PM Terrance Drew visits JNF General Hospital, Pogson Hospital; examines health facilities

Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis- Dr Terrance Drew, led a tour of the JNF General Hospital and examined the entire situation of the health facilities in the hospital. 

St Kitts and Nevis: Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis– Dr Terrance Drew, led a tour of the JNF General Hospital and examined the entire situation of the health facilities in the hospital. 

He stated that he visited JNF General Hospital earlier this evening as part of my tour and encountered a challenge that had to be rectified immediately.

There was a challenge in getting the bloodlines for the dialysis machines and so he thinks the staff quickly had to improvise and make sure that they dealt with the situation by changing up the shift in which people are given dialysis, and he also want to thank them for being innovative with respect to dealing with the challenge. 

Outlining various challenges, he mentioned that the haemodialysis bloodline system is a type of tubing system that connects a patient’s blood circulation to a dialyzer in the course of the dialysis treatment.

“We have been able to get in the bloodlines, which are the lines that are important to working the dialysis machine. That line we are talking about is what allows the blood to go out, go through the machine, and then come back into the patient, “PM Terrance replied in assurance. 

He added that they had resolved that to this moment, and we will ensure that the situation is continuously dealt with. So at this moment, operations are back to normal, patients are receiving their treatment, and he wish all the patients well.

He would like to express heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the nursing staff at the Haemodialysis Unit for their tremendous work and continued sacrifice in making sure that this life-saving treatment is available here for the people of St. Kitts and Nevis.

Apart from this, PM Terrance Drew also visited the Pogson Hospital in Sandy Point and was given a tour of the facilities. The nurses, staff and residents are pleased with the recent change made by our government to ensure that a medical doctor is available around the clock. This addition is a part of our government’s drive to improve medical care and the overall delivery of healthcare services in Sandy Point and surrounding communities.

“With me were the Director of Health Institutions within the Ministry of Health, Dr. Jenson Morton; Press Secretary, Mrs. Adelcia Connor-Ferlance; and H.E Kenneth Douglas, “said the prime minister.
