupy every available space at the wards and along corridors, some lying on stretchers or desks, or sitting on hard benches and straight chairs and wheel chairs as they waited several hours for the first available bed. It was a re-run of the overcrowding crisis that hit the wards seven weeks ago. Ward 10 yesterday morning was once more a chaotic sight. Relatives, patients and nurses complained that the line up for beds on Ward 10 began from as early as 8 am on Tuesday.
Vistabella resident Gene Thomas said she accompanied her friend David Brown to the hospital on Tuesday where they waited with scores of other persons for a bed. Brown was diagnosed with hypertension and was admitted to the ward but remained on a stretcher in the middle of the ward up to midday.
