Glen Peters, 45, is seeking answers from officials of the Tobago Regional Health Authority (TRHA) following the death of his 48-year-old wife Mavis John-Peters last week.
The death certificate showed that she died of stomach cancer.
Peters, who lives in Delaford, claims there were delays in diagnosing his wife’s condition when she was admitted to the Scarborough General Hospital and he believes this is why she ensured “bad pain, sleepless nights and then let her die.”
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.
