UPDATE: Health Minister Timothy airlifted to Martinique

Health Minister Julius Timothy
Health Minister Julius Timothy

Dominica’s Health Minister, Julius Timothy, has been taken to Martinique by air ambulance after he collapsed on Wednesday afternoon and was admitted to hospital.

Timothy was rushed to the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) on Wednesday afternoon and reports indicate he may have suffered a stroke.

He was taken to Martinique early Wednesday evening from the Canefield Airport.

Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, said Timothy complained of numbness in certain parts of his body before he was rushed to hospital. “I was able to communicate with him, so at least he is alert and aware of his surrounding,” he said. “In due course the medical professionals will give an update on his progress.”

He called on all Dominicans to pray for Timothy

DNO was reliably informed that at the time of him being taken to Martinique Timothy was unable to speak.

DNO will continue following this story and will publish information as it becomes available.

      I sympathize with the minister n his recent illness ad I wish him a speedy recovery. My concern, however, is this: I PHM not fit or adequate enough to accommodate the Minister of Health, how equipped is it t accommodate the rest of us Dominicans? Does this mean that the hospital is not equipped enough to deal with a stroke?

    Canefield is only some 56 miles from Fort de France, as the crow flies. If the French medical facilities are that superior why don’t we seek to join them rather than persevere with our own inadequate service under the pretence of independence.

    Politics aside I know this guy back in my hood as a kid bigger boy than i was growing up.He ought to have been 14 yrs my senior.After leaving for Stlucia in the 70’s did not see him for yrs. We come from the same hood but never saw eye to eye. Nuh said. Politcs aside rhe bro suffered a stroke am not informed niether you about the degree of his CVA. Was he suffering from Hypertension most likely. Now I /we wish he makesa good recovery as a human to another.
    I wonder what his former boys are saying behind close doors? Knowing these suckers they must be………. but htis is physiology increase blood pressure plus unhealthy life style = stroke.
    years ago he played much soccer then later picked up walking. However he lacked the sticktoitness continued eating bad foods drinking so this is the issue of aging and living badly. God ,Budda, Allah, Mohameed,Marx, stalin, Jehovea take your pick has nothing to do with his recovery or deteriation.

    But I do understand Dominicans the man is selling medical insurance to the public so u mean he doh have for himself? Give me a break. When Sukie had his heart attack his family did not airlift him to Martinique? So what is the difference” Is not the state that send him, so why Mr Timothy family canot airlift him toooooooo? The nurses and Doctors in PMH have to change there attitude towards patients, and not the government. The PM not working in the hospital. The employees are so have when machines are not working? They malhandle the equipment is Government you hurting?

      I do not wish to criticize you or disappoint you but even in countries where there may be better doctors and equipment, some people still die and some remain ill for a prolonged time. You should be aware when people’s time is up, it is up. Some people have been cured in Dominica; some have not; likewise in other countries. Therefore, just pray for the health and welfare of Mr. Timothy. Be positive.

    I am very sorry for Mr Timothy and hope he recovers fully. It is very interesting that he was immediately flown to Martinique. This means that there is absolutely no confidence in the Princess Margaret hospital!! If our PM were to be taken ill he would be immediately flown out of the island. We are all human beings regardless of what we do surely this highlights the need for a state of the Art hospital here in Dominica. I also am reading about the plight of the injured young footballer Prince who people say also needs to be flown off the island for medical attention and how many more are waiting??

    May 2, 2013

    I wish Mr.Timothy a speedy recovery but I had my questions too. Why was he airlifted, couldn’t they take care of him at the PMH or as one person wrote don’t the trust the doctors there. I am not against anyone getting the best treatment possible but if he could be treated here and they send him to Martinique, that don’t send a good message for the rest of us in Dominica. I think that is telling us, once we can afford it, get out of Dominica for our health treatment run away from the PMH. Again that is just what I am getting from that, I might be totally wrong but if we really have to seat and think of it, there are a lot of questions.

  23. SAD!!
    May 2, 2013

    For a health Minister who is always on the media talking about the health services in Dominica’s first option is to travel for medical care overseas sends a strong message whether it come from his own pocket or not. He knows firsthand what goes on there and the lack of supplies, machineries and expertise. Just below this article, we saw another article which says that patients awaiting surgery can now breathe a sigh of relief as supplies have arrived. Come on people, Dominica needs an importation of overseas expertise to come and open up a medical centre in Dominica, Concessions are available for this and this should be looked into. The airline tickets we pay can go be circulated right here in our economy.

    Our Minister of Health suffers a stroke and has to be flown out for medical care. Is that a sign that we need to improve the healthcare system here? If it was a little marlayway without insurance or financial means they would have to be admitted and take their chances. I hope when Mr Timothy pulls through he really use his personal medical emergency and lack of faith in his own country’s medical/hospital system to push for the much needed improvements and upgrades we need at PMH. Maybe he will do just that….Get well soon sir.

