The acting Chairperson said she was shocked to see the condition of the only chair that was given to the High risk mothers to use at the hostel.Indigenous mothers coming from as far as Region One (Barima-Waini) are being housed in the hostel and the living condition is “very bad”, Coonjah said.The acting Chairperson noted that as a women’s advocate, she is very much dissatisfied with the treatment given to the high risk mothers and is seeking the assistance of a few businesses to donate chairs for the mothers before Mother’s Day.Councillor Arnold Adams said the Suddie Hospital needs to be completely rewired since the existing wiring was done about 60 years ago and that is causing many electrical problems at the institution. He added that many pieces of equipment have been damaged due to the faulty wiring, adding that over the past three years, staff have had to sun-dry the hospital’s laundry since the dryer was damaged and never fixed. Adams said on Tuesday there was a scheduled sitting of the Monthly Health Committee Meeting at the hospital but no one turned up for the meeting.
