(file photo)Chief Executive Officer of Consulting firm V F Inch Dr. Valda Henry has called for disciplinary actions to be instituted upon nurses who bring the profession into disrepute.Dr. Henry was delivering an address on the topic Embracing Ethics over Privilege” at the 54th anniversary of the Dominica Nurses Association on Monday.“That is why the profession must have its own ways of disciplining. The question is to what extent? I am sure you have received countless complaints about some of these nurses. What is being done about it? Are you still waiting for evidence? Yes you must have evidence but if there are so many complaints it requires an investigation. Your investigation will give you the evidence that you are looking for and so you must discipline,” she said.Dr Henry said the Code of Conduct is also a way of ensuring that nurses are disciplined.“You must have somewhere in your conditions of employment that requires that you uphold that code of conduct. In the person’s appraisal, the upholding of the code of conduct must be an element,” she added.Dominica Vibes News Share

The [Barbados] NIS board has made a decision which has been formally communicated to Four Seasons officials and to me. “The IDB’s board is to give formal approval of the investment in early February…the credit committee has already approved it and, most likely, the board will approve…once the credit committee gives the go-ahead.” The Finance Minister revealed that he met recently with a number of Four Season villa investors, who indicated an interest to restart their investment in the project, on receipt of updated information within 30 days.Mr. Sinckler said the Four Seasons brand would enhance the island’s tourism and economic prospects over the longer term. firstname.lastname@example.orgBGIS Media
