PHA Institutions on day 8 of Staff Sick Out


The Public Hospitals Authority (PHA) advises that a staff ‘sick out’ for an eighth day is impacting institutions in New Providence. The Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) continues to experience limited staffing and expected delays in services.

The Offsite Blood Donation Drive organized by the hospital at the New Providence Community Church, Blake Road, scheduled for Thursday August 19th and Friday August 20th has been postponed until further notice.

All services at Grand Bahama Health Services (GBHS) which includes services at the Rand Memorial Hospital have resumed. The Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre (SRC) continues to experience staff call-ins; services are challenged however patient care and services continue uninterrupted.

The Authority is recommending, where possible, the public access services at community clinics for non-urgent care, as affected institutions may experience delays in services. The public is advised to follow all announcements and public advisories from the Ministry of Health and Public Hospitals Authority regarding Health and Hospital Services.
