Cleanest hospital

PRIME Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama has labelled the Taveuni Hospital as one of the cleanest hospitals in the country.

Rear Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama commended the staff members of the island hospital, adding there were not many patients in the wards during his tour in the weekend.

He said the hospital's condition spoke of the great effort staff members put in to keep the surrounding presentable.

He also thanked government officials during his tour for their services to the people on the island.

"I want to ask you a couple of questions about your accommodation as we know that a few years ago we had put in money for the renovation of quarters in the Domain area in Suva," he said.

"As a result we have been making money from the renting of these quarters.

"Money generated from the rent of these quarters is now being channelled into the refurbishment of quarters in the rural areas."

Rear Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama said the quarters included those on Kadavu and the outer islands.

He also enquired with health officials about the closure of a dispensary on the south-end of the island which was highlighted in this paper.

Rear Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama was told that the nurse was on leave while the nursing practitioner was attending a workshop.
