Critical section of GPHC shuts down after power outage

first_imgCritical sections of the Georgetown Public Hospital were left in darkness following an internal electrical malfunction the medical institution experienced on Thursday morning, causing the Guyana Fire Service to respond after smoke was seen coming from a specific area.The Georgetown Public HospitalThe outage lasted for several hours but by Thursday afternoon electricity was restored. Guyana Times was told that the problem was triggered by the failure of a power breaker in the main power control room at the Hospital.Public Relations Officer Mitsy Campbell told this publication that as a result of the nature of the problem, the backup generator system could not kick in immediately. She added that this resulted in the A, C, D, the new Inpatient building and sections of the Accident and Emergency Unit being without power.According to Campbell, measures were put in place in other sections of the medical facility for persons needing urgent medical care and lights were installed to offer some temporary aid to the A&E department.Campbell further noted that no staff left their duties and were all working together to ensure the work was done. “Nobody ran, the staff are all working as per normal,” she said.The operating theatre and other important sections of the hospital were not majorly affected and other services such as X-rays, ultrasound and CT scans were transferred to the Cancer Institute, while works were ongoing to fix the problem.Several patients reported hearing an explosion.A doctor working in the Accident and Emergency Unit told this publication that electricians had been working for four hours to fix the problem but to no avail. He said most patients left the hospital since the medical practitioners were not able to attend to them without proper lighting and some waited for several hours before leaving.He said some patients needing urgent care however remained and doctors and nurses were working tirelessly to ensure the situation remained under control with the limited resources available to them. “Some of the patients that received dates to do tests and so on were very agitated when we told them they would have to wait until the power comes on to do the tests and that was indefinite,” he said.He added that other affected areas include the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit, Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, Accident and Emergency Department, the recovery department, specialist clinics and the pharmacy.last_img read more

first_img 1 Chelsea have watched Leeds ace ‘perfect for Premier League football’ regularly Arsenal ace heading for January exit as German club ready bid for midfielder Reds supporters have had their fingers burnt before with Philippe Coutinho the most recent villain, signing a similar contract to Salah in January 2017 and leaving for Barcelona a year later.Luis Suarez and Fernando Torres have done similar in the past too, and this has lead to a selection of fans becoming even more fearful over the future of their goal-getting talisman.You can see how Liverpool fans reacted on Twitter below.

TRAPP: THANK GOD FOR GIVEN AND DUNNE AFTER RUSSIA DRAW

first_imgGiovanni Trapattoni admits Ireland’s goalless draw with Russia today would not have been possible without the super Shay Given and brilliant Richard Dunne.Defender Dunne was superb at the back, denying the Russians on numerous occasions with a series of headed clearances, blocks and tackles.His club team-mate Shay Given also played a huge role in Tuesday’s stalemate in Moscow, denying Andrey Arshavin, Igor Shemsov and Roman Shirokov amongst others. And Trapattoni acknowledged their contribution as well as the rest of the team for keeping alive Ireland’s hopes of qualifying for Euro 2012 with their seventh consecutive clean sheet.“He was fantastic,” said the Italian of Dunne. “I thank God that we had Richard in this game. Shay Given also saved two or three goals. They were fantastic saves.”“The determination and the application on the pitch of the team, particularly of the senior players like Richard Dunne, Shay Given, Aiden McGeady and Keith Andrews, was the pull for the younger players who gained confidence from them.“That balance allowed us to achieve what I call a golden point. With this result, we can look to the future because we have cleared a big obstacle tonight.” Given has a superb game. He he pulled off a string of fine saves, including a vital late stop from Konstantin Zyryanov, to claim a seventh successive clean sheet for his team – a new record – which kept them firmly in he race for Euro 2012 qualification.And McGeady worked almost as a second full back, running back again and again to deny the Russians.TRAPP: THANK GOD FOR GIVEN AND DUNNE AFTER RUSSIA DRAW was last modified: September 6th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:aiden mcgeadydonegaldaily.comIrelandRussiaShay Givenlast_img read more

