TREATMENT IN MEDICAL INSTITU-
TIONS IN ;;.,NIDAD.

A despatch received from the Minister
of Health an.i Local Government, Trnli-
dad and Tobagoc, on the question of t-ie
procedure fcr admission of patients
from other British West Indian Colonies
to the Medical Institutions in Trinidad,
complains thnt there appears to be some
misunderstanding about the conditions
of admission of overse'+s pat''- ts which
were previously published. It is resret'ed
that patients from neighboring Colo-
nies seeking medical attention continue
to arrive in Trinidad witboit seeking"
prior approval of that Government, thus


203-














204 SAI.UT VINCENT, TUESDAY, 10 JULY, 1956.-(No. 38).


causing additional administrative diffi-
culties.
In order to save prospective patients
and the Government of Trinidad the
embarrassment and difficJiAy which arise
when the approved p.io,;eure is not
adhered to, the following, approved pro-
cedure for admission to medical institu-
tions in Trinidad is published agnAn 1or
general information.
(a) All arrangements for admission
must be made through the Govern-
ment of the territory concerned
who should apply to the Minister
of Health, Trinidad and Tobago.
(b) If it is decided that the patient
may be admitted, the Minister will
so inform the Government con-
cerned and will arange with the
Immigration Authorities a n d
Health Department in Trinidad
for the patient's admission both
to the Colony and to the appro-
priate institution to be facilitated.
*(c) While it is expected that physi-
cians and surgeons in neighbour-
ing territories will wish to com-
municate direct with specialist
officers in this Colony about the
Clinical conditions of patients to
be admitted, it should be clearly
understood that no arrangements
are to be made by these individual
physicians or surgeons for the
admission of any patient. Re-
quests should be made only
through the Government cnn
cerned, as in (a) above, and in
sufficient time to enable proper
consideration to be given to the
requests here and adequate ar-
rangements made.
(d) Requests for admission by indi-
vidual patients or doctors will not
be considered by the Government
of Trinidad. In cpses in which
the proper procedure for applica-
tion i- not i-seC. natients arriving
in Trinidad run tne xisk .,- being
returned immediately by the Im-
migration Authorities to their
home territories. On no account
should patients proceed to Trini-
dad until they have ascertained
that they can be admitted.
(e) All requests for admission to the
Mental Hospital should always be
accompanied by the case history
of the patient.
(f) All requests for admission should
be accompanied by an undertaking
from the Government concerned
that the payment of all fees and
expenses (including cost of re-
patriation and the expenses of
escorts, if necessary) is guaran-
teed by that Government.
It is also notified for general informa-
tion that apart from the variable costs
of operation, X-ray, consultations, and
other fees for bacteriological and other
specialist examination, the fixed charge


for maintenance at all the institutions
is as follows:-
Caura Tuberculosis Sanatorium-$6.00
per day.
Masson Tuberculosis Hospital-$6.00
per day.
Colonial Hospitals (Port of Spain and
San Fernando-$6.00 per day.
Mental Hlospital-$3.06 per day.
(N.B.-Revision of the fees in respect
of Caura and Masson is at present un-
der consideration).
It should be carefully noted that the
above charges for maintenance represent
the actual cost per patient to the Gov-
ernment and that the Government of
Trinidad regrets that it will not be pos-
sible therefore to make special reduc-
tions in the rates for indigent patients
from other territories. It is also to be
made clear to the public that the above
fees are for maintenance only and are
applicable whether the patient is warded
in a Public Ward or a Private room.
