Showdown with Doctors

It is outrageous the government and the management at QEH are more concerned with hiding their embarrassment than with making sure that the hospital is safe.
From a government that promised transparency, it seems that they are stuck in the same old culture of secrecy  which is the ideal environment for corruption, leads to the deterioration in services and demoralises and disillusions the workers and the citizens.
The failure of the management at QEH to ensure the safety of Bajans using the hospital is legitimate information for every Bajan to know and any rules or regulations which penalise putting such information into the public domain should be scrapped.
Instead of spending time and resources taking disciplinary action against the doctor, the management at the hospital should be using this time, energy and resources to address the problems that have been highlighted.
Tee White

Since Dr. Maurice Walrond (General Surgeon) went public to voice concerns about how surgeries are being performed at the QEH in a COVID 19 environment, the management of the hospital has been forced to initiate an action that will require Dr. Walrond to defend himself against a charge of a breach of contract.

It is regrettable the issue had to be raised in the glare of the public. Of greater concern to the blogmaster is that Walrond and the eleven doctors supporting his position were unable to sit around a table to resolve the issue.  Very unfortunate indeed.

It should not come as a surprise QEH management issued a ‘letter’ to Walrond, this is a standard HR practice to respond to any employee or ‘contractee’ thought to have violated terms and conditions of employment. Walrond being the intelligent person that he must be would have calculated the risk reward as they say of taking a public position. The risk to his contract at the QEH being revoked versus the merit of his argument (and eleven colleagues) that the public health of Barbados is being compromised by the existing QEH protocol to deal with surgeries.

The QEH has a responsibility to follow ‘grievance procedure’ and in all fairness could not be expected to ignore Dr. Walrond’s decision to go public last week with David Ellis on the afternoon show Getting Down to Brasstacks. Can you imagine if Tom, Dick and Harry contracted by the QEH to deliver sensitive services felt unfettered access to the media to air concerns was the best option to resolve problems? Such an approach would compromise the running of the QEH or any organization for that matter.

One suspects Dr. Walrond would have weighed the possible outcomes his bold action would have triggered. He comes from a family  setup where he should have benefited from being around his mother (May She Rest in Peace) AND a father who is a retired surgeon. One suspects there is more to come in this matter. What action will the eleven other doctors take who have reportedly affixed their signature to the letter sent to management supporting Walrond’s concerns? Walrond is only the face of the dispute. Surely they will not throw Walrond under the bus without trying to save him. It is reported Walrond initiated communication with BAMP.

The blogmaster understand the arguments from BOTH sides. The QEH is hamstrung by lack of resources to implement the ideal site to do surgeries in a COVID 19 environment. In such a situation Walrond et al will find good reasons to be critical. In this situation reasonable men charged with protecting the health of Barbadians are encouraged to pursue a path to achieve a balanced (win win) position. Airing this matter in public makes for good ratings for the media but says nothing about our ability as an educated people to satisfactorily resolve conflict.

What a time for the public health sector to become unstable.

Our children are watching and modelling our behaviours.

    If the good intentions of the goodly doctor have breached any of the contractual conditions under which type of contractual arrangement is put in place, the goodly doctor, unfortunately, will be in breached of contract. The contract will specifically indicate that IF the contracted should do this or that, THEN B will be the subsequent action taken. His actions in this matter though laudable will go against the precedent laid out in the contract terms unless disclosures relative to internal matters are covered by it (but I doubt that). As a result, he will not have a foot to stand on, regardless of the facts he sought to bring in the public domain. Barbados has a structure that is apparent in keeping wrongdoing covered and completely closed to the public. It is the reason why the call for transparency, accountability and whistleblower legislation keeps on falling on deaf ears. What is offered is comfort speeches given and the appearance of making it look like you have provided that type of legislation when in truth it does not cover much but is enough to keep the fools believing that something was done. Unfortunately, this is a case where the doctor more than likely will suffer the consequences for his actions because contracts are serious things and sometimes breaking them for the greater good means putting your livelihood, credibility, and what you belief in at the disposal of possible disciplinary action or termination.

