A relative of a Bishop Gap’s man who sustained stab wounds yesterday, is not happy that the hospital has released him.

Kiran Herman, 29, sustained two stab wounds yesterday morning around 7:30 when he allegedly intervened in a dispute between his female cousin and a young man. He was admitted to Victoria Hospital in critical condition, according to relatives, but his condition stabilised later that same day.

Herman was discharged from Victoria Hospital this morning, Sept. 10 at about 9:30. However, a relative, speaking on condition of anonymity, said she is not happy that he was released so soon.

“VH (Victoria Hospital) has discharged Kiran from hospital, saying that there isn’t enough beds,” the relative said.

She said though Herman is now able to speak and move around, he is clearly still weak and in discomfort.

“We’re pissed and mad. That’s nonsense,” she said.

However, a source at Victoria Hospital said patients who are “out of the woods” are normally discharged.

“If you’re out of the woods, if your vital organs were not severely affected then the hospital would not keep you. Once the patient sticks to his/her medication and follows the doctor’s instructions they should be fine. Otherwise keeping them here when other serious critical patients are coming in daily, makes no sense,” the source explained.

However, the family is thankful that Kiran survived the incident. The family is also concerned that Kiran is being blamed for the stabbing.

“These people have been saying is five people that attack the guy (the suspect), that’s why he did the stabbing. If five people attack you, how comes you have no scratches or marks on your body. But don’t worry, what goes around, comes around. God is not asleep, he is awake,” a relative told St. Lucia News Online (SNO).

  2. Stop blaming the government and its agencies for your ignorances. How can he be well enough to walk about yet needs to be on a hospital bed. Human beings make mistakes and doctors and nurses are human beings. However it is clear there was no mistake on VH's part.

  5. Haha...This is really funny.. Why do people think it is important to be kept in the hospital for more days than necessary whatever the illness is? Same in St. Vincent. When doctors tell patient it is time to go home, they tell the doctor "No, I don't wanna go home.". Maybe it makes their disease look more severe if they spend more days at the hospital or maybe it's just cool to say one spend 2 months in the hospital rather than 2 days.

  7. y should V H leave a stable patient who has no organ damage or internal bleeds on a bed need by another critical patient. there is something call self care and recouperation at home. he is a grown ass man not a child. follow ur doctors instructions take ur meds as prescribed n go get ur daily dressings at the health center n ull b just fine. let VH keep that bed for someone who is in real need of it.

  8. A woman who gives birth is discharged sooner from the hospital than this guy was, so the relative should be quiet. Like some others said, this guy should be at home resting. If he is strong enough to walk around showing his battle scars, why does he need to stay in the hospital any longer?

  9. THUG LIFE tattoo big and bold. Walking about showing the battle scars and wounds. I wonder when our young men will realize that these lifestyles, gangs, role-models, music etc are destructive to themselves. I don't know what transpired but the youth need to learn alternate dispute management techniques.

  10. The staff at VH act as if they are so good that they can fix you when on the brink of death which is at the point that they recommend that you come in then leave. They make you afraid to come in and guilty when you take up their time.

  11. So, they sent him home to rest . . . right? Why then is he not resting? He seem to be going about his own business and if the wound opens up, then y'all will say it is VH's fault. Go rest your damn self and leave the gallivanting to others.