What we learned from the Champions League semi final second leg

first_imgThis is the second time Barcelona have let a 3 goal caution slip in the Champions League. (Agency Photos)1. Barcelona did not learn from Roma exitBarcelona suffered a second successive humiliating exit from the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night. After leading 3-0 from the first leg against Liverpool, Ernesto Valverde’s side lost 4-0 at Anfield to bow out 3-4 on aggregate.This is the second consecutive season that Barca have let-slip a huge first leg advantage to exit Europe’s premier club competition.Over a year ago, they suffered the same fate as they let a 4-1 quarter final first leg advantage slip against Roma and exited on away goals after losing 3-0 in the second leg.This just proves how the Bulgranas have failed to learn from their previous short-comings. Valverde will carry the biggest bunch of the blame but the players too have had a part to play in both loses.Despite winning two successive league crowns, Valverde will always be remembered as the Barca manager who oversaw two humiliating exits from the Champions League.2. Anfield is the most intimidating stadium in EuropeAnfield is one of the most vocal Stadiums in the world.Not in your wildest of dreams, would you have imagined how the second leg semifinal between Liverpool and Barcelona would unfold. At a Stadium that is known for its vocals during a league game, a classic if any, had a perfect ground set for it.Those that have played in it will attest that if you are playing for the opposition, you rarely enjoy the game as the crowd won’t let you and those donning Liverpool shirts claim it is the most motivating arena during a football match.Tuesday was the perfect setting for a come-back as the fans, like they so often do, pushed the Reds-on from the moment the first whistle was blown and whoever visits Anfield in future will know how intimidating a stadium, it is. Or ask Lionel Messi and company!3. Lucas Moura still has ball in himMoura scored only 46 goals for PSG before Joining Spurs.The PSG reject who sent Tottenham Hotspurs into their first ever Champions League final. That is the perfect way to address Lucas Moura, years from today.In 2018, Moura was transferred to Spurs from PSG after 5 years in which he had failed to live up to the hype. Scoring only 46 goals in 230 games, the Brazilian was deemed surplus to requirements in Paris and not so many sides were willing to take a gamble on him.Two seasons later, Moura scored three goals as Tottenham over turned a first leg home defeat to eliminate Ajax Amsterdam and storm the 2019 Champions League season. He may not have scored so many goals for Spurs, in the build up to the famous night at the Johan Cuiyff Arena but for the North London side, the three will be the most important he will ever score in their shirt.At 26, may be the Brazilian still has loads of football in him and who would say no at the moment.4. Not all Fairy-tales end in joyAjax led 3-0 at some point in their semi final against Spurs.Everyone fell in love with Ajax and wished their fairy-tale would end in joy but it was not to be as Tottenham Hotspurs had other ideas.Leading 1-0 from the first leg, the Erik Ten Hag lead Dutch side raced into a 2-0 first first half lead in the second to lead the tie 3-0 on aggregate. It was in the second half that everything fall apart as somehow, Ajax conceded three goals to bow out on away goals.Most neutrals must have been praying to see this young, fearless and adventurous side, in the finals but it was not to be, like most fairy tales in football tend not to end in joy.However, the likes of Captain Matthijas De Ligt, Donny Van de Beek, David Neres, Hakim Ziyech and Frankie de Jong, have made a name for themselves and it is just a matter of time and the Big sides come calling.Comments Tags: topuefa champions leagueWhat we learned from the Champions Leaguelast_img read more

Sterling praised after debut

first_imgRaheem Sterling won praise from manager Roy Hodgson after the Liverpool youngster made his England debut against Sweden.The 17-year-old from Harlesden was involved in the first England goal in their 4-2 defeat and caused the Swedish defence problems before being substituted late in the game.“I thought the debutants were good, all of them did fine and I am certainly a wiser man than before this game going into 2013,” said Hodgson.“We were undone by some individual brilliance and maybe a bit of inexperience,” he added.
