Hospital CEO: Lax security contributed to nurse being stabbed, burned
The security personnel on duty at the Georgetown Pub-lic Hospital (GPH) on Sunday night when a nurse/midwife was attacked by her former lover, failed to perform their duties, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Michael Khan said.
Khan, speaking with Stabroek News briefly via telephone yesterday, said that the negligent security personnel will be dealt with.
He further explained that a security guard is always present at the entrance to the compound where the maternity ward is located. Another security guard, according to the CEO, is stationed in the ward. All security personnel were on duty at the time of the attack.
