A patient and nurse relocated from Cornwall Regional Hospital
Patients and staff who were relocated from Cornwall Regional Hospital in St. James to Falmouth Hospital in Trelawny are reporting that they have been settling in well in their new accomodations.
Most services at Cornwall Regional's main building have been relocated as the worsening air quality problems were affecting the health of the staff and patients.
When RJR News visited the Falmouth Hospital on Thursday, one patient who did not give her name, said she was happy with the relocation and satisfied with the new facilities.
"It's little better here because it don't have any bad odour or anything. Space might be small, yes, but it's ok," she said.
A nurse who also wished not to be named, said although "patients seems to be comfortable so far," she is looking forward to returning to Cornwall Regional.
"At Cornwall, there was something really going on there and I do hope it will be fixed in time so that we can feel at home again," she said optimistically.
