Fmr. hospital CEO apologises for ‘sweetman’ comment
See below full statement issued by former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Linden Hospital Complex, Rudy Small:
I am issuing an unequivocal apology to the nurses and all staff of the Linden Hospital Complex. I made a statement that was hurtful to the nurses and that must have hurt other staff. There is no excuse for my public utterances on this matter and, I am, therefore, sincerely apologizing to all those that my utterances have hurt.
I have disappointed those who placed their confidence in me and for that I am truly sorry.
When I assumed my post as the CEO of the Linden Hospital Complex, November 2020, I committed to manage this hospital in the best interest of the people of Linden and Region 10. I committed to work with my management and technical colleagues to ensure we together, united in our mission, will make the Linden Hospital one of the best functioning hospitals in Guyana and a place we could all be proud of. I had promised that the Linden Hospital Complex will be an institution that will bring pride to the people of Region 10.
I remain committed to these ideals and to the mission.
I am again reiterating my commitment. I genuinely believe that the staff of the Linden Hospital Complex is a dedicated and committed staff and I am renewing my promise to work with our staff to ensure the mission is achieved.
I have learnt much since coming to the Linden Hospital Complex and everyday prepares me to be better. I will work diligently with all staff to ensure that the original mission of a successful and great institution is promoted everyday.
