QEH relocates A&E
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital implements precautionary measures in light of official alerts about heightened seismic activity detected at the Kick ‘em Jenny volcano in Grenada.
In a statement issued this evening, management announced that the Accident and Emergency (A&E) department has been temporarily relocated to the Antenatal clinic on the ground floor of the hospital with immediate effect.
Chief Executive Officer Dr Dexter James explained that while there was no threat of a tsunami at this time, management had taken the precautionary measures to ensure that selected services are not compromised.
Members of the public are advised that they can enter the Antenatal clinic through the glass doors on the ground floor of the Lions Eye Care Centre. These doors are located to the right of the main entrance of the QEH.
As a result of the relocation of the A & E, all antenatal clinics scheduled for tomorrow have been cancelled.
James however said that antenatal patients with urgent medical problems as well as those who are either at or passed their delivery dates should seek care on the Labour Ward located on B1 on the 2nd floor of the hospital.
Dr James said patients would be advised of a new appointment date as information about the threat level changes.
All other services at the hospital remain unaffected.
