Jamaica hospital tightens security after baby’s HIV scare

Stabroek News "(Jamaica Observer) The Victoria Jubilee Hospital implemented a procedural security change on Tuesday in response to last Saturday’s frightening incident in which a mentally ill patient infected with HIV/AIDS went into the maternity hospital’s nursery and breastfed another woman’s week-old baby.

The change, as explained by Lyttleton ‘Tanny’ Shirley who chairs the board of the South East Regional Health Authority, is intended to provide a more secure environment for the newborn on the nursery ward and prevent any such future occurrence."
