Police Constable 342 Daniele Daisy.

The Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force is mourning the death of another member of their ranks, the second in about six weeks.

Dead is Police Constable 342 Daniele Daisy, of Old Montrose.

Daisy died at 3:50 p.m. on Saturday at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital, where she was being treated for an illness, police said in a statement.

The officer was admitted to the hospital on April 7 after she fell ill at home.

Daisy enlisted into the RSVGPF on May 14, 2003 and served for 16 years, 13 of which were spent at the Telecommunications Department.

She also worked at the Rapid Response Unit and other areas within the RSVGPF.

“PC 342 Daisy was a very friendly, polite, committed and disciplined police officer,” the statement said.

It added:  

“The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Colin John, the deputy commissioner of police, the assistant commissioners of police, gazetted officers, the staff at Telecommunications Department and all other ranks of the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force extend deepest condolence to the family and friends of the late PC 342 Daniele Daisy. May her soul rest in eternal peace.”

Daisy’s death follows that of Assistant Superintendent of Police, Daniel Hall, who died on on March 3.

    What levels of specialization or expertise exist within the public and private health sector in St. Vincent and the Grenadines? In the absence of specialists, what efforts are made by local physicians, particularly those in public hospital settings to consult with neighboring Caribbean countries or internationally to manage patients with critical illnesses? What role does the Ministry of Health play to ensure that doctors in the public hospitals keep up to date with the latest advances in medical technologies and treatments so that even patients with poor prognosis are given options, as opposed to being told too many times there is nothing we can do for you.

    At the very least, relatives and patients (if possible) should be consulted on various therapeutic options, whether available locally or abroad, and should be included in the healthcare decision making of the patient. It seems that our physicians in SVG are becoming less patient-centric, less empathetic and more egotistic, so much so that families are almost afraid to approach them to ask questions or to receive important information about their loved ones.

    To this end, how do we improve the level of accountability and efficiency among physicians, particularly those who manage our critically ill patients in the public hospitals.

    Daniele never stood a chance while being hospitalized at Milton Cato Memorial Hospital. Our family knew that if she were to have the smallest chance of survival, we would have to seek healthcare abroad. Sadly, our efforts were short-lived due to her untimely passing. As the world moves forward with medical advances, persons in SVG are left behind and will continue to see the demise of their loved ones if we do not catch up and also ensure that we have specialists in place to treat with critical illnesses.

    Our family mourns at this time. Our hearts are crushed. FLY WITH THE ANGELS MY LOVE. YOUR CANDLE BURNED OUT LONG BEFORE YOUR LEGEND EVER WILL.
