    And what makes matter worse, they all going to get a hefty Bill from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, for “Emergency Services”, Ambulance Cost, X Rays, Cap Scans the works. Imagine that, for anyone who is injured in an emergency situation, so if you don’t know this or are not aware that this is going on, you might as well go to some Private Hospital and get first class treatment instead of that shabby display that is happening at the Emergency Department where you will be unattended for hours after they drop you off, they even charge you for any meds they give you. Citizens of Barbados that pays a ton of taxes and NIS every months, week etc.. You think that’s cool?

      Carol Atkins Yeah some drunk woman hit my car 6 weeks ago, that is another issue, they don’t check for DUI here period, ended up in hospital and got a bill 2 weeks ago. Thought they must mistaken me for a Tourist, but no they say its “standard now”. The Treatment there was below par hours lying around b4 a soul looked at you. Hope that these people up there fare better.

      I thought most people knew the QEH charges for treatment even for nationals. The A&E has a fee and they ask you if you have health insurance and everything.

      I knew they charge you for operations etc. but I would never have thought they would charge you when you get licked own in an accident or something like that. Problem is when the party that licked you down drunk plays the “can’t remember how it happened” part & you gotta sit down there with your pain already, use up all your money to get more professional treatment and bam a massive Hospital bill. How can the ordinary people say that ain’t got no income but get licked down in an accident afford this thing??? It ain’t to say that the “treatment” you getting at the QEH is first class – it ain’t.

    I honestly feel that the insurance company where the vehicle is insured should pay also to replace all those street lights that get knocked down.
    Most of the persons who want everything free are the ones who do not want to pay taxes. It is about time ALL, ALL of us pay our fair share of taxes. After paying our fair share we should expect to get and demand FIRST CLASS TREATMENT.
    It is about time we get better in Barbados instead of us appearing as if we are regressing.

    @, Loretta G.. hail, hail on the button, that’s the problem black people want everything to be free , but not contributing in anyway, in barbados they carry this non productive lazy attitude , but hey people all the freeness is over. Freeness done wid..

    Our bajan peoples attitude is an extension of the behaviour of our politicians still thinking low down the scale, the I am ok , them and us brigade, that’s where we are at.. we need to do for ourselves, we need to take what we have and use it the best we can, we need to get our fingers out as I always say Barbados is there for the taking , but not by bajans…I think we are been sold down the river….
