THREE weeks ago the operating theatre at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope, had to be shut down for several violations by the Occupational Safety and Health Authority (OSHA). This was revealed yesterday by Idi Stuart, president of the Registered Nurses Association (TTRNA).
In a phone interview, Stuart told Newsday while the issue was not highlighted in the public domain, the association was waiting for the report from the OSH to bring it to the public’s attention.
However, he said, “The theatre was not only shut down due to the shortage of staff but the theatre was poorly maintained. It was extremely dirty.
