Over 80,000 persons visited the Diamond Diagnostic Hospital for medical attention last year. However the institution continues to be plagued with many problems.
With this in mind, members of the Parliamentary Social Services Committee visited the hospital today to get a firsthand look at the operation.
During the visit, the parliamentary delegation was told about the shortage of medical supplies, problems with security and expired drugs among other issues.
But despite this, Chief Executive Officer, Kevin Malan said every effort is being made to provide quality health care to patients.
One of the major concerns of the staff was security as it relates to what they described as “bad behavior” from patients.
Committee member Indranie Chandarpaul urged the staff to work with what they have until something can be done to bring relief to them. She assured the staff that recommendations will be made, to address their issues. [Nickhail Jaundoo]
