Health Minister Dr Christopher Tufton has indicated that he has received a preliminary report on the matter where construction work was being done on the paediatric ward at the Savanna-la-Mar Hospital while occupied by children.

Tufton made the disclosure in an interview with JIS News following a tour of the facility in Westmoreland on Friday.

He had ordered a probe after a video and images surfaced on social media showing construction work on the ward.

Tufton said there was a break down in protocol noting that efforts will be made to prevent a recurrence.

He also informed that normality has been restored at the facility as work on the ward has been completed.

The health minister said certain decisions will be taken once he receives the final report.
