The grieving common-law husband of 26-year-old Maquader Martin wants answers before his wife is laid to rest.
Davis Nedd is claiming that his wife’s death was due to negligence on the part of the medical personnel at the Maternity Ward of the San Fernando General Hospital.
Martin died on the floor near the bathroom area of the maternity ward on Saturday, three days after she gave birth to her first baby.
The family of a La Romaine woman, who died three days after she gave birth to a healthy baby girl at the San Fernando General Hospital, is blaming negligence for her death.
The family of Maquader Martin, 26, also believe the hospital is trying to cover up the incident because the post-mortem was done on Sunday in the absence of any family member.
The autopsy, according to her family, found that she died from a pulmonary embolism (a blood clot in the lungs).
The Ministry of Health says it notes that a Health Advisory has been recently issued by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food Safety and Inspection Services (FSIS) and the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
This is concerning a nationwide (USA) recall of (Class 1) Raw Beef Products branded as Kroger Ground Beef, distributed by the Kroger Co. Cincinnati, Ohio, due to possible Salmonella contamination.
The ministry says that no other brands of ground beef are implicated in this recall.
The Caribbean public health sector is poised to benefit from a US$1.1 million award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Fogarty International Center which will be handed over to the SUNY UWI Center for Leadership and Sustainable Development.
The Center is a product of collaboration between two major educational institutions—State University of New York (SUNY) and The University of the West Indies (The UWI) —deeply committed to the development and growth of their respective constituents and the well-being of humanity.
