Ministry of Health addresses alleged body mixup report

By: Staff Reporter,

    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts — FOLLOWING a recent media report suggesting a mixup with bodies at the Joseph N France General Hospital, the Ministry of Health has issued a statement to clarify the situation.


    The report claimed that a family received and buried the wrong corpse, a claim strongly refuted by the Ministry of Health.


    In a recent media statement, the ministry condemned the report, denouncing it as false. The Ministry has taken steps to address the matter legally, forwarding it to the Office of the Attorney General for further consideration.


    The statement emphasized the Ministry of Health's and JNF General Hospital's commitment to strict adherence to protocols concerning the handling and identification of deceased individuals. These protocols are meticulously followed to ensure the dignity of the deceased and their families, with a focus on accuracy and sensitivity in managing final arrangements. The Ministry confirmed that no such incident occurred and urged the public to refrain from spreading misinformation that could cause distress to families and communities.


    In addition to addressing the issue, the Ministry provided an update on ongoing renovations and improvements at the JNF Hospital. Recognizing the need for significant enhancements due to years of neglect, the Ministry has committed to a series of upgrades to revitalize the facility, including the morgue and surrounding areas. These efforts are part of the Ministry's dedication to enhancing healthcare services across the federation and ensuring that facilities meet the highest standards of care and operation.


    "The Ministry of Health remains dedicated to transparency and accountability in all aspects of healthcare delivery," the statement concluded. "We  remain committed to providing the public with accurate information and urge everyone to rely on official sources for news concerning healthcare services in St. Kitts and Nevis."
