President of the Association, Carmen Johnson, says the last count revealed that more than 100 nurses have been affected. She says the association is currently discussing whether to bring a claim against the government: The Association says between January and February this year, more than 160 nurses visited the staff clinic at Cornwall Regional with various complaints. These included respiratory problems, rashes, headache, loss of memory, weakness in the joints and high blood pressure. And the process has been started to change the protocol surrounding the recording and tracking of persons who have reported symptoms caused by the air quality problems at the Cornwall Regional Hospital. Health Minister Dr Christopher Tufton, announced a move aimed at gathering more information on these persons so that a clearer picture can be made of the effects.The issue has arisen since the increased reports of staff and patients suffering a wide variety of symptoms which they attribute to poor air quality at the hospital.