      That’s the power of money. I wish him a speedy recovery. I was by the airport at the time and although I am not a fan of him was very empathetic…I felt sad when the helicopter was ascending. But the most embarrassing thing in this situation is that the airport air stripe does not even have lights. That’s an absolute shame!!

    We need to think before we criticize. For all those who are bringing politics, did you all even think that with his career and financial success and ultimately access to alternate resources, he and his family made the decision to send him for further medical care sans political help? That he has medial insurance to cover expenses? etc.

      Mr. Timothy has every right to chose where- & by whom he is treated, especially if he has his own means or insurance to pay for it. However, it does not mitigate the fact that his airlift to Martinique does not demonstrate confidence in our own medical services under his remit. I sincerely hope he recovers speedily and fully and that this experience will be an impetus for us to raise our own standards. What value independence if we can not care aequately for our sick?

        Sometimes I read comments and I think, we think those of us who write will never have any type of emegencies in our life.

        We should not allow politics or rather the party we support or don’t support to consume our very being.

        My Good people, we are all human beings. What is happening to the Minister of Health right now can happen to me or you or someone we know in a second or anytime down the road.

        People all over the world, travel to get medical care elsewhere many times even in first world countries – depending on the situation and type of medical care required.

        Praise God we have a hospital in a close neigbouring island that can deal with the emergencies we may not be able to deal with at home.

        Do we know if there was a doctor on staff at that time who could deal with the type of situation the minister faced? Even if he would stay in the hospital? Was a doctor available – I haven’t seen anyone speak of that.

        If we do, do we know whether the doctor was available? Attending to another patient? Was in an operating room? On another emergency?

      Just imagine that the very minister of Health does not have confidence in the medical services provided at PMH. Who is this reflective of? Me? This tells us hat Werner his family or govt chose o send him overseas it simply means PMH is deficient and ill-equipped. That’s all!

    I sat next to the Minister on Palm Sunday at St. Alphonsus. When the person taking up the offering accidentally skipped me, he pulled her back, whispering, “You missed the gentleman.”

    In the following weeks, the Hon. Timothy and I have had a couple meetings in his office. We frankly discussed a broad range of hospital-related issues. Naturally we disagree on some things, but earnestly share the same goal of ‘a people strong and healthy.’ At all times he exhibited much enthusiasm and consideration.

    Forget about politics. Just pray for the man – as you would want others to pray for you. Here’s hoping that Julius makes a full recovery and continues his good work.

Let’s all come together to host a telethon to raise funds for Mr Prince to facilitate his visit to Martinique to get better care in lieu of his current medical condition. We are all willing to help and are tied at the hands so help us, help Prince, help our island, help our people.

    I wish Mr Timothy a speedy recovery. It is ironic that Mr Timothy is the health Minister and was immediately airlifted to Martinique!! This is very frightening for us Dominicans who obviously would be rushed to the Princess Margaret hospital here and receive medical treatment that is not up to the right standard. We were told recently that there was a lack of anesthetic on the island this is totally unacceptable. Dominica needs a new hospital which is run properly and does not run out of the basic daily drugs. We don’t need a 10 million US dollar abattoir which is at present being built at the old boxing plant in the Layou Valley! as there are not enough animals on the island to be slaughtered in it on a daily basis, we need that money spent on a new hospital!!

    Speedy Recovery Mr. Timothy. A few concerns however:
    1. This shows that we have a very weak medical system. Someone collapses, with a stroke or whatever reason, the Princess Margaret Hospital CANNOT deal with it. – news item last week says that the theatre runs out of Anesthesia. What happens if a bus load of people has an accident many of the persons have acute injuries? What Then?

    2. The government of Dominica made up of the Prime ministers and his MPs are ALL elected Ministers. They were PUT there by Democracy. I’m not saying that anyone who falls sick on the island should be airlifted. But, the people of Dominica are tax payers just like any where else. Don’t we deserve to have some special treatment?

    Special treatment especially HEROES. Like some of the comments said, Our hero/comrade who was the sole survivor in the accident at Pond – Casse wasn’t air lifted. Whether or not his condition was serious or not, if the PM had gotten into the SAME accident, the air ambulance would be called up instantly! We need to protect and support our own.

    3. State Palace. The PM built this palace. But guess what, in the next elections he could end up back to square 0. He and his entire squad. Was it necessary to build this facility? Isn’t health care more important? A state of the art Hospital? So many doctors and nurses graduating from CUBA and DSC. Give them jobs. We don’t even have a proper health center in Roseau.

    Food for thought!

