Puerto Plata’s young mother goes to give birth at the hospital, but they forget about her and her baby dies
Puerto Plata.- A young mother being on her last week of pregnancy was admitted in Ricardo Limardo Hospital today. The doctor confirmed that it was time to give birth, he put her in the bed and left, he returned several hours later telling that he had forgotten about her. The baby died as a result of his negligence.
The mother Maria Isabel Rosario Payan explained: “I got to the hospital, I checked in, they put me down in the bed, the doctor left, hours later he returned, and told me that he had forgotten about me. I gave birth, my baby was born alive but did not cry and died today .”
The baby had died 24 hours after birth by eating fecal, according to the medical certificate issued by the forensic experts, according to the statement she was not properly served. Her daughter was born alive but did not cry, was purple, she was placed in an incubator and then died.
It is recalled that this same hospital has received dozens of complaints of the same kind and no one was interested in reviewing whether the medical professionals who work there get punished due to their treatment towards poor mothers. Mothers who go to this center can’t afford private clinics, they are framed within the rules that apply, and are often victims of careless negligence and lack of interest.
This is a situation that the health ministry should review and establish sanctions in place.
