Parliamentary Committee cites shortfall in equipment, other supplies

first_imgSocial Services visit to Region 10Visits by the Parliamentary Sectoral Committee on Social Services to several hospitals in Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) last year have unearthed a number of issues, some of which had the potential to impede patient care.At the Kwakwani Hospital, the Committee discovered that there were several pieces of equipment the Hospital was in need of but did not have. In its sixth special report released recently, the Committee noted that complaints flowed about the Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU).A section of the Kwakwani HospitalChief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Linden Hospital Complex, Dr Mohamed Riyasat, who briefed Chairperson Dr Vindhya Persaud and members of the team, described the visit as the first from the Committee to the facility.He informed them that the ICU of the Kwakwani Hospital was not fully equipped. In fact, there was only one monitor attached to the department.“The staff of the unit also vented their concerns about the lack of monitors, defibrillators, and ventilators in the department. The CEO told the delegation that all the equipment in the department were working and there were six nurses attached to the unit. At the time of the visit, there were no high-risk babies in the unit.”In addition, there were issues with the structural defects in the operating theatre, including holes in the wall, though the CEO informed the Committee that works on the wall were budgeted for 2017.“There were also enquiries about the amount of anaesthetics available and [they] were told there were enough to do surgeries. However, there is a problem with sutures. Members were further informed that there is a specific type of needle called a cutting edge, which has been out of stock for the past two weeks and the alternative round body is used, but is difficult to handle.”RecommendationsDuring the course of their visit, the Committee members had interactions with Dr Quincy Jones. While he is a general doctor, he also holds a Degree in Public Health with a specialisation in health policy and financing.“Members enquired what improvements are needed at the hospital and he indicated that behavioural changes were needed across board. He also indicated that he did a study on whether Linden should go as a Regional Health Authority (RHA) or corporation and he had found that it would be good to make the hospital a corporation in the short term and a RHA in the long term.”That being said, he noted that there were challenges to establishing a RHA and as such, he recommended that the Hospital be a corporation first. In their report, the Parliamentary Committee recommended there be an investigation into the benefits a RHA would bring versus a corporation.last_img read more

Sony PlayStation 4: There’s Still No “Mass-Production Box”

first_imgnick statt Tags:#gaming#PlayStation 4#Sony After Wednesday night’s PlayStation Meeting event, a flurry of questions still surround the future of next-gen gaming and where the PlayStation 4 will fit in.(See also The PlayStation 4 Is Here, But We Don’t Know What It Looks Like)Since then, Sony has been nice enough to clear up a few of the most pressing issues, namely why it did not show the console even once throughout its two-hour presentation. The answer, from Sony CEO Jack Tretton, is that there is no “mass-production box” at the moment.“The Console Is Just A Console”Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios group, complemented that answer by explaining that event was aimed at expressing the company’s next-gen vision, not showcasing hardware specs and final design. “The console is just a box… the controller was very important to show because it has the share button, but the console is just a console,” he said in an interview with Polygon.Sony also addressed some of the less important questions surrounding the PS4:The Dualshock 3 controller will not be supported on the new console.The PS4 will in fact support 4K video and photo streaming, but not for games.3D is not important. Yoshida explained the company’s dismissive mindset when it comes to 3D, “…All of the companies have shifted focus from 3D TV to something else, so if they’re not talking about it, why would we?”Used games? To the many gamers who feared the PS4 would integrate a ban on used games, Yoshida offered concise, yet vague, reassurance. “Used games can play on the PS4,” he said in an interview with Eurogamer, leaving open the possibility of a potential access code that customers might have to purchase to access a used title.Social and offline play. In a cheeky swipe at those adverse to Sony’s big push for social media integration, Yoshida said, “We understand there are some people who are anti-social! So if you don’t want to connect to anyone else, you can do that.”For those who like to salivate over processing power and performance, Sony released a full spec sheet, confirming its AMD innards. The processor will be comprised of eight x86-64 AMD Jaguar CPU cores and a next-gen AMD Radeon-based graphics engine that will push 1.84 teraflops. Sony is still playing mum on an official release date and pricing, and Yoshida didn’t shed much light on whether or not the physical console box will be ready for an E3 unveiling: “We’re still trying to decide that,” he said.

Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez introduces bill on paid sick leave

first_img KUSI Newsroom KUSI Newsroom, Posted: March 15, 2019 Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez introduces bill on paid sick leave March 15, 2019 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, announced today that she has introduced a bill to guarantee at least five paid sick days each year for the state’s private sector workers.The bill will expand on Gonzalez’s 2014 law that required private sector companies to provide at least three days of paid sick leave per year to employees. According to Gonzalez, nearly 6.9 million state residents gained access to sick leave thanks to the law. Multiple cities around the state, including San Diego, Los Angeles and Santa Monica, have since passed laws to further expand paid sick leave benefits.“We knew when we passed the paid sick leave law that three days wouldn’t be enough but was a great start,” Gonzalez said. “California was a national leader in establishing earned sick leave for every employee in the state. Now, we need to catch up to other cities and states that have recognized the need for, and have passed, more expansive laws for workers.”The new bill would mandate that employers offer at least five days of sick leave to employees by their 200th day on the job. The bill would accommodate recovery times for the flu, according to Gonzalez’s office, which average about five days.A 2010 study by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research found that roughly eight million workers around the country went to work while fighting the flu during the 2009 flu season. As a result, an additional seven million people contracted the flu virus.Gonzalez proposed a functionally similar bill during the 2017-2018 legislative session, which subsequently died in committee. Her office did not disclose when they expect the new bill, AB 555, to have its first committee hearing. Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img read more
