KHMH CEO Says the Hospital has a Few Issues

Tonight the country’s top referral hospital remains without a functioning CT scan machine which was bought in 2004. Love News asked KHMH CEO Chandra Nisbet-Cansino and she said that the KHMH is actively searching for a new machine.

Chandra Nisbet Cansino, CEO, Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital: “The CT machine of course we continue to try to make our best efforts to get repaired. It’s a machine that was purchased I think in 2004 so it’s now getting just about-  it’s about to be written off per say because it’s hard now to get parts and servicing for a machine at that age so we’re really now trying to source a new city scan machine for the cage image.” 

Nisbet-Cansino also addressed the challenges that medical personnel have been facing since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. As we’ve reported, nurses and doctors were working around the clock, with minimum time off and no holidays. The CEO explained that they are well on their way to recuperating their lost holiday time.

Chandra Nisbet Cansino, CEO, Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital: “Late last year where persons who were able to get their vacation leaves and all the time that were spent where we couldn’t take vacation and we had to be here 24/7 yes so they are seeing some relief for that as concerned .” 

The pandemic has caused much strain on the KHMH finances. CEO Nisbet Cansino stated that the decline in COVID cases is allowing the hospital to open up to additional outpatients which results in generating more revenue.

Chandra Nisbet Cansino, CEO, Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital: “The hospital has opened for the most part for the clinics and the elective surgeries and so our financials are looking a little bit better but it will certainly take us a while with a lot of innovation and a lot of support from the general public for us to get back to where we want  to be.”
