“Please don’t bore me with details thinks Frank who wouldn’t dream of having any treatment in Fiji, let alone the CWM”
Last week Fiji Times presented a lovely puff piece of our yet to be elected PM presiding over the opening of a newly commissioned operating theatre at the CWM hospital. Unfortunately this was followed by a presentation of some of the uncomfortable facts about the way the CWM works in the era of Frankenstein medicine. Dr Josese Turagava explained that 73 out of 5189 patients died during operations at the CWM. In trying to explain Dr Turagava had to admit that poor record keeping at the CWM meant he had not been able to get cases older than 2012 so he really didn’t know what was going on. That’s alright said Frank, looking bored, I wouldn’t dream of having any treatment anyway.
