It is an issue that I have raised countless times in this chamber and in communications with the Minister, yet nothing seems to be done. Staff are at their wits end and the INMO have raised their concerns While there has been significant recruitment and 100 additional acute beds added the hospital still faces runaway overcrowding.”“The staff at our hospital have done an incredible job throughout the pandemic, they work in difficult and overcrowded conditions. We gave them applause, but what has not been delivered is appropriate capacity to cope with the large numbers presenting at our A&E Department. “Figures compiled by the INMO show that there have been in excess of 40 patients being treated on trolleys each day this week, with 953 patients having been treated on trolleys throughout April.Deputy Quinlivan added:“A 96-bed unit was committed to but only half of these will be new beds. The delivery of all 96 beds needs to be expedited. Day after day, the figures show that UHL remains the most overcrowded hospital in the state. The INMO wants to know what is going wrong and so do I. But more importantly, I would like to know what steps the government are taking to manage this issue?Deputy Quinlivan concluded: “I back the call for HIQA to visit, investigate and make recommendations at UHL.  I hope this will happen and I urged the Tánaiste in the Dail to support that call and commit to acting on any recommendations that HIQA make?” RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Print Facebooklast_img read more

Steed has served on the county schools board of education for 32 years and Botts for 18 years. Both were unopposed in the November general election. Steed was elected to serve the board as its president during the 2016-2017 year. Dr. Greg Price was elected vice-president to serve during the same term. Bazzell recognized the Pike County High School Bulldogs and Goshen High School Eagles on their success on the gridiron this season. Both bowed out of the state playoffs Friday night but were outstanding representatives of their schools and the Pike County School System throughout the season, Bazzell said. Presentations by Dr. Donnell Carter and sixth grade math teachers Kristy Reaves, Banks School, and Jessica Walker, Goshen Elementary, provided updated information about the school system’s Standards Based Grading system. Carter said there is a lot of excitement about the new grading system and good things are happening. Walker said that, in the past, students have been leaving the classroom with the perception of what they knew not being in line with test scores. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration “The students didn’t know what we thought they knew,” she said. “With Standards Based Grading, we are able to track the students so we know what they know.”She said the biggest fear about the program was how the parents would react. However, the parents have been supportive of the program that allows students to take ownership of their learning.“The parents are better informed about how their children are doing,” Bazzell said. “There will be bumps down the road but we feel good about the grading system and what it will do for our students.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By The Penny Hoarder Published 3:00 am Tuesday, November 15, 2016 Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits By Jaine Treadwelllast_img read more

French Patrol Seizes 3-Ton Cocaine Haul off Costa Rica

first_img A French warship seized close to three tons of cocaine and arrested several passengers on a boat in international waters off Costa Rica, the French embassy in San Jose said on 23 March. The operation took place at dawn Monday when the speedboat was intercepted by the French frigate, the Ventose, according to the embassy. The Ventose patrols the zone as part of a Caribbean anti-drugs agreement signed by France, the United States, the Netherlands, Belize, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and the Dominican Republic. The French embassy said “close to three tons of cocaine” were seized. Two Hondurans and two Colombians on board were arrested and transferred to the French island of Martinique. U.S. officials estimate that 250 tons of cocaine arrive in the United States from Central America, a transit route from South America, where cocaine is produced.
