We need tightened security at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital!

Editor: Can more be done to enhance security at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital? It does appear so. We can appreciate what the security guards do at the gate presently, inquiring for IDs and asking about whom a person wishes to visit. However, it may be time for security guards to be equipped with the device for passing over one’s body to determine if he or she may be carrying a concealed weapon to inflict harm on a patient or on a health worker at the hospital. {{more}}We must keep in mind that we are living in the worsening Last Days, characterized by dangerous times in which the Scriptures tell us that people would be “without natural affection” and also “fierce.” 2 Timothy 3:1, 3.

If the Prime Minister and Minister of Health can look into this matter and do something positive about it, then a life or lives may be saved from injury or death in the future. It is very comforting to know that God promises a New World free of crime and other negative occurrences. Psalm 37: 9 – 11; Revelation 21: 3, 4. Abundant peace and happiness will prevail at that future time. Until that New World arrives, however, why not put measures in place to make the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital and even the other hospitals more secure! Safety should be high on the list of priority. Proverbs 27:12.
