Morgue upgrade

Repeka Nasiko
Friday, January 17, 2014

THE upgrade of the Nadi Hospital mortuary means Nadi residents won't have to travel to Lautoka or Sigatoka to collect the body of deceased family members.

The old mortuary could only hold eight bodies in the past.

"But with the recent expansion, it can now hold a total of 16 bodies," said Nadi Hospital Visitors Board of Trust chairman Israr Khan.

"This used to create a lot of problems in the past, because when it was full the bodies would be sent to Sigatoka or Lautoka hospitals.

"When that happened, the relatives or family members would have to travel all the way to Sigatoka or Lautoka to retrieve the bodies."

Mr Khan said the hospital charged people if the bodies were kept in the morgue for more than two days.