      Why do you people just run your trap. Joselyn does have health insurance which covers him being flown away for medical attention, the issue is those doctors at PMH playing all knowing without a scan at the very least, claiming he is ok when they have no way of knowing the full extent of his internal injuries. If he goes without tellign the insurance he needs to go, sadly the insurance will not cover his medical needs irrespective of what the patient is feeling. What needs to be done is for sports officials, his parents and himself demand a release from those ego trippers at PMH. He definitely needs to be further evaluated. If they don’t the poor lad will have to meet those expenses on his own.

      RE Timothy bsuiness man or not he is a minister of goverment and needs a scan so this is the reason he was flown away promplty.

        Roz, I am referring to health insurance and not general or life insurance. health is for health,irregardless whether you got sick on the job. If what you are saying is correct, then Dominica is more than backward!

      Are you saying a Fireman was not afforded Gov’t insurance? Is it that the contributions are so high that employees are unable to afford gov’t insurance. We need some clarification on how this works, for those of us not living on island.

      • Roz
        May 2, 2013

        Insurance policies cover a specific risk. in this case, risk of getting hurt or dying on the job. As for young fire officer, he was not on the job in his capacity as fire officer when he got hurt. His fireman insurance will not cover that.

    This is a wake up call for the Government to realize that we are one, and when one suffer, all suffer. This is also why, we should care for each other and love one another. No one is above sickness. If the minister of health could get a stroke, the other minister have to take note.

    Hurry up fix and improve the hospitals. Not everyone cold fly out of the country for medical treatment. We know, a lot of times even though a country have the best medical facilities, people will still die. But at list they know they tried.
    May God heal his body speedily, and if no, he will be in the hands of the Lord. All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God. Without him, we are nothing. PEACE, LOVE AND LOTS OF HEALTH, ALL OF DOMINICA.

    Timothy was rushed to the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) on Wednesday afternoon and reports indicate he may have suffered a stroke.—News Article

    A stroke is a big threat to his Life at his age. Nonetheless, I am joining with some of you here, who understand that there is no greater physician than the Man named Jesus; for by His Stripes we are healed.

    I pray that our Health Minister, knows this truth and is able to speak the words of acceptance in his mind, so that Jesus will touch him through the hands of the nurses and doctors who will attend to him.

    Dear God, let it be Your Will, that Health Minister of Dominica, Mr. Julius Timothy, will return home from the hospital–healed by the Stripes of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen!

      Its a good thing is not man that controls God. In your same prayer’ you are blessing and cursing in the same breath. The good book says to bless your enemies.

      Dominica is one country where everyone should be as unified in a positive direction. That cannot be achieved if you keep the fires of hatred burning by giving it fuel. Stop the fighting and evil.

      It sounds better if you simply wish the minister the best and stop there. But going on to curse others sorts of nullify the prayer. It is better to make sincere prayers a private matter, instead of grandstanding and brandishing it like a loaded weapon.

      Dominica is small. Every sick person is known by most, so the effect is widespread. The population is limited so chose your words carefully. Remember. Love is the answer.

    I guess people like you would not understand that there are certain privileges that government ministers will enjoy that the ordinary individual will not. This may just one of them (ie. specialized medical treatment overseas). Furthermore, I would hate to think that Mr. Timothy or any successful businessman would not have these plans in place in case of such eventualities.
    Don’t you think that perhaps Mr. Jno. Hope’s medical condition was a delicate one whereby being air lifted was not the best thing at the time?
    Let’s wish both of them well and stop all that speculation and what ifs.

      Wow! Some Dominicans have actually arrived at a pathetic state where they ACCEPT that they are at a LOWER class than the governing elite, whom they appointed as ‘humble servants’ and stewards of their welfare.

      Getting a bigger salary than the average man is understandable; but stating that a minister life is worth MORE than a FIREMAN who daily put his LIFE and limb at deaths door to save strangers, is pure rubbish.

      In reality, the present regime takes more glory in the dead than the living(when it comes to the common man) just see how they are rambling to name objects after the deceased footballers.

      One should not make excuses for this insensitive group of political harlots, who view the populace as no more than disposable napkins.

      There is no doubt about it, Mr. Timothy as a senior politician genuinely deserves the BEST medical treatment available. Similarly the YOUNG fireman and national footballer (who saved several lives in one day) deserves the best medical treatment too.

I hope you also know that when God sends rain it falls on everyone house roof top. So is sickness and death and I am glad that that is not down to the government ministers as they would be happy to exempt themselves and pass it on to the ordinary individual. When are we going to call a spade a spade yes ministers got privileges and the ordinary man should have privileges too. Stop this plantation mentality. Instead of a $27,000000 palace a state of the art hospital should be built so that we all as citizens should benefit and it would not be a privilege to the government ministers.

