JAMAICA: Jamaica's Health Sector Gets Six Ambulances From The EU

JAMAICA: Jamaica

RJR News / Health Minister Dr. Christopher Tufton has said the incident in November last year which resulted in a woman giving birth on sidewalk near the Chapelton Hospital in Clarendon, is an indication of the lack of responsiveness and the inability of the hospital to respond to challenges.      Dr. Tufton said the incident was an unfortunate lesson for the health sector that should never happen again.      He raised the issue in Clarendon on Thursday during the handing over ceremony for six ambulances to the regional health authorities donated by the European Union.      Dr. Tufton said health facilities should be in a position to respond to all situations. At the same time he lamented that there are too many challenges which prevent this from occurring.     "We have to move in a direction where we improve our infrastructure to respond, our personnel to respond and our overall capacity to deal with the challenges that we deal with as a country," he urged.  Shellion Mamdeen was turned away from the Chapelton Hospital and referred to the May Pen Hospital as she was deemed a high risk patient. She eventually gave birth on the sidewalk outside Chapelton Hospital.   In the meantime, the Health Minister said the donation of the ambulances, one of which will be given to the Chapleton Hospital, will go a far way in preventing a recurrence of the incident last year as it has given the hospitals the ability to respond and move persons from one institution to the next for the best quality care. "We took the strategic decision to increase our ability to provide better access to vital maternal and infant health care and our position is that no woman, and in fact, no user of our health care system should ever be subjected to this less that ideal situation," Mr. Tufton declared. An ambulance will be sent to the Alexandria Community Hospital, the Mandeville Regional, Annotto Bay and Savanna La Mar Hospitals and the St. Jago Park Health Centre.
