“I reached out to Southern Regional Hospital for them to provide to me what was some of the issues that they were having. Now there was a miscommunication between the requisition being sent to CMS and CMS to the supplier. Those have been delivered so I can say here today that most of the requests that was sent in by Southern Regional Hospital, including Punta Gorda has been delivered yesterday. I got that notification yesterday morning; confirmed that medications. And like I said, let me point this out, the whole process of the tender cycle that occurred, signing at the end of August has also caused some delays. This is the reason why I took to cabinet three weeks ago a paper that will adjust that process and to see that in the next tender cycle that that is improved.”
