Cornwall Regional Hospital in St. James is reporting a reduction in gunshot cases since the State of Emergency was declared in St. James on January 18.

In an interview with RJR News on Wednesday morning, Dr. Delroy Fray, Clinical Coordinator at the hospital, said the decline has been significant.

There were 35 cases of gunshot wounds treated at the hospital during the month of December, and from January 1-17, the day before the State of Emergency was declared, there had been 21 cases, he said.

In contrast, he revealed that since the imposition of the State of Emergency, which was declared on the 18th, there have six cases of gunshot wounds, all related to a single incident.

Staff morale at the hospital had significantly improved as a result of the reduction in gunshot cases, he added.

“We’re happy to look after people with genuine problems; we don’t like the unnecessary injuries because it depletes our resources and it’s time consuming (but) we’re happy with what we’re seeing here,” he said.

Road crashes    Still, there was some concern that road crashes were now becoming an increasing problem at the hospital.     “I don’t have the data for that, but when I walk through the A&E and look at the ward it’s motor vehicle accident cases that we’re getting now…and if we are able to drop it like the gunshot wounds, then in spite of our limitations, we should be doing very well,” Dr.