They boast and refuse to give any commitment in writing to poor suffering Dominicans who are victims of such terrible raod accidents and sometimes when you go to Court ten to fifteen years does pass before you can get anything. So while everybody is now turning him into “Saint Timothy” remember God is a just and fair God….he sees and knows all things…!If the hospital is good why is he running to Martinique? he should stay there and take his pills and injection like everbody else…the politicians seems to be all blind because the things happen infront them but is like they not seeing “rich” can and do get sick too…remeber “Chavez” he run to Cuba so many times but that did not stop anything..provide for your people and you will be providing for yourself and your family.

      Your comments are completely out of place and sounds rather emotional, hasty and misconceived. For instance you initiate by condemning contributors comments as “ignorant” then you drive on to speculate that the minister airlift was due to he being a “businessman”. Get your facts!

      If you were not ignorant you will be stating as a matter of FACT instead of imagination. Your intolerance to the plurality of views of other individuals reeks of bigotry. You simply can’t force people to hallucinate the way you do.

      Doctors, are not perfect. they make mistakes too. There are numerous incidents of individuals in accidents here dying a few days later after local doctors discharge them, with a ‘clean bill of health’.

      In civilised countries every patient is encouraged to get a second medical opinion. In Dominica and other failed states, it appears that when one ‘infallible’ doctor speaks it is final. At the end of the day everyman has a RIGHT to live.

      So you are inferring that the mdeical treatment received at the PMH was unreliable? Te guy is NOT in ctirical care – what else do you guys want?

      OMG..the DRs at the PMH did a great job in getting him to the point where he is released.

      He may need followup care – but he is not critical like the mInister of health so to compare the to is just uncalled for.

      At the moment when Joselyn was critical the Drs said that it would have cause more trauma to move him out than to treat him at the PMH ..guess what – THEY WERE RIGHT

      so saying could have is pointless – he was saved. Just be thankful for that and stop the political diatribes and NONSENSE

      Exactly what you are saying. No irony! Everyone does not get the same treatments anywhere on earth! If that was so every single person in Dominica should not be assisted at PMH but sent overseas after an accident. These two gentlemen will not get the same treatment. Get real

      Is Joslyn worst off than when he was admitted to the PMH? If he is not, then there is nothing to be concerned about.
      It appeared that he got excellent treatment at PMH. Know that as he said, it is a miracle that he is alive. God was with him and continues to be with him as he recuperates, through the prayers of others, near and far. Pray for him too.

      It may not seem fair to us, but that is a privilege afforded to Ministers of Government. And for your information this is not unique to Dominica. And really, I do not have an issue with a Minister of Government being flown out in such a case.

      But truly, there are medical insurances that cover such. Even my personal medical insurance covers emergency air-ambulance, and having been a successful businessman for so many years, that is something I am sure Mr. Timothy would have. But as a Minister of Government who serves the state, WE SHOULD JUST WISH HIM THE BEST!

      How ironic can you reiterate that? No one survives on their own. Someday some how we are all going to need someone. God intervened sent the bus driver to facilitate Mr prince take him to the hospital, people like myself and all over the world were crying and praying for our lone survivor. The staff at the Princess Margaret hospital, the unconditional love of his family and by extension his Dominican family has and is still helping him coupe with his current situation. We all can do our part to help our hero. What have you done to facilitate Mr Prince? I’m suggesting raising funds. How much are you going to contribute towards sending him to a better medical facility? We all can make a difference. There are strength in numbers. Let’s all work as one for a common good.

      If it was necessary that he was sent to Martinique and for what? The doctor(s) stated that it was not necessary. In this case, they knew best. Consider he is now home. Is he complaining to you? Are you not happy that he is home and recuperating?

    • Oh please
      May 2, 2013

      So they should have tell the air ambulance “hol’ it” while they run to get Mr. Prince at his home to give him a vep in the same ambulance? THAT was the opportunity you speak off? Ok – I officially give up. smh

        Don’t b an id10t. =_=)”. The moment u buy something, you pay tax. O_O. Didn’t you know? Oh here is a fun fact, we are building a state palace and not a hospital. This palace has no real proper use and is a crying sham. So when u start talking down ppls about not paying tax, remember the useless project, pockets and hands the tax payer money goes into.

    • Justice and Truth

      As it is stated, he may have had a stroke. Hard work, anxiety on the job, lack of ample rest and sleep could be a few factors.
      Last evening I heard on WNED, U.S. about the above which I have been aware of.
      Only this evening, on my way in I had a conversation with someone on health matters and about strokes and aneurisms – of the brain, that we should drink enough water (approximately 6 to 8 glasses daily, not huge ones) which is necessary for the body, for the blood to pump the heart and to the brain. Consider the heat in DA. People could get dehydrated.
      Sometime ago I heard on TV that we should drink two glasses of milk a day. How many of us do that? Let us make note of that and practice it. It is not early for those who are young to practice these health matters. The younger and sooner the better.
