The Public Hospitals Authority (PHA) and Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre (SRC) confirms the passing of Staff Nurse Bernadette Rolle on Friday 21st August 2020. Nurse Rolle who was deployed to the Male Ward of the Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre, was being treated at the South Beach COVID-19 Centre at the time of her demise.
During her tenure of more than fourteen (14) years with the PHA, Nurse Rolle worked across various wards at the Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre. SRC Hospital Administrator Mary Lightbourne-Walker described the loss as one that is a blow to the Sandilands Family.
She convened an emergency meeting this morning to advise staff at SRC of Nurse Rolle’s passing and to address any concerns they may have in her capacity as HA. Walker also a nurse by profession, said the sacrifices being made by our frontline workers to provide care cannot be overstated. She added, “It is my hope that more and more members of the public will see the need for the public to partner with those of us in healthcare to reduce the spread of COVID-19.”
The PHA Board of Directors, Managing Director, Senior Executives and staff of the PHA joins the Sandilands Family in extending condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Staff Nurse Bernadette Rolle. The PHA thanks the public for their continued support and prayers during this time.
