SWRHA: Claims of neglect are untrue

Claims that a female patient remained unattended to after collapsing at the San Fernando General Hospital are being refuted.
According to a statement issued by the South West Regional Authority, the circulation of an image on social media with a caption indicating that the patient was left on the floor because there were no ward attendants are untrue. 
The release stated that the patient was placed on the floor by a relative after showing signs of a seizure. It added a medical team assisted and stabilised the patient who was later taken to the emergency department for treatment.
