Bahamas: NOT SHOWING UP: Healthcare workers on NP and GB stage sickout; services impacted by worker shortage

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Services at Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) and Grand Bahama Health Services (GBHS) were impacted from 8am yesterday after several employees called in sick from both institutions.

As a result of the sickout, the Public Hospitals Authority (PHA) had to warn the public to expect delays in accessing services at those institutions or, where possible, to access services at a later date.

In a statement on the matter, the PHA said PMH Laboratory Services, Radiology and Diagnostics had staff shortages, resulting in delays in services.

At Rand Memorial Hospital, Laboratory Services and Phlebotomy Services also had limited staff and blood donation services had to be suspended.
