Drug shortage hits WCD health centres

first_imgSeveral health centres across the West Coast of Demerara have been facing significant drug shortages for the past month thus causing some to worry they would have to purchase basic medications.The issue started at the West Demerara Regional Hospital (WDRH) and continued as a trend at the Leonora Cottage Hospital and the Meten-Meer-Zorg Health Centre.Sources at the WDRH confirmed on Thursday that many individuals, primarily senior citizens, were diagnosed with their respective illnesses and were forced to leave without any medication.“We have people coming in here and we having Panadol to give them. Old people who need medications are being turned away, because we can tell them what’s wrong, but we can’t really help them, because they need the drugs,” a medical professional told Guyana Times.He explained that this matter was of concern, since some rural families depended on public healthcare.“These people need their blood pressure and cholesterol and other medications. Just today we had a complication with a child and the parents had to go and buy the meds, because we don’t have it to give them. It’s a public hospital and we should be able to provide these pills at least,” he explained.Meanwhile, other patients shared similar sentiments on Tuesday about other services being provided at the Leonora Cottage Hospital and also hinted that the Hospital lacked medical personnel to attend to patients.Adding to that, accident victims are usually transferred to the WDRH during the night owing to a lack of doctors.Councillor of Constituency Four (Zeelugt), Poorandai Sukhu informed this publication that patients have complained of a medicine shortage at the Meten-Meer-Zorg Health Centre. During visits to the clinic, basic drugs are not supplied and patients are told that “they do not have”.“People complain that when they go, they are not getting any medicine which should be provided, and then they have to do without or go and buy,” she said.Last year, doctors and nurses at the Skeldon Hospital staged a sit-in and refused to see patients given a shortage of drugs and lack of basic equipment for them to carry out their duties.Since they had no tools to down, the staff at the Accident and Emergency Unit simply refused to see patients who turned up at the facility.During that same period, workers at the Linden Hospital Complex (LHC) downed their tools, staging a three-hour sit-in as a result of the same issue. Immediate intervention was sought by contacting the Public Health Ministry to temporarily dispatch some drugs.last_img read more

24″ &Gray Long Wavy Lady Fashion Daily Heat Resistant Lace Front Hair Wig, It’s soooooo awesome. I trimmed it because that’s what I wanted

first_imgI am going insane for this hair the closure beats any of the earlier weaves i’ve experienced so comprehensive and bouncy even even though it truly is pin straight 24′ black hair i enjoy this so much. I can use this for a get together or for a regular day it does tangle a little bit at the bottom so maintain a brush with you but it’s so secure would like i experienced occur across this ages ago.Have had this wig for a month or two now and i am so more than the moon with it. It arrived in a nice box with a totally free wig cap, wrapped in a hair web and put in a protective bag through transport. The color that is in the photograph is exactly what you see when you choose it out of its packaging. The hair duration is perfect (some hairs could need to have a slight trim) but that is up to the specific of training course. I like the good quality of the lace, feels like good lace and not the plastic model that is heading all over on some wigs. Wig arrives with two combs to connect to your hair/wig cap but it could do with much more despite the fact that very little a few kirby grips (bobby pins) won’t be able to type. Hair fibre is heat resistant- it curls and straightened seriously simply & nonetheless remained tender and not brittle/straw like. There is a whole lot of hair which is very good for all those who want quantity. General i would give this a five/five star ranking as to me it’s the most effective artificial lace front ‘cosplay’ wig that i have bought to date.Unbelievable wig for the selling price. It was way to long for me individually so i basically slice it quite a bit. But all in all its a good wig especially for how inexpensive it was.Comments from buyers“Loved the hair would buy again, Incredible wig for the price!, Absolutely in love with this wig, Love, love, love, It’s soooooo awesome. I trimmed it because that’s what I wanted , not the best wig”I trimmed it due to the fact that is what i needed. I trimmed it mainly because that is what i wanted but it is really a cozy suit and looks crazy.This is my second time obtaining this wig. I appreciate it so a great deal, the colour and the ombré is tremendous natural and the hair isn’t really majorly shiny. The only slight draw back is that there is lumps at the top rated of the hair, bt very little a little bit of heat will not type out.Good value and wonderful shipping and delivery.I recommend this wig for very first timers like myself. This was these a fantastic alternative for my initially wig, truly pleased with how it looks and how gentle it is, my only concern is that the black appears to be a bit fake compared to the grey but you can generally include some powder to get rid of the glow. It also states that its heat resistant so i experimented with curling it but failed, so i wasnt pleased about that considering the fact that i believed this wig would appear beautiful if it was curly. But general this wig is enjoyment and comfortable to put on and pleasurable to go out in.I suggest this wig for any to start with timers like myself.It is nicely well worth every penny. The finishes do get a bit knotted so keep a brush with you as prior critiques condition, i dress in mine in all places and people today normally believe it really is my true hair. I like to shade the line of the wig that’s against my forehead with black eyeshadow to make it seem like i have little black infant hairs as my hair is brown and it minimises it showing. I also mix in some concealer on the parting so it matches my skin colour. I will absolutely be shopping for a lot more wigs from this seller.Terrific wig specifically for the value, stays on incredibly, looks sensible if you put the effort and hard work into it, i lower layers into mine and plucked some hair and hid the hair line to my normal colour.Loved the hair would acquire again. Cherished the hair would buy all over again. I am asking yourself when it will it be again in stock.Could 100% move this as true hair. Does get very heat and slips again a minimal bit but nothing at all too main. Pretty fantastic excellent for the selling price.So joyful with how this turned out. The hair feels amazing and arrived quicker than expected. Ready to blend it properly with mine. My only criticism is that it is a little bit smaller won’t in good shape all over my head entirely but that could possibly be since i have thick hair myself.It can be instead long so i finished up reducing mine as it tangled a minimal on the finishes but would definitely acquire additional from this seller.Acquired this wig within just approximated time frame, at initial i did not assume it was the wig it was so hefty, super thick and we will blended just like the photograph. No issue how you element it, you have the black roots through and section is tremendous practical. I wore this to a pageant follow day and even near up, the other contestants thought it was my hair. Awesome price for revenue, would spend a good deal far more for this. The only way this could be better was if it have been human hair but obviously i know that’s not almost attainable for this cost x.I was iffy with it when it came curly but when i straightened it oh my god, it is the very best wig i have. (i have a good several) it truly is so lovely and silky, any tangles brush out immediately and has no indicators of top quality loss.Certainly in adore with this wig. Totally in adore with this wig. I use it for drag all the time and i get hundreds of compliments for it.Appears to be beautiful, worth the value, excellent top quality, would advise. I’d also recommend straightening it and incorporating talcum powder to make it search much more reasonable.Excellent bodyweight , modern and i get so a lot of compliments definetly will b getting all over again.Colours was excellent as witnessed in the photo upset on the hair line and the thiness 🙁 wont be buying yet again.Acquired this for my daughter – she completely loves it and it seems to be incredible – outstanding value for revenue.last_img read more