    If we are going to talk let us be fair and frank about all or most issues at QEH, not just covid…

    Where was Dr Waldron’s voice when the hospital had no toilet paper, no linens, no beds and was not being cleaned daily or properly. When people were laying on gurneys In A&E for days (some dying) before seeing a doctor?

    Where was Dr Waldron’s voice when people were sitting in A&E for days without being seen or attended to?

    Where was Dr Waldron’s voice when patients were waiting months and sometimes years for a simple medical report in order to substantiate their insurance claims for compensation for an accident after going through A&E?

    Where is Dr Waldron’s voice when surgeons like Dr Gill is not seeing patients but is keeping their files active because he is paid monthly by QEH for each patient that still has an active file open?

    Where is Dr Waldron’s voice when you are waiting on Dr Gill two (yes two) years for a medical report in order for social services to access you for travel overseas for brain surgery?

    Every time attempts are made to clean up the QEH they are met with people like Dr Waldron, Dr Gill etc who want the same sh**t to continue

    These surgeons control the hospital and no one can tell them anything. Even the other doctors, assistance and staff that are assigned to them are afraid of them.

    Dr Forde and Dr Cave don’t back down, continue to stand on principle for what you believe to be best for the QEH and for Bajans!

    Mrs. Bynoe-Sutherland continue to clean up the mess because you are a woman with BALLS and I applaud you!!

Dr. Walrond is fully aware that by going public he would have breached his contract. It is a risk reward scenario where he is hoping that the public good coming out of his effort will mitigate disciplinary action. Note that at this point NO disciplinary action has been taken. He has been called to answer a charge arising from the breech.

To suggest that an employee, whether surgeon or cleaner, should not talk to the press without permission is undemocratic and bullying. This is more so in a hospital situation.
    Just ask yourself: how many cases of medical negligence have been brought to court in Barbados over the last 25 years? Either we have the best doctors in the world, or our arbitration system is perfect. Or, what I prefer to believe, there is a culture of cover-up.
    But I find it strange that a social media site that masquerades as part of the media should support a ‘contract’ that censors key staff from exposing bad management and incompetence – and which puts the public at risk.

I listened to parts of the call-in program and I couldn’t see what all the uproar was about by having the facility at Enmore and conducting operations there. I live very close to the facility and am not worried . As Drs.Cave and Forde said, risk assessment was taken into account. There is always risk associated with with any enterprise. There is risk associated with the use of chlorine in obtaining potable water for the populace; since at concentrations over 1000 ppm, chlorine is carcinogenic.

  • The ’employment contract’ talk is nothing but a justification for the ongoing culture of secrecy, without which the levels of corruption and wrong doing that goes on in Barbados wouldn’t be possible.

    Brain Tumor Patient @ 7:03 AM highlights many of the additional problems at QEH and we also know of the ones at the Transport Board, the Cement Plant, the port and elsewhere. But these problems can’t get aired or addressed by the population because when those on the inside bring information to the public that we have a right to know and the powers that be go after them, instead of us going to their defence, we sit on the side and talk about ’employment contract’.

    Then we ask ourselves why nothing changes and why our situation continues to deteriorate. The answer to this question is in our own behaviour. No ’employment contract’ can justify keeping quiet when, as a health care professional, you see a situation which, in your opinion, endangers patients’ lives. Your first responsibility is to your patients and to the people of Barbados above that to the QEH management and the government. And we should defend you from the management and the government when you speak out in our interests.

  • taken from Barbados Today-

    Opposition Senator Caswell Franklyn is questioning the validity of the charge which the state-run Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) has brought against one of its senior medical specialists.

    Franklyn, who is also a trade union leader, is today claiming that the hospital’s allegation that consultant general surgeon Dr Maurice Walrond breached or was in violation of his contract when he spoke on a radio call-in programme without the expressed permission of the board, is not a listed offence.

    “Speaking to the press without their permission is not one of the offences listed in the rules. That was left out,” the outspoken Opposition Senator told Barbados TODAY, noting that he has a copy of the rules.

