Porters forced to carry patients floor to floor in PMH



The public-run Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) is coming under scrutiny again as the country’s top health official revealed recently that the hospital’s main elevators are out of service, forcing porters and nurses to physically carry patients from floor to floor.

Health Minister Dr. Duane Sands, who spoke one on one with Eyewitness News said, the elevator will remain inoperable for at least six weeks.
