-region restates call for removal
The chained hospital gates as nurses stood outside
Nurses and other staff members of the Linden Hospital Complex were temporarily prevented from entering the facility’s compound yesterday after the gates were chained.
Region Ten Regional Democratic Council (RDC) Chairman Deron Adams told Stabroek News that embattled Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Rudolph Small ordered that the gates be chained and subsequently had them removed after he arrived and the situation was publicised on Facebook.
Small has been the subject of a protest by nurses over comments he made suggesting that they absent themselves to engage in extra-marital affairs during work hours.
