Nursing staff saddened by colleague’s death

Kemlon Johnson-Quammie has been hailed as true nursing professional who was very dedicated and committed as a care giver.

Kemlon’s partly decomposed body was found hanging from a cliff at Dauphine last Tuesday 24, after she was reported missing the previous day by her husband, Dexter Quammie.{{more}}

Sister Julia Williams of the Levi Latham Hospital in Mesopotamia, who was Kemlon’s immediate supervisor, told SEARCHLIGHT that the entire staff was very saddened having heard of her death.

“She was a professional who never abandoned her post and worked well,” said Sister Williams.

When SEARCHLIGHT visited the hospital Sister Williams said that the staff has been struggling to deal with her death.

Meanwhile, the St Vincent and the Grenadines Nurses’ Association issued a news release expressing sadness and shock at her passing.

“The SVG Nurses’ Association condemns violence of any form in the society, since one of the fundamental responsibilities of the nurse, is to preserve life,” the release says.

The release signed by President Beverly Liverpool called on nurses all over St Vincent and the Grenadines to rally around the nurses in the Marriaqua Health District, especially those assigned to the Levi Latham Hospital.

Kemlon’s husband, Dexzter Quammie was at press time assisting police with their investigation into her death.
