Blood spill temporarily closed road

Blood spill temporarily closed road

Hall’s Road, St. Michael had to be temporarily closed by police today and traffic diverted after blood samples from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital fell from a vehicle and were run over by other automobiles.

The spill occurred at the James A Tudor Roundabout near the old Globe Cinema.

Bystanders were concerned.

Executive Chairman of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Juliet  Bynoe-Sutherland, tells Starcom Network News that a private waste hauler was transporting hospital waste for off-site disposal or incineration since the QEH incinerator is out of service. 

She notes the waste was being transported by a certified waste hauler who has been performing that task for many years without incident.
