By Aaron Humes: The Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) is back to its full complement of working staff, according to chief executive officer Michelle Hoare, after a number of them were exposed to potential COVID-19 infection by the tenth patient confirmed with the virus a few weeks ago.

“They have been swabbed and re-swabbed and tested and the tests have all come back negative,” Hoare said.

She says the incident reinforced the need for staff to protect themselves, according to already established protocols for the hospital.

As for the contretemps with the KHMH Workers’ Union and Nurses’ Association, Hoare reiterated that its workers have always been part of the discussion and this was reinforced with meetings with the union leadership and with Prime Minister Dean Barrow.

Hoare says the hospital has not seen its stock of personal protective equipment (PPE) disappear, but there is a system of management to account for what PPE is available. The equipment is distributed by need to the different areas of the hospital. For COVID-19-related matters, the type and protocols to use are different and each is given for one use at a time.
