Saint Lucia’s Health Ministry has highlighted the importance of patient involvement in decisions regarding their health and treatment in a message for ‘World Patient Safety Day’ on September 17.

Quality Assurance Manager Tecla Jn Baptiste delivered the message on the Ministry’s behalf.

“By involving patients in decisions about their health and treatment, we foster an environment of transparency, trust, and collaboration,” Jn Baptiste noted.

She emphasised the Quality Assurance Unit’s commitment to providing the highest standards of care through patient engagement, which is central to achieving safer healthcare outcomes.

  1. But when I told my doctor I got covid and have natural immunity they still recommended I take that vaxxine. I provided them the science clearly showing the superiority of natural immunity and even videos of Fauci saying the same thing and they said I was a conspiracy theorists. How can I now trust these health care providers when they are daft and just follow narratives and not the science?

  2. Those same nurses and doctors were not involving patients when it came to covid shots, not telling the people about the adverse effects of the shot, giving injection to anyone, not asking basic questions about patients health. Now people falling all around no investigation, no reporting by those same Dr’s and nurses about vaccine damage etc. Now you’ll get promotion which we the tax payers have to foot, now you’ll get you’ll duty free concessions, driving around in audi and other rides at our expense. Is this about the patients health of the Dr’s and nurses wealth?

  3. Applause are in order to the Ministiry of Health. recognition of ‘World Patient Safety Day’ on September 17th underscores the critical importance of patient involvement in healthcare decisions.

    While it’s commendable to observe these ‘world days’, which raise awareness on vital issues, there’s a pressing need for the ministry to transcend the symbolic gestures that last just 24 hours. It’s essential to ask: Are these observations followed by actionable policies and sustained practices that genuinely improve patient safety throughout the year?

    Again, the Ministry is very good at raising awareness about these world days. Here in the US these world days do not get the same level of attention at the local level. Keep the world days and press releases or video releases, But………I hope to see the ministry adopting a proactive stance, where these observations lead to tangible, lasting change, ensuring the well-being of every patient in Saint Lucia.
