Suddie Public Hospital out of insulin, syringe supplies

first_imgScores of diabetic patients in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) have been complaining of having to incur additional expenses to purchase insulin medication and also the syringes for them to receive their treatment at the Suddie Public Hospital.The State-run medical facility is without insulin injections and syringes since late January, and although requests were made for additional supplies, there still remains a shortage.According to patients, they are given prescriptions to purchase the insulin and syringes and to return to have doctors administer same.This is causing great inconvenience, as many patients cannot afford to purchase the medication.Recently, several persons were admitted to the Hospital for hypertension and there is very little that medical practitioners can do. Pensioners are predominately affected, since they cannot afford to purchase the medication needed.“It seem as if we have to reserve to alternative measures of eating cucumber to lower we pressure, I have been never out of tablets or injections… it’s frustrating, I cannot afford this, my pension has to maintain me and I can’t ask my children,” a poor pensioner from Marias Lodge related.Residents are therefore calling on Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton to immediately intervene, since the situation had become extremely burdensome.Guyana Times was also made to understand that the Hospital is in need of additional medical supplies.