    It is understood that Dr Walrond, who could not be reached for comment, has retained the services of an attorney at law.

    When contacted this afternoon, Executive Chairman of the QEH Juliet Bynoe-Sutherland would only tell Barbados TODAY “I do not comment on matters related to employees of the hospital.

    “Dr Walrond continues to be a valued member of our team.”

    His bargaining agent, the Barbados Association of Medical Practitioners (BAMP) met last night to discuss the kind of support and guidance it can provide Dr Walrond.

    However, the acting BAMP President Dr Geoffrey Lafond today confirmed that BAMP would not comment on any decisions of the meeting at this stage.

    Dr Walrond was notified of the charge against him in a letter dated May 18, 2020, and signed by Bynoe-Sutherland which said that disciplinary action is being contemplated and could include possible dismissal.

    “The offence for which you have been charged at paragraph 1 of this letter is a major offence. If the charge against you is upheld, it may result in disciplinary action against you as provided at rule 5.2.1 of the Terms and Conditions, up to, and including dismissal as provided by rule 5.2.28 of the Terms and Conditions,” Bynoe-Sutherland wrote in her correspondence to Walrond.

    The hospital is accusing the doctor of speaking to the press without the expressed permission of the board as stipulated in the employees’ contracts when on two occasions last week, he called in on Starcom Network’s Down To Brass Tacks and made remarks which “have brought, or are likely to bring the QEHB [Queen Elizabeth Hospital Board] into disrepute.”

    Speaking on behalf of a group of fellow surgeons, Walrond called the programme and lamented the inadequacies in operating theatres at the QEH and claimed that the hospital’s leadership was not doing enough to keep the environment COVID-19 free.

    The consultant general surgeon even suggested that patients who were COVID-19 positive but needed general surgery could find themselves at risk if transferred to the QEH for surgical procedures.

    But the Executive Chairman told Walrond in her letter that his statements made without her permission, were in breach or violation of rule 4.9.1 of the Code of Conduct set out in the Terms and Conditions of Service for employees of the QEH.

    Bynoe-Sutherland also informed him that an enquiry would be launched into the alleged offence or misconduct and he was told of various rights which are available to him.

    Two days after calling the radio programme with his concerns, the doctor wrote BAMP outlining similar issues he and his fellow surgeons were experiencing with the operating theatres at the QEH. In his letter dated May 13, 2020, Walrond said a patient room has been retrofitted for the emergency surgical care of COVID-19 patients at the Enmore complex opposite the QEH.

    “It is inadequate, unsafe for patient care, and places medical staff working in that facility at increased risk of infection,” his correspondence stated. He itemized what he termed a subset of deficiencies including that the facility was too small and did not meet certain International Health Facility guidelines. emmanueljoseph@barbadostoday.bb

    There is (or should be) a detailed process for ‘whistle blower’ complainants.. so respectfully to the doctor this CANNOT be it. He s no whistle-blower in that sense!

    This is a man of exact scientific process … why play so loose and careless … or had he already made repeated complaints to no avail ???

    And what of the other fundamental question of liability. Any reasonable lawyer who may have reason to bring suit on behalf of a client against the QEH would surely use this purposeful list of complaints to help define their negligence, so of course from a corporate perspective they have to DEFEND this vigorously….. But still none of us will accept bad practices in any medical facility but there are a business like everyplace else and protocols of conduct and contract obligations, and also freedom of lawful expression when there is wrongdoing must be done PROPERLY..

    They tell me some smart person once said that for the sake of a horse-shoe that a war was lost (or something like dat) … for the sake of proper practice this complainant could also lose, maybe.

    But (and @Northern this is for your astute -conspiratorial maybe – thought process… LOL) when a man with this doctor’s upbringing (scion of a QC and long standing senior QEH doctor) acts in this way it has to suggest that he is wagging the dog by its tail… just saying!

