[www.inewsguyana.com] – A man who doctors know little of continues to receive care at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) amid mounting calls for someone to come forward and identify him.

The GPHC has been, over the last five days, seeking the assistance of the public in identifying the unresponsive male patient who remains in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

According to a media release from the GPHC, the patient was referred from the Linden Hospital Complex on October 30 and has been unresponsive since admission.

Hospital sources told iNews this morning, “He is in the same condition and no one has come forward to identify him and he is on a ventilator.”

Information received by the Hospital is that the patient hails from No. 30 Village, Berbice and was taken to the Linden Hospital after a tree felling accident at Kwakwani.

“Since he came here, his condition has not improved and we are trying to find his relatives… all we got is that someone said he is from No. 30 village,” iNews was told.

The hospital source said the institution will keep him once he remains alive until someone comes to identify him.

“We have to keep him and still be trying. If his condition improves we will move him into the ward and keep working with him until he himself remembers who he is.”

All assurance was given that the patient will not be discharged without being positively identified. Anyone who may know him is asked to make contact with the GPHC.
