Gunman threatens staff at QEH

An assault by a gunman today forced the early closure of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

A gunman burst into the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) earlier this afternoon and threatened staff before making a daring escape.

The incident, which occurred around 1 p.m, forced management of the QEH to close the hospital and cancel visiting hours for the remainder of the day.

According to reports, the gunman entered the hospital in an apparent rage following the death of a relative, who passed away while being treated at the health institution.

It is unknown if anyone was injured during the attack.

Following the assault, the QEH has advised doctors and nurses to answer the doors with caution.

Police are investigating the incident.

    So he watched John Q and decided to reenact a few scenes. Smh. Not sure the cause of the relative’s death but if it was due to patient care, maybe this will wake up QEH and demand better treatment, facilities, and staff.

So the staff who are trying hard to work with what they have should be fearful for their lives and this nut is somehow justified in what hes doing ?! By your convoluted logic he should repeat the same at the ministry then..

      Mrs. Cox West your comment leaves a lot to be desired. None of the health care workers at QEH go out to deliver suboptimal care. Patients either get better or die that’s the nature of health. Relatives go through the the various state of grief which the guy did. However if expression was inappropriate. What it says to the Directors is that we need better security and the push to get the red tape remove to get the metal detector online.

      Your comments and frustration are completely misplaced. What is fair and what is right are two different things. If your job lack the resources necessary to do it, demand more or demand better. Being complacent is what we are seeing–from both staff and government. When was the last time doctors and nurses staged a protest?! When was the last time staff said enough is enough?! It has been a while and as a result things have reached a boiling point for many. So please miss me with the “my job is hard” foolery and the “how would you feel” jargon.

      Mac 10. Are you aware of the infrastructure of barbados, inasmuch as we would love to believe we are in the firzt worls, we are not..security at the hospital is not really secure . many of us who visited our loved ones need only know which ward thry are in. We can then proceed to the floor unrestricted. This is the barbados of the past.. we must be willing to accept that we are not yet there in technology and security monitoring. On a recent trip to barbados, i visited the hospital to see three different love ones. 2 passed away, i personally was impressed with the level of care that was delivered by the medical staff and support services. They do an excellent job with limited resourses.
      When outside firms are contracted to protect and monitor governmental institutions, this lapse of security will be a problem, their responsibility is to the security firm who cuts their check, not to the institution or the staff,patients or visitors.

        Melissa, I am with you on the idea of Private Island living. Here is a link to help with your search. http://www.privateislandsinc.com.
        With all the issues of guns lately, I have to say that I am very uncomfortable visiting Barbados now. Even if I do stay in a gated secure community, I would still need to get out and about. The events of late are above the everyday beach and street harassment which you can mostly ignore but gun play is a completely different story.

    Plum C. Bardot i agree with you we used the hospital foolishly eg. we have polyclinics that we can utilize for minor illnesses but yet the QEH is used instead. On the other hand some of the services at the hospital can be upgraded eg. after being in an accident where i was taken to qeh around 6:00 pm and had all the necessary test done all results with the exception of the xray result was given back – when 12:00 the night came i was still waiting for those results i had to leave the qeh and go to sandy crest and had the same test repeated and got back the results in less than 1/2 hr. But to sum up everything we do have a very good health system because i work in health i can say that and we need to appreciate it because when we go overseas and have to use the health facility you have to pay for everything and you cant see a doctor unless you have insurance. i am not saying its the best in the world but it is better than some health facilities.

      The government may be limited through the legislative arm by passing stiffer laws. It is up to the judicial branch to act on these laws. But of course some smart ass lawyer will argue that they may be unconstitutional . We had upsurge in gun violence 20 years ago and a law was passed if found the minimum sentence would have been 25 years. But of course it was deemed unconstitutional.

Maybe next year if things do in fact change for the better.

      What government offices and all businesses in Barbados need to have are “Armed Guards”, weapons concealed or visible. So the airport, schools, medical offices, supermarkets, hospitals, beauty salons, hotels, etc., need to have armed security. This is the case in other countries, the norm that people come to expect and no it does not deter tourism (Jamaica, Nicaragua, Peru, Ecuador for example).

    This is so sad to see what our island is coming to. Violence is not good.
    Does he fully understand why his relative die? A gun wont bring them back.Why not try to do something,like start or support a cause in their name for education and prevention of whatever the sickness.
    In some hospitals in the US you can just walk in. A hospital has different dynamics to other places so it is a bit harder for security to control.
    The problem mainly is that it is becoming ok to use a weapon to settle grievances. Where and how are all these guns coming from?
    We are a nation blessed by God. It is time to reclaim our spiritual foundation in Jesus.He is the only security. The way,the truth and the life. And through His Holy Spirit,the great Comforter.

    When you say A you should say B….I have had a bad experience the first time I entered the qeh for treatment while pregnant and I cannot say it was a good experience with the nurse….but on the second return I had first class treatment and was impressed. Some do play the tail but overworked and underpaid as they are some do make the most of it and treat you well…..some.understanding would be nice.

    Ps- I think those attacking Ms West missed the “smh”. I feel sure by “this” she meant the relative’s death,not the person’s actions. Arent you guilty in a similar fashion to this young man when you’re so ready to attack her comment.
    And by reports I have heard,she has said nothing wrong.
    The bottom line? No one should be quick to jump to conclusions or to accuse

    The system has failed again when you have fools coming into a hospital with a gun, Bajans, what the hell is going on in my beloved country?

    I do not condone the actions of this gunman but what do you think would be the outcome even if he took the proper channels in this country? I am not saying that poor care was the reason for his relative’s death but it is indeed possible, isn’t it? There are many instances of uncaring staff members, doctors included, at the QEH just as there are many instances of caring staff members, also doctors included. But those uncaring doctors seem to be untouchable. When the ordinary man sees the system seeking to frustrate him to protect and serve the elite he sometimes turns to violence to make his point. And we all know for whom our system works. Please fix our judicial system!

      Agree completely with you Donna. Someone above said that going in there with a gun or shooting somebody will not bring back the relative…agree too,but suing the Hospital will NOT bring back the relative either.

      I say to those UNCOUTH GOVERNMENT WORKERS, stop being so UNCARING things WILL get worse if wunna don’t change wunna ATTITUDES.

    some people express anger when a loveone dies. I’m sure that the person who entered that hospital was so filled with emotion of the death that he went a bit overboard.thankfuly, no one was assulted during this rampage. It can be very difficult to deal with death especially if it is someone close to you or if the death is unexpected.