  • I think we’re missing the main point if we see this discussion as being about what Dr Walrond did or how the QEH management responded. To me, it’s really about what we as citizens of Barbados do in the current situation. Dr Walrond took a stand, made a decision, phoned Brass Tacks and said what he had to say. The management at QEH responded in the way they saw fit. The issue is now how do we, as citizens, respond to the situation. It seems to me that we have different options.

    We can support the actions of the QEH management and condemn Dr Walrond for phoning the radio programme without authorisation. In that way we can contribute to reinforcing the veil of secrecy that is strangling the country and under cover of which all types of corruption and wrongdoing flourish.

    Alternatively, we can shrug our shoulders, say Dr Walrond breached his employment contract and now will have to face the consequences of his breach. In this way we dismiss the political ramifications of what has happened and reduce the issue to an employment contract issue. In this way we express indifference to the veil of secrecy and the corruption and wrongdoing that it facilitates.

    Or, we can strongly support Dr Walrond’s action and oppose the efforts of the QEH mangement to punish him for it. By doing this, we hope that it can knock a brick out of the wall of secrecy and encourage others to come forward with information that Bajans have a right to know but which is currently hidden from them, while decisions that harm the majortiy are taken in the lodges and the other secret networks. By exercising our power as citizens, we can build a movement towards greater transparency regardless of whether the politicians keep their promises on freedom of information and whistle blowing legislation.

    I know where I stand and I hope more will take a similar stand so that we can begin to dismantle the veil of secrecy and its corruption and wrongdoing.

    Instead of addressing the issues at the hospital (and there are many), hospital management and government are trying to make this a disciplinary matter. However, the real issue is not about the doctors’ employment contract or breach thereof, the issue is about management and the quality of service-provision at the QEH.

    I won’t predict what will happen to the Doctor but the message has been sent “Don’t rock the boat”.

    At this point we know that Dr. Walrond and his group were given a hearing by QEH management. The point about this being a curtailing of his right to free expression on the matter is not applicable. What we have here is after the two sides discussed the matter, Dr. Walrond and his group were not satisfied and felt strong enough about it to come to the public. Is the public seized with all the facts to make an informed decision? Probably not. What we the public can do is wait to hear comments from BAMP, Dr. Walrond and other officials post meeting to react fairly.

    Pastor Who Claimed To Cure Coronavirus With Faith Dies Of Coronavirus

    A pastor and former presidential candidate in Cameroon who claimed he had cured coronavirus via laying hands has reportedly died of the infection.

    Frankline Ndifor died on Saturday at the age of 39, Voice of America reported.

    The authorities had to use force to enter Ndifor’s residence because his followers, who believed he was a prophet, had blocked entry as they prayed for his resurrection.

    “This is a pastor that has been laying hands [on the sick] and claiming that he cures COVID-19,” one of his followers, Rigobert Che, told VOA. “If you, the person that claims that you are curing COVID-19, you are dead, what about the fellow people that were affected by the COVID-19? Now that he is dead, I do not know how the people that he was laying hands on will be healed.”

    Dr. Gaelle Nnanga told VOA Ndifor’s followers called him to the scene. Upon arrival, Nnanga found the pastor in “agony.” Ndifor died less than 10 minutes later.

    According to the BBC, Ndifor’s family and followers had planned to contest the death ruling and keep the body for his resurrection. Police needed teargas to disperse the crowd, then forcefully removed the corpse for a quick burial in line with local procedures for COVID-19 infection, The Cameroon Tribune reported.

    Leaving aside Brain Tumour’s intervention and the very serious issues he raises (which should never arise, with impunity), doesn’t M. Waldron, M.D, not have a constitutional “right to freedom of expression” pursuant to Sec. 20 ? of the Barbados Constitution, including his right to comment on matters of public health, in the public interest? Assuming he might have such a “right”, when, where and why did he lose it?

    Should his constitutional right not trump any his private contractual obligations to the QEH Board?

    Could he not (in a sense, not unlike Brain T) argue that beyond the Boars’ seeking to bully him, the good doctor that he is, the Board is engaged in an arbitrary but persistent and pervasive pattern and practice of nonfeasance, malfeasance and misfeasance, whichever cognizable under the Laws? of Barbados?

