La Parfaite Harmonie Health Centre returns to former state

first_imgAbout three months ago, Guyana Times reported on the insanitary conditions at the La Parfaite Harmonie Health Centre, where the washroom had no doors and no proper flowing water and grass was as tall as four feet in some sections of the compound.Some of the issues were rectified to facilitate a visit from Junior Public HealthThe current state of the La Parfaite Harmonie Health CentreMinister, Dr Karen Cummings. However, three months later, the Centre has returned to its former state with the grass as tall as three feet, no running water and no medication for patients.On Wednesday, this publication revisited the La Parfaite Harmonie Health Centre, where it was observed that in addition to overgrown grass, the dumping of garbage continued at the back of the facility and there was an inadequate water supply.Additionally, a source within the Health Centre told this newspaper that the facility did not have drugs to treat the patients. It was related that the nurses were forced to turn away pregnant mothers and the elderly since the medication supply was almost exhausted.Efforts to contact Minister Cummings and the Regional Executive Officer, Dennis Jaikarran, proved futile.When Guyana Times initially visited the health-care facility, in addition to a bushy compound and the aforementioned conditions, there was garbage at the back of the yard that was poorly disposed of – an attempt to burn the garbage was evident, but the fire did not destroy most of it. In addition, there were no rubbish bins in the compound, while the water tank and trestle were surrounded by bushy vegetation, with no water flowing through the standpipe in the front of the yard.After the initial report on the state of the facility was published, the Regional Administration hurriedly had the yard weeded, the plumbing redone and garbage bins installed. This was all done to facilitate Minister Cummings’ visit to the facility, where she said that she was pleased with the conditions at the Health Centre.Additionally, the Deputy Regional Executive Officer, Jennifer Ferreira-Dougall, refuted the report, although photographic evidence was published.last_img read more

Van Gaal won’t change his beliefs at Man United, claims Owen

first_img1 Louis van Gaal watches on as Manchester United lose their Premier League opener to Swansea The full interview with Michael Owen appears in the current edition of Sport magazine. Download the free iPad app from the Apple Newsstand, and follow on twitter @sportmagukMichael Owen believes Louis van Gaal will stick to his principles as he seeks a winning formula at Manchester United.The Dutchman set his team up in a 3-5-2 formation for last weekend’s Premier League opener at home to Swansea, but that was abandoned at half-time as a combination of injuries and a lack of cohesion forced a re-think.But Owen insists Holland’s World Cup coach won’t change his way of thinking.“Everybody has been talking about the new Manchester United formation, and how it is going to suit them. It was abandoned after only half of the game, so a lot of people have come to conclusions about that. But it was successful in pre-season,” he told Sport magazine.“I know people say pre-season doesn’t matter and you can get easy games, but Manchester United had some pretty tough games to play, not least against the likes of Liverpool. So I wouldn’t have thought Louis van Gaal will be abandoning it just yet.“Van Gaal is just trying to get the best out of certain players. When everyone is fit, you’ve got two of the best strikers in the league [Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie] and Juan Mata – who plays particularly well in behind two strikers. The only formation you can use to get all of those players into your team is that, unless you want to go and put Wayne Rooney out on the left. Credit to Van Gaal – he’s actually trying to get his best players in their best positions.“But someone like Jesse Lingard has never been a right wing-back until van Gaal took over. He’s played there a bit in pre-season, but when I was there he was always a midfielder – an attacking, central player who could score goals. And Ashley Young has never been a left wing-back in his life.“Just trying to find that right balance will take Van Gaal a little bit of time, as it will to get used to his players. It’s not looked like it’s worked in the first half of the first game, but he won’t abandon it. I’m sure it won’t be the last time we see that system, and I’m sure United will improve as the season goes on.”last_img read more
