The Eastern Regional Health Authority ("ERHA") remains fully committed to the provision of quality health care services
and to its patients at the Sangre Grande Hospital and to all those members seeking treatment at the health facilities under
its jurisdiction. It is unfortunate that our regional health authority which is renowned for its efficient health services and high
standards of patient care has been affected by the recent protests at the Sangre Grande Hospital.
As you may know, the provision of health care is an essential service to the members of the public. It is our wish that dur-
ing the upcoming Carnival celebrations that we are in a position to provide these services so that those people seeking
treatment from us are not deprived of our aid or left suffer.
As such the ERHA has made the following provisions during the period of 14th February 2015 to 17th February 2015 in

• Matura Outreach Centre
• Manzanilla Outreach Centre
• Sangre Grande Health Centre

Accident & Emergency Departments:

(Ambulance and On-call driver base)
2. The Minister of National Security has agreed to deploy members of the Trinidad and Tobago Regiment to provide
further security at the Sangre Grande Hospital;
3. The ERHA has secured the services of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service to provide further security at the
Sangre Grande Hospital;
4. The following services:

• Clinics are closed until Wednesday February 18, 2015 (after Carnival)

• Dialysis continues as normal
We kindly urge that members of the public be cognisant of the aforesaid provisions so that they can make the necessary
arrangements when seeking our services this Carnival period.

MILAN---Fiorentina cruised to a 3-1 win
at Sassuolo in Serie A yesterday to keep
alive its chances of qualifying for the
Champions League with goals from
Khouma Babacar and new signing
Salah, who joined on loan from Chelsea
in the deal which took Juan Cuadrado to
Stamford Bridge, scored the opener thanks
to an assist from Babacar, who netted
Fiorentina s other two goals.
Domenico Berardi, who had earlier hit
the post, scored a consolation for Sassuolo.
Fiorentina provisionally closed the gap
on third-place to four points with Napoli
playing at Palermo later and hoping to move
to within a point of second-place Roma.
The win will also serve as a timely boost
to Fiorentina ahead of Thursday s Europa
League round of 32 tie against Tottenham
Sassuolo remained 12th after what was
only its second home defeat of the season.
Salah was handed his first start by Vin-
cenzo Montella and the Egypt winger opened
his Fiorentina account on the half-hour
mark, racing onto Babacar s back-heel flick
and firing into the bottom left corner.
He returned the favor two minutes later
with a through ball which allowed Babacar
to get past Paolo Cannavaro and beat Andrea
Consigli from close range.
Berardi almost got Sassuolo back into the
match on the stroke of halftime but his
curling strike crashed off the left post.
Babacar doubled his tally in the 62nd
minute after beating the offside trap to bring
down David Pizarro s long ball.
Berardi reduced the deficit five minutes
later with a powerful looping header over
Fiorentina goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu.
PARIS---Paris Saint-Germain is facing an injury
crisis ahead of its Champions League match
against Chelsea in three days time.
Four players limped off injured in yesterday s
2-2 home draw with Caen, where nine-man PSG
conceded two sloppy late goals to hand the French
league title initiative to Lyon.
PSG coach Laurent Blanc said midfielder Yohan
Cabaye, Brazilian center half Marquinhos, Brazil
winger Lucas and right back Serge Aurier will all
miss the Chelsea game, while key midfielder Blaise
Matuidi has a sore knee and is rated as doubt-
"We ve lost four players but above all two points,"
a despondent Blanc said. "We have to pull ourselves
together and get ready for Tuesday."
Lyon can move four points clear of PSG and
Marseille---which drew 2-2 on Friday---if it wins
at Lorient on Sunday.
"It s a big blow for us but we have to cope with
it. It s the first time I ve ever experienced such an
extraordinary scenario," Blanc said. "When you
make your first two changes in the first 45 minutes,
it s hard to judge when to make the third."
Although PSG defended poorly, there were at
least mitigating circumstances since it played the
last 10 minutes with nine players.
"I ve never seen anything like it. We were very
unlucky," PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic said.
"We ll see what happens on Tuesday."
Cabaye and Lucas have groin injuries, Marquin-
hos has a hamstring injury and Aurier hurt his
thigh, Blanc said, adding that "given the nature
of the four injuries I think they ll be out for quite
Blanc said Matuidi felt a recurrence of some
pain behind his knee.
"He just took a blow, but it s a concern," Blanc
To add to the woes, Ibrahimovic misses the trip
to Monaco on March 1 through suspension after
taking his shirt off when celebrating his second-
minute goal. Ezequiel Lavezzi made it 2-0 shortly
before halftime as PSG appeared to be set for a
Instead, the problems are piling up for Blanc,
who now finds himself under increasing pres-
sure---unlike his counterpart Jose Mourinho.
Chelsea has had a full week to prepare for PSG
since it is not involved in FA Cup action this week-
Poor composure under pressure once again
proved to be PSG s undoing---like it was in defeats
to minnows Bastia and Guingamp---as Emiliano
Sala scored in the 89th minute and strike partner
Herve Bazile struck in the second minute of injury
Cabaye limped off after 15 minutes and Mar-
quinhos was replaced at the start of the second
half by David Luiz, who was supposed to be rested
for the Chelsea game.
Aurier hurt himself in the 70th, attempting a
pass, and was taken off on a stretcher, meaning
PSG was down to ten men because Blanc had
already made his three substitutions.
Things had started so well for PSG, which had
won seven of its eight previous matches in all
competitions---and drew the other against Lyon.
Cabaye released Aurier down the right and his
cross was finished powerfully by Ibrahimovic for
his 11th league goal of the season.
Ibrahimovic and Lucas then set up Lavezzi, who
scored with a low shot from the left.
Lavezzi missed a great chance to make 3-0 in
the 60th, when his header was saved by Caen
goalkeeper Remy Vercoutre. (AP)