    Conceded always that Barbados is different.

    However, the issue must remain: FIX THESE PROBLEMS WITHOUT WASTING MORE TIME & ENERGY. Perhaps, a hope forlorn. Perhaps, a more patient centered system might just require that at a minimum.

    Is that letter, addressed to the Doc, a disciplinary or warning letter or a charge sheet?

    You can see that the letter is couched in language concocted in the mind of a person with a military background at the senior officer level.

    A person trained in the soft and more ‘humane’ discipline of HR would not be so stilted and ‘regimented’ in their style of writing such a letter to a professionally trained employee; whether on contract or otherwise.

    It’s a good thing the lad mum’s has gone to the great beyond for that kind of approach would have met with a litany of counter charges and law suits.

    It is impossible to have a culture of innovation, development, social progress, productivity and at the same time always siding with the forces of reaction. Burying our head in the backward managerial systems which the British so-well imposed on us all, as disease.

    We are further surprised that any contract of service, for service, could, in this day and age still seek to control citizens for making a call presumably off-duty, on personal time and to a radio station which routinely invites the general public to participate.

    Are we therefore to assume that the doctor is a chattel slave still and therefore face the ire of a political-managerial establishment whose own failures are legendary.

    No wonder why we will continue to produce generations unable to think as a radical process. For every time anybody steps out of line the slave master system seeks to crack skulls.

    Would you consider the USA as a dictatorship and to be freedom of speech?

    About 10 yrs ago i had a workmate who did thing by the book. Took her complaint to her supervisors then managers. she did not get a response that satisfied her so you sent the complaint to her congressman. Eventually she took a concerns to a tv new outlet which during the blocked out her face and disguised her voice.
    When she return to work, for a few months all she could do was go on the computer and read new papers. She was never allowed to do a stroke of work while the case was being under investigation. Eventually she got fired. I heard she had contacted a lawyer to fight her case and that was the last I heard about that. She never returned to work at that site and I don’t think she would have been able to get another federal job.

    Anyone who want to think I said something different can feel free to come whatever idiotic conclusion they want.

    If she was tested and was positive would she have been give permission to pass through an airport in the usa and put the workers at risk? I do not know.

    Would her diplomatic status allow her to be positive and travel through a airport? I don’t know.

    My first though would be that if she was tested and positive that she would have been placed in some kind of quarantine/isolation but I do not know how her diplomatic status and private jet wood affect this.

In terms of not letting Dr. Waldron be thrown “under a bus” how can the other doctors save him??? by throwing themselves under a bus too to kill themselves???”

    It was not me, but YOU that raised all that “throw under the bus” and “dead” talk.

    Lemma ask you a question. If wunna get rid of Dr. Waldron and the other 10 or 11 doctors; who wunna gine replace them with? Political yardies who can’teven dress a lame foot? Whose only qualification is loyalty to the BLP?

    And “yes” I like most Bajans voted for the BLP in 20118.

    But I here studying my head if I should go that way again in 2023, I am sure that I isn’t the only Bajan, right now studying my head, studying my head,

    No yah idjut!

    If Dr.Waldron leaves every Bajan who would have benefited from his skillful hands will be the losers.

    If Dr. Waldron leaves Bajans will study his leaving on some fine morning in 2023 and vote some of the BLP candidates out. Perhaps not the PM because she is strong in her constituency, but you know as well as I do not every MP’s seat is as secure as the BLP’s.

    So some people’s political careers will go down the toilet. Some MP’s will be the losers.

    You want that?

    You sure?

    You sure, sure sure?

    Wunna BLP/DLP/All damn parties too like to think that wunna own the votes of the electorate.

    You do not.

    When Bajans go quiet, quiet, quiet that is when they are their most dangerous.

    If you doubt me, ask the DLP which also seemed to think that they owned the votes of the people, until some fine morning in May 2018 the people taught them otherwise. Cut their RH ‘asses. All 30 of them. Lolll!!!

    Listen and learn girl.

    Listen and learn.
