Trinidad Express / I recently had a relative admitted to the San Fernando General Hospital. This experience made me aware of the abhorrent conditions in which people of this country live.

We had to wait until 4 a.m. because there were no beds available at the hospital. It was only when I experienced this for myself that I realised how bad it really was. Many sick people had to sleep on the ground or stay awake all night hoping that they could get a hospital bed. It was an awful experience.
