The St. Lucia Nurses Association (SLNA) has issued a statement regarding an alleged incident at St. Jude Hospital (SJH), involving the Nursing Director and a nursing staff.

A viral social media post titled ‘What Is Going On At Our St. Jude Hospital’ claimed that there had been an altercation at the hospital.

However, the SLNA explained that it could provide no information until a thorough investigation.

The complete statement appears below:

The St. Lucia Nurses Association (SLNA) is a professional organization which represents the interests of its nurses and the delivery of quality health care to the public.

It is a non- profit and non-partisan organization which seeks to be a dynamic, vibrant, and visible organization.

The mission of SLNA is to enhance professional development, sustain the socio-economic welfare of its members and ensure the provision of quality care for clients and customers.

We have been made aware of an alleged incident between the Nursing Director and a nursing staff at the St. Jude Hospital. At this time, we are unable to provide any information on the matter until a thorough investigation has been conducted.

There are procedures that must be followed to ensure due process. It is our hope that the matter be resolved amicably, and the atmosphere of unity and confidence among the nursing staff be restored at the institution.

Therefore, we wish to request from all persons concerned to use discretion and empathy in sharing and requesting information on the alleged incident.

The nurses at the St. Jude Hospital remain committed to the call of duty.

This alleged incident in no way compromises the quality of care provided or adversely impacts the well-being and work performance of nurses at the institution.

SLNA continues to support nurses and aims to use this experience to enhance resilience, advocate for continuous professional development, role direction and training for effective job crafting and orientation.

  1. I guess the ND is your personal friend so you hoping for a amicable settlement? yea right birds of a feather flock together. we the public and I am aware that the staff is await to see what the decision will be by management and board. The ND cannot be challenged or all hell break loose. She hardly greets staff at the hospital, the nurses are afraid of her. We the public who knows the truth and listening to some staff we stand in solidarity with the nurse. An alleged assault from a so call manager on a staff cannot be accepted in no way . Do what is right that nurse will work in fear and will be victimized if not handled the way it should. Over to you

  2. @ hip hop you are correct!!! The nursing Director and the President of the SLNA are bossom buddies so of course she will want an amicable resolution. Truth be told the ND has tried bitterly to dismiss the nurse however against all odds the nurse succeeds all her traps. Let us see how this unfolds

  3. NURSES AT OKEU ALL THEY DO IS RUN THEIR MOUTH.PAY NO ATTENTION WHAT THEY WERE EMPLOYED TO DO. A REMINDER TO PROVIDE A SERVICE RO THE SICK
    THEY HELP NOBODY BUT THEIR MOUTH. THEY’RE ONLY IN IT FOR THE MONEY SOME OF THEM AND AS LAZY AS A…
    THEY CAN NEVER WORK IN THE USA WITH NASTY SMELLING ATTITUDE SMH

  4. Nurses work in fear and are being victimized? Wow…I realize lately that nurses are no longer happy with their working conditions now. Shouldn’t nurses be praised often as they are the ones looking after our health and safety when it comes to medical wise? What is happening with the Nursing Director and staff? please give us the public some more clarification as to what is going on. Why should nurses work in fear and being victimized????

  5. Of late so many nurses are leaving St.Jude Hospital….the ND is so moody I think the position went to her head…….most of management at St.Jude are wolves in Sheep Clothing. If i lie say i lie!

  6. You all have yet to learn that a job is a professional environment and friendship should never be part of the equation. In addition, you must be fair and treat all employees with the same respect and discipline them if need be in like manner.

    Some of you Lucians because of your attitude can only work in St. Lucia and no place else. Troubke follows some of you no matter where you go and that’s a shame.
