North Central Regional Health Authority - NCRHA

North Central Regional Health Authority - NCRHA The NCRHA serves the health needs of approximately 351,137 persons (CSO 2011) of Trinidad and Tobago

It is instructive to note that the NCRHA has undergone three (3) evolutions of what was originally the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex (EWMSC) Authority (1990). It was expanded in 1994 to become the Central Regional Health Authority. Subsequently, it was merged with the former, smaller NWRHA to become a larger NWRHA. This entity was once again disaggregated to become the existing NCRHA. It

can be appreciated that these transitions would have created managerial challenges and a level of instability that may have worked against the development of a coherent culture within the Authority.

Operating as usual

On October 10, 2015, WHO observes as WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY.

Theme for this year is "Dignity in Mental Health".

This year, WHO is raising awareness of what can be, and is being, done to ensure that people with mental health conditions can continue to live with dignity, through human rights-oriented policy and law, training of health professionals, respect for informed consent to treatment, inclusion in decision-making processes, and public information campaigns.

Too many people with mental health conditions around the world are deprived of their human rights. They are discriminated against, stigmatised and marginalised, also they are subject to emotional and physical abuse in both mental health facilities and the community.

Here are some types of mental illnesses:
Anxiety Disorders
Depression
Bipolar Disorder
Schizophrenia
Eating Disorders
Obsessive-Compulsive Order (OCD)
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Mental Illness is Real - STOP THE STIGMA!

SEPTEMBER is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.

As the name suggest, this type of cancer begins in the ovaries. Ovaries are reproductive glands found only in females (women).

Some risk factors of ovarian cancer are:
AGE - Most ovarian cancers develop after menopause in women 63 years of age or older.

REPRODUCTIVE HISTORY - Women who have been pregnant and carried it full term have a lower risk of ovarian cancer. Women who have their first full-term pregnancy after age 35 or who never carried a pregnancy to term have a higher risk of ovarian cancer. Breastfeeding may lower the risk even further.

BIRTH CONTROL - Women who have used oral contraceptives have a lower risk of ovarian cancer.

You can read more about this type of cancer at www.cancer.org

👏👏Today we were very successful in getting over 100 persons vaccinated at our vaccination site at Grand Bazaar. Special thanks to Nurse Peters and her team from the North Central Regional Health authority.

We do look forward to more collaborations with the Ministry of Health - Trinidad and Tobago and North Central Regional Health Authority - NCRHA on future vaccination drives.

The North Central Regional Health Authority - NCRHA carries the message and meaningfulness of the Divali festival with them throughout their journey as healthcare professionals, as they carry out their duties and services to the nation.

The world has been faced with the ongoing health crisis of Covid-19, as such, healthcare professionals are going above and beyond to save lives. The Divali message; darkness over light and good over evil, is symbolic as it reminds that together we will win the fight against this harmful disease.

Trinidad and Tobago, stay safe, stay protected!
The Occupational Safety and Health Agency cordially invites you to the virtual launch of its Online Spanish Resource Centre on Wednesday 17th November 2021 at 9:00 am.

Click here to join the meeting: https://teams.microsoft.com/l/meetup-join/19%3ameeting_MmQ0NTM1NjktNDk2NS00MDU1LWJkM2UtNDk3NDZlYjExNTM3%40thread.v2/0?context=%7b%22Tid%22%3a%2214c54a09-0edb-4247-b6eb-9a2c968149f7%22%2c%22Oid%22%3a%22ae122292-68a4-4a1f-bb00-cffe18d3c163%22%7d


The Spanish Resource Centre was conceptualised by the Agency as a tool to dismantle the communication barrier that restricts Spanish-speaking migrant workers from accessing the resources and protection offered by the OSHA. At the launch we will discuss the initiatives currently undertaken by the Agency and provide guidance about what employers of migrants can do to secure their employees’ safety and health.


The key objectives of the Spanish Resource Centre are:

• To ensure that Spanish-speaking migrant workers and organisations that represent their interests are aware of the resources available to them.
• To report to the nation the observations of the Agency regarding the involvement of Spanish-speaking migrant workers in OSH accidents.
• To build the safety and health understanding of Spanish-speaking migrant workers.
• To inform Spanish-speaking migrants how to report Safety and Health issues in the workplace.
• To highlight the work of the Agency.

I am a devoted healthcare provider with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychiatric Nursing and is currently pursuing a Master of Science Degree in Public Health. On October 1st, 2021, I was vaccinated with Johnson and Johnson vaccine (“One Shot”). On October 6th, 2021, I visited my local Health Centre due to the symptoms I was experiencing and was referred to Eric Williams Medical Science Complex Accident and Emergency Department for further investigations. To my dismay, during my visit, I experienced Institutional Abuse.

It is proven that insufficient quality and quantity of staffing correlate to the poor quality of care I received during my stay. Around 2:00am, I awakened to a persistent cough, resulting in my face mask becoming saturated with mucus and saliva. When I asked the nurse for a clean mask, I was denied the same. I was forced to wear a wet face mask in a freezing air-conditioned tent surrounded by suspected covid-19 patients. While the one nurse on duty went to sleep, no other registered nurse or medical officer was on site for more than three (3) hours. The following morning, I was denied having my temperature checked. Upon enquiry, the nurse responded that “the thermometer is broken,” even though it worked perfectly well the previous and subsequent shifts. In addition, there was a lack of respect for my dignity as I expressed that I was too short in stature to facilitate the portable toilet and kept messing myself. In return, the nursing staff response was very unfavourable. At this point, I was unable to hold back the tears and expressed my desire to be discharged. The doctor on duty rudely voiced that if I so desire to leave, just walk out and know that there will be no medical documents to go home with. I was held against my will in fear that my employers would not pay me for being away from duty for medical reasons once I left.

Patients’ rights and expectations are that we place ourselves in a position of responsibility for our lives, and to deny us that right is devastating. Significant changes to attitudes, values, beliefs and behaviours are needed within the healthcare system!

North Central Regional Health Authority - NCRHA

This is an open letter to Whom It May Concern at the Five Regional Health Authorities where the issue regarding patient visiting hours should be amended given the early changes in the times for weekend curfew.

Its challenging for many persons to commute from the various hospitals/health facilities, particularly those who live far distances, after the 4pm-5pm visiting hours in order to get to their respective homes before the 7pm curfew kicks into effect on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Is it perhaps possible that the weekend visiting hours can be changed from either 2pm-3pm or 3pm-4pm to allow not only allow visitors to get home in time but to also spend that quality time with their loved ones at hospital?

Thanks in advance and I trust that my request would be considered and perhaps approved to the benefit of those affected.
