PHA clarifies nurses clinical rotation query


The Public Hospitals Authority (PHA) wishes to advise that in keeping with the National Protocols on COVID-19, the Authority implemented measures dating back to March 2020 to ensure the safety of all persons entering our institutions and agencies. These
protocols also govern the facilitation of our clinical services and training programs.

It is against this backdrop that the PHA wishes to advise that during the period March 2020 to March 2021 students from the University of the West Indies (UWI) and the University of the Bahamas (UB) were unable to access the clinical environment at our institutions. The PHA confirms that on Monday May 10th, students from the Trained Clinical Nurse Program commenced their 14-week rotation in the clinical environment of the Public Hospitals Authority, starting with the Princess Margaret Hospital. Logistics pertaining to the re-entry of the Bachelor of Science Nursing Students is expected to be completed shortly.

The PHA maintains the highest standards of compliance with COVID-19 Protocols for the well-being of patients, visitors, and staff in our facilities.
