Patients told to bring their own blood glucose monitors and strips to San Fernando General Hospital

Patients at the San Fernando General Hospital are now being advised to bring their own blood glucose monitor to the hospital.

Patients planning to seek treatment at the hospital will have to walk with not only the strips to test blood glucose levels, but the monitor machine itself.

This as the Southwest Regional Health Authority confirms that the hospital does not have these supplies in stock and may not for at least another month.
