Letter to the Editor
Hi I wanted to get this out in the open,I need your help, I posted it on cairns open political forum someone suggested I should contact other news outlets as the main ones don’t give a sh..t I’ve re-written below the link It would be good if the hospital staff and local police could be interviewed https://www.facebook.com/groups/cairnsopenpoliticalforum/permalink/1206987903086203/?app=fbl
Calling all of our local council to work together not fight to do something #rightnow not for brownie points.
Was at CAIRNS BASE HOSPITAL the night before last. No hand sanitizer in the emergency area at all. People lined up down the halls coming from ambulances. Not enough staff, front counter, cleaners and triage.
Spoke to 2 police officers from the Edmonton branch that were guarding a patient. They said there was only 4 of them on at NIGHT at the Edmonton police station. I asked with all this crime I asked if more resources were being sent up
They said medical and police were severely underfunded. And they blamed the Queensland Premier Anna for this I thought quietly, I blame our local member. Crime rates are through the roof ! Cairns base hospital can’t cope, Staff are over worked, they are rushing people out the door that do need to stay longer just to get the emergencies and other people into beds
What is going on here? Imagine if covid hit here, winter is looming. We wouldn’t cope something needs to be done immediately.
And the roads in the city that are getting fixed I nearly drove in a ditch around the roundabout that is getting built coming home from the hospital. What is going on here?
