C.E.O of K.H.M.H Apologizes to Union for Tone in Responding to Their Concerns

Chandra Nisbet-Cansino

One of the points of contention between the Hospital Authority and their Workers Union is that there continue to be severe shortages of medicines, supplies, and equipment in the hospital. And when the K.H.M.H. Workers Union circulated their press release on the shortages over a week ago, Cansino responded a few days later that supplies were in stock when she checked. However, those figures were based on her checks within the system after some supplies had been replenished. As a result, she offered an apology to the union today.

“I want to take the opportunity because there’s been a lot of contention with the release issued by the union in regards to the shortages, which I think triggered all of this, and my response when I gave numbers of available supplies and I think it came off as if I was not agreeing there were shortages, that the union was not telling the truth, which was not the case. I just gave the updated numbers , so that’s an area of contention with the union and I, so I want to apologize if I offended anybody by saying what I said or by sharing the information that I shared because really, the intention is to collaborate and to resolve and to move forward. So I just wanted to make sure that the union receives that message.”
