Toilet facilities at the National Referral Hospital (NRH) are for sick patients, and not for the public says the acting NRH Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
In an interview yesterday Dr Rooney Jagilly said the public has failed to abide by the rules and regulations of the hospital.
“Thus leads to the abuse of the toilet facilities within the hospital which supposed to be for sick patients and guardians only.”
He said, now a days it’s hard to control the flow of people coming into the hospital just to use the facilities. He believes this is one of the contributing factors to the abuse of the facilities.
“This is not a public toilet and I’m calling on the general public to respect the facilities within the institution and to work together with the NRH for the good of our sick people who are admitted at the hospital.”
Dr Jagilly highlighted that some people are very ignorant of the rules and instead of having one guardian looking after the sick patient, there are about three or four people looking after the same patient which is totally against the rules of the hospital.
With that, the acting CEO also appeals for respect to the visiting hours and restrict the number of guardians to one and not more than that to avoid the abuse of the facilities.
