The administrative functions of the Nurses Association of Jamaica (NAJ) have been bolstered through the presentation of computers by Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness.

The two laptop and four desktop computers were accepted by NAJ President, Janet Coore-Farr, and members of the association, during a brief ceremony held at the Office of the Prime Minister last afternoon (September 5).

Mr. Holness noted that the donation of the computers was the fulfillment of a commitment made to the nurses during a visit to his office recently.

“During that meeting they expressed concerns about the shortage of equipment generally and they specifically mentioned that they didn’t have computers to help them with their work,” he said.

Mr. Holness said the equipment will help the nurses with appropriate record-keeping and report preparation.  They will also facilitate training programmes.

In another two weeks, the Prime Minister will present an infusion pump and blood pressure machine to the nurses.

Mrs. Janet Coore-Farr expressed gratitude to the Prime Minister, noting that the NAJ is appreciative of the computers.
