Her Majesty’s Cayman Islands Prison Service (HMCIPS) recently honoured its nurses in a staff appreciation ceremony last month.

Nurses Winslett Blake and Laura MacNab of Her Majesty’s Prison Northward and nurse Yazzmine Smith of Her Majesty’s Prison Fairbanks were recognised for their unwavering efforts in ensuring the safety of HMCIPS staff and prisoners during the peak of the COVID pandemic.

Commenting on the efforts of the nurses, Helen Reynolds, HMCIPS Supervisor and Treasurer for the Prison Service’s Welfare Association shared, “Having the nurses here during the pandemic provided the necessary daily healthcare support along with guidance to keep our prison community safe.”

 Acting HMCIPS Director Daniel Greaves remarked, “While there are a number of challenges with managing any communicable disease within an establishment such as a prison, throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our nurses made it a priority to safeguard our staff and the individuals in our custody and care while ensuring HMCIPS followed local health protocols and guidelines.”

“HMCIPS nurses continue to work tirelessly to reduce the impact of Covid-19 while balancing the management, safety, and security of our community. We are proud of their efforts and on behalf of HMCIPS and the Ministry of Home Affairs we extend thanks for their continued service to our community” Mr. Greaves continued.

The Hon. Sabrina Turner, MP commented, “As Minister for both Health and Wellness and Home Affairs, I am deeply grateful to our incredible nurses who are working tirelessly within the institutions, and in partnership with our prison team to keep our prisoners, staff, and our community safe throughout this unprecedented pandemic.”
