  1. Finally. Antiguan being given a chance. Too many positions filled by foreigners when qualified Antiguans are available

  2. That’s a good look for MJSMC.

    I do however think Ms. Crump is a bit delusional for her statement, “our position as the leading hospital in the region.”
    You can’t be a leading hospital when people are afraid to go there. They have a long way to go but it’s good to be hopeful.

  3. “You can’t be a leading hospital when people are afraid to go there” this is a huge understatement! I have had some bad experiences there..bad enough during an emergency where you are left for HOURS on a cold, grimy surface table/bed waiting for someone to see you or put a darn IV in. No doctor to look in on you.. and when you ask out in passing they tell you they are not responsible for your case.I could tell you horror stories..I am even amazed I went there cause I always said if i was dying by the roadside and anyone wants to take me to the hospital..please leave me to die in peace..

    I really hope they get their act together. I can understand they don’t get paid much so they really couldn’t care less (nurses etc)

    Congrats tho to Gaden Osborne!
