0

A doctor, who is the main suspect in the fire that ripped through a heart laboratory at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC), has been fired with immediate effect after the hospital’s management found that he was guilty of “gross misconduct” following a sexual harassment investigation.

The News Room reported previously that this doctor works in the cardiology department of the Georgetown Public Hospital and was sent on leave on December 31, 2021, over a complaint made by a female member of the department.

The woman complained that the doctor, who is her superior, was sexually harassing her via telephone calls and messages. And one day after, on New Year’s Day, the fire devastated the hospital.

A hearing was held on Friday last over the sexual harassment complaint which was attended by the doctor and his lawyer.

The News Room has confirmed that the doctor received his termination letter on Monday.

“Having investigated the matter and afforded you an opportunity to be heard, it is the considered view of Management that you are guilty of serious misconduct,” the letter, seen by the News Room, noted.

The News Room was reliably informed that the decision to terminate the doctor is final and he has been asked to return all property belonging to the hospital.

Meanwhile, it is important to note that investigations into the fire continue.
